Cute Kids Perform Epic Lip Sync to Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’
Spoofs of Gotye’s monster hit ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’ are starting to stack up. The ode to heartbreak was memorably parodied in a ‘Saturday Night Live’ digital short and even an a cappella group performed a rendition. And now, two six-year-old kids lip sync along to the song in this awesome music video.
Filmed and edited together over the span of several car rides, the video does a good job of capturing the song’s somber tone. It is, after all, about a relationship gone bad, something these two youngsters hopefully won’t know anything about for many years to come.
While the song may be a bit age-inappropriate (especially with lyrics like “Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over”), there’s no age restriction on being a viral star. The video has racked up nearly 200,000 views on YouTube and more than 2,000 likes on Facebook. It’s safe to say these kids will be someone you’ll know for quite some time.
