JJ: Walk off the Earth


One of my favorite things in the world to do is discover cool and unusual things on the internet. I'm a bit of a junkie. When I'm not at work (and sometimes when I am), I spend hours scouring "teh interwebz" for anything I can find that interests me. Being a pretty big music-junkie, it's especially exciting when the 2 cross paths.

This brings me to the band Walk Off The Earth.



Walk off the Earth is an Indie band from Canada that's probably most famous for a cover of the song "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye. The video for that featured all 5 band members playing the same guitar (at the same time) and got millions of hits in a relatively short time on YouTube. They've been featured on the Ellen DeGeneres show and just about every video they've put out has gone viral in a matter of days.



Not surprising, their talent and internet popularity led to them getting a record deal last year.

The latest WOTE offering is a collaboration with KRNFX, who is a ridiculous beat-boxer, to rock an a-capella version of Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble." Friends, this is an incredible cover that's already viral on YouTube with over 3 million views after 6 days!
