With all the current Gangnam Style obsessing, it seems the the Internet already forgot about its love from the past summer, Somebody That I Used To know

And electronics nerd  is bring it back in a whole new. They made a parody music video of the hit single by Gotye with old technology, like printers and hard drives, ‘playing’ the music.

It’s a one of a kind spoof that has garnered nearly a million views since the weekend alone and is also featured on YouTubeTrends.

So Gotye‘s mega hit Somebody That I Used To Know will no doubt go down as this year’s top one hit wonder. There are literally hundreds of covers of the ultra viral song. 

So what does one do when they have a hit like this one their hands. After feeling very awesome for bringing music to so many people, Gotye got right back to making music. … Out of the various covers of the their song. 

The resulting track is a one of a kind, world-wide mash up of YouTube musicians, appropriately titled Somebodies: A YouTube Orchestra.  

Does it get any more meta?

Remember ‘way back’ in January when Canadian indy band  went viralviral with their unique cover of the not yet so well known Gotye hit, Somebody That I Used To Know, that had their entire band playing on just one guitar?

They even made it on some TV shows, and Ellen jokingly commented how, “It’s a good thing y’all don’t play ukulele, y’all are really crammed in there.”

Well, The Waffle Stompers are up for the ukulele challenge. The six member band crowded around a tiny ukulele, and performed the hit Gotye song to perfection on the tiny string instrument.

By now, the whole world is sick of Gotye’s one hit wonder Somebody That I Used To Know. The parodies immediately started to be dumped online, many that were good, and even more that were terrible. 

Comedian Eric Schwartz has made the parody to end all parodies about how he quickly fell in love with the song, but how that love has waned. 

 The spoof music video, titled Some Music That I Used To Love, is featured on Slate, HuffPost, and Mashable
