Inspired by Kutiman's innovative YouTube video remix project "ThruYou," Wally De Backer — better known to music listeners as Gotye — decided to submit his own contribution to the "mountain of interpretations of" his phenomenally successful hit single "Somebody That I Used to Know" by taking advantage of "the massive remixability that such a large, varied yet connected bundle of source material offered."

"Somebodies: A YouTube Orchestra" combines parts of myriad covers uploaded by YouTube users since the song's release to create a synergistic love letter to fans.

A full list of links to the original videos can be found on Gotye's blog.
