Gotye Dog And Cat Parody: 'Somebody That I Used To Know' Gets The Animal Treatment (VIDEO)

It's amazing what you can do with an HD camera, some green screens, a cat, a dog, a lot of paint and plenty of time on your hands, isn't it? For example, you could cover Gotye megahit Somebody You Used To Know and post the result onto YouTube.

Believe it or not, that's what online animal lovers The Pet Collective did, and here's the video to prove it.

Sure the joke is a simple one - replace Gotye's words with "woof", Kimbra's words with "Meow" - but somehow there's something remarkably endearing about the whole affair. God bless you internet, you sweet little information super highway, you.

And for more Gotye covers - more serious ones than this one, mind - check out this video gallery, which shows just how versatile the tune actually is. Who knew, eh?
