When we posted Walk Off the Earth’s brilliant cover of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” at the beginning of the year, one commenter wrote, “uugghh. they are lipsyching & guitarsyching to a pre-recording which defeats the purpose of this video.” Well, smart guy, here’s a counter argument: their performance on Ellen.
The Ontario quintet recreate their performance in a live setting, proving that this was no studio trickery. They hit the high notes and keep the rhythm in a performance that remains as awesome as it was when we first heard it. And, yes, the beard guy still rocks. Check it out below.
