2. Love this version of this song - beautiful delivery! Walk off the Earth and Sarah Blackwood perform a cover of Gotye's "Somebody that I used to know" using five people on one guitar.
3. Ok the bio for this awesome video - "Here is a short footage on our recent work on quantum levitation. We were inspired by the game Wipe'out to do our work. With this new technology, we hope to revolutionize the world of motor transport; Maybe in a near future we could assist to a real Wipe'out race." The questions is FAKE OR REAL? What do you think?
