With the video for Gotye's monster smash hit "Somebody That I Used To Know" celebrating its one-year anniversary, Jam! Music has compiled a selection of the song and video's best parodies. As the site says, "Virtually every popular song released in the last decade has at some point been spoofed, covered, reconstructed and deconstructed online. But . . . 'Somebody That I Used To Know' seems to have hit a special nerve: the tune's enormous popularity and the low-tech approach to the accompanying video have unleashed a tidal wave of covers, remixes and creative parodies."

"Somebody That I Used To Know" has topped four different radio charts, including Modern Rock, Triple A, Hot AC and Pop.

The song is found on Gotye's most recent album, Making Mirrors.

Gotye recently unveiled the details of a lengthy North American tour that will kick off on August 22nd in Morrison, Colorado, finishing two months later on October 13th with a performance at the Austin City Limits festival in Austin, Texas.
