If you haven’t seen this yet, it’ll make your Monday. Ontario quartet Walk Off the Earth posted a cover a few days ago where they all play Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know.” Specifically, they all play it on a single guitar. With area singer Sarah Blackwood joining in on the Kimbra part, that’s 10 hands on one acoustic guitar.

The coordination is impressive, almost as impressive as the fact that it actually sounds great. We’d probably be excited about it even without the novelty theatrics, but with them it’s racked up over four million views in four days. Watch it below, then download the MP3 at Bandcamp.
