The band Walk Off The Earth (WOTE) posted their Gotye cover song “Somebody That I Used to Know” on January 5th, 2012 to You Tube. I remember when vividly when their sensational You Tube video of five musicians playing one guitar went viral on Facebook like nothing I’d seen before. They had over 9 million hits in a week, were flown onto the Ellen Show for an appearance and today are being played on every station I listen to. As of February 22nd, 2012 they now have 59, 015, 106 views on their You Tube video and they are still making rounds through Facebook today.
It took hard work and patience to build up their skill sets but when it came to being creative to launch their talent, they did it with resourcefulness and hit a home run. Their launch didn’t cost a dime and they skyrocketed through the music scene like a shooting star. Another example of a creative triumph launched with limited resources and a lot of love.
Take a look at their video here:
