"Somebody I Used to Know" has become a viral sensation! From poster memes, to Youtube parodies, click through to see the wittiest and funniest ones here.
'NOW YOU'RE JUST SOME COUNTRY THAT I USED TO OWN'
The Queen did her very best 'do not want' face during the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics which naturally led to a flurry of memes. Unsurprisingly Her Majesty got the full Gotye treatment in this genius version of the meme.
The perfect song you want blasting out of your car speakers to vent your road rage.
Gotye's showstopping live performance on American comedy show, Saturday Night Live, boosted his profile stateside. But even better was the hilarious 'nude' skit performed by SNL regulars Andy Samberg and Tarren Williams where they parodied the distinctive body-paint backdrop of the "Somebody I Used to Know" video clip.
Glee's Darren Criss and guest star Matt Bomer did a cover version on the show that was widely panned by everyone, including Gotye himself. Like many songs the show covers, their version adapted to suit the 'estranged-brothers-reuniting' storyline ruffled a few feathers of those die hard fans who love the original.

says James Franco's famous severed limb in '127 Hours'. A mash-up of two zeitgeisty references- pop culture nerds everywhere go wild!
Sick of hearing Gotye's earworm of a song? Best not to follow Van Gogh in that case.
You can lean on Arnold from 'Hey Arnold' when times get tough.
Gotye probably does this 'money shower'. He earnt over $1 million last year.
A lament to crewing.
Oh no you've really got the knead if you want a good loaf.
Give Hans a hand-up?
Ice-cream.Yum. Scoop away.
Is Gotye as motivational as the Rocky soundtrack?
All those times you had those brushes with the law
You wail as you fly off the cliff edge.
So true. Looks like Gotye and Kimbra themselves are enjoying sadwich heaven.
The perfect song for Facebook de-friending.
Easter is always a time of sad farewells.
In that condition, maybe you should be benched.
You can't keep dodging your canine friends
Haircuts can be traumatic.
