Has Gotye jumped the shark?

Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know has taken “a curated reflection of multiple past relationships” and a sample of Baa Baa Black Sheep to the top of the charts across the globe, so it was perhaps inevitable that it would eventually end up on Glee.

In the upcoming episode Big Brother (that’s season 3 episode 15 for those of you keeping track) the characters Blaine and Cooper Anderson will perform the Gotye tune as a comment on their fractured relationship. The teaser clip for the episode features Darren Criss (Blaine Anderson) gushing that “We get to sing everyone’s favourite song” and his on screen bro Matt Bomer declaring “I love everything about it so to get the chance to record it was so special.”

Jump forward to the 46 second mark on the clip to hear their version:

Glee’s creator Ryan Murphy famously called Kings of Leon “self-centered assholes”, declared that Slash is “uneducated and quite stupid” and been called a “fucking jerk” by Dave Grohl; so we’re eagerly waiting to hear what Wally has to say about the cover. We’d also love to know what he thinks of the cover of his tune I Feel Better on Young Talent Time.
