I want to see one with rabbits so that it can be called Somebunny that I Used to Know.

It was worth it for the last three seconds.

I figure there's a 50/50 chance this video survives, but it made me smile.

I hadn't seen the original, but was trying to figure out why it was soooo familiar. Fortunately, the related video links had me covered. I remember it from the Starwars version.

Heh, the Starwars one that pops up as related is pretty funny too.

It seems to be the original audio but with puppets. Well executed but it's been done before.

I am one of the two people who had not seen it! My girlfriend and I just watched the original and the puppet dub. Neat! Thanks for posting it.

Of the three, I prefer the Bad Lip Reading version: Kicked Your Monkey

I'd never seen or heard the original, thanks.

Also hadn't seen or heard of the original but am enjoying all the versions.

This is a fun version with some nice guitar work.

I was blown away and charmed by Gotye's remix of fan versions of the song, which was also the subject of a post a while back.

I'd missed that one, hippybear, and wow, do I love it. Thanks!

The OP I was a bit eh on until the "Kimbra" reveal. That cracked me right up. Excellent choice of puppet.

and for another layer: a parody of the one guitar cover.

Thanks guys, you made my day with the additional links. Mostly I am just a sucker for puppets.

Am I the only one bugged by the fact they used the wrong side of the body in the puppet version? I get why they had to do it, with the puppeteer probably being right-handed, but couldn't they have mirrored the video?

Also; Props to the star wars version, and I'm really glad to see Erock in the remix of all the fan versions. \m/
