Band Covers Gotye with One Guitar

I'm going to go ahead and say that Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" is going to be the most covered song of the year.

Evidence: Besides Ingrid Michaelson's recent version, check out this crazy cover involving the five members of Canadian band Walk Off the Earth, and one guitar. Props to these guys for figuring out and coordinating all the different parts, including percussion, and trading off vocals so smoothly. It reminds me of ancient indigenous people using every part of the animals they killed. No part of that guitar goes to waste. Maybe that's just me.
