15 Of The Funniest Examples Of The Gotye Meme

Hard to imagine that just a few months ago singer-songwriter Gotye was a complete unknown outside of his native Australia. But thanks to the popularity of his smash hit “Somebody That I Used To Know” (we don’t need to link it here, right?) – which continues to sit atop of the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week – the Aussie performer has achieved considerable fame. In fact, Gotye’s ubiquity is so great that he has crossed over from normal-level fame to become, yes, an internet meme. (For those unfamiliar with the term, a meme is essentially an Internet-spawned concept or joke.) In this case, it’s the lyrics and the video from “Somebody That I Used To Know” that have been reinterpreted into something new… and really, really funny. As such, we decided to pull together the best that the Gotye meme has to offer. So please enjoy the following .jpgs and videos as much as we have.





And now for some videos to mix it up a bit.
