Canadian indie band Walk Off the Earth have become something like overnight sensations. They put together a music video cover of Gotye's hit single "Somebody That I Used To Know and posted it to YouTube just over two weeks ago. It has since been viewed over 30,000,000 times. The unusual aspect of the video is it features five people playing one guitar. The performance itself is haunting. Today Ellen DeGeneres had the band appear on her show where they put any skeptics' comments to rest by performing "Somebody That I Used To Know" on the single guitar live. Walk Off the Earth are known for performing a wide range of covers. Meanwhile, Gotye's original version of "Somebody That I Used To Know" is at #25 on the iTunes digital singles sales chart.
