After debuting a week ago, the spoof has garnered over 200,000 hits, and is covered on FanSided, Mashable, and Dorkly

Myles And Kolton are two buddies who love to play music. Here, they cover I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz. On guitar and ukulele, they smash the song out of the park.

The problem is, it’s very hard to go viral even if you’re very talented. But Myles has a secret weapon. 

His aunt just happens to be Gianni from Walk Off The Earth–you know, the band who went viral with their cover of Somebody That I Used To Know.

After Gianni posted the video on Walk Off The Earth’s Facebook page, the video instantly went viral. 

Could these two dethrone the Bieber?


Thanks Miry!

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?
