Parodies Are the Sincerest Forms of Flattery

It has been said that parodies are the sincerest form of flattery, and in a way its true. In order to inspire people to mock it, the original has to at least be interesting enough to make an impact and grab people's attention. Gotye's song "Somebody That I Used to Know" has been an enormous hit and has spawned some very interesting remakes.


Walk Off the Earth recorded a terrific cover version in which all the band mates sang the song while playing one single string instrument together.


When Gotye appeared on Saturday Night Live, comedians Andy Samberg and Taran Killiam joined the singer in a hilarious skit that poked fun at the popular video.


The latest spoof is a fantastic take off of both Gotye's song and Star Wars, as Darth Vader voices the disenchantment that many fans of the franchise have with the changes that George Lucas has made. "The Star Wars That I Used to Know" is presented by Teddie Films, by Irael Curtis featuring Ryan Richardson. It's a testament to the greatness of both the Gotye hit song and the Star Wars saga.
