RED HANDS by Walk Off the Earth is music video goodness

So I heard this song on the radio about 5,092 gazillion times, and still liked it, and wondered, “Who’s singing a duet with the lead singer of Aerosmith, who has to be 94 years old by now?”

But it’s not Aerosmith; it’s a band called Walk Off the Earth, and I instantly recognized them for something else. Hold that thought.

Here’s the video:

So where had I heard them before? Hadn’t. I’d seen them before, doing an incredible cover of Gotye with all five band members singing different parts while playing the SAME GUITAR.

Brilliant.  It must have taken days of practice and a zillion retakes to get this in one shot.

  2. This is why we need you, Guy—to find amazing clips we would never stumble upon. Thanks for turning us on to another fantastic performance. Wild.

  3. I like how they edit the super quick montages like punctuation on the beat and then slow down for the lyric. The music is already strong but the editing moves it to another level.

  4. I think they should contribute to the soundtrack for next season’s Game of Thrones.
