Walk Off the Earth.... and to the Top of the Charts!

So I'm sure a lot of you have heard Gotye's incredible break up song, "Somebody that I Used to Know". It's so emotional and the harmonies are great. Couldn't get any better, right? Wrong! Walk Off the Earth almost knocked out the original with their insane cover of the song where all five members play together flawlessly on a single guitar, all contributing different parts. It's really unbelievable. So unbelievable that it has over 60 million views compared to the over 80 million views that Gotye has. But remember Walk Off the Earth posted their video exactly 6 months after Gotye. They've won acclaim from celebrities on Twitter, appeared on Ellen, and even signed a contract with Columbia Records just a couple weeks ago. So you decide, do you think the cover will get more views than the original? Who's gonna win?! Let me know, indie-monsters!
