Gotye on SNL

With its nudity and way-cool stop-motion body-paint-as-camo animation, Gotye's video for "Somebody That I Used to Know" is ripe for parody.
GOTYE WEIRDS IT UP WITH SNL
Usually, you can count on Weird Al for such pop-culture skewer jobs, but on last night's episode of Saturday Night Live, Andy Samberg and Taran Killam beat him to it, stripping down and painting up in the presence of Gotye himself, who served as musical guest.In the sketch, Samberg and Killam -- clothed, at first -- venture into the singer's dressing room and tell him how much they love his music. He's flattered, but when they return later fully naked, their bodies decorated with the colorful abstract-art shapes seen in the video, he gets a little freaked out."We're like you," Samberg says. "Get it?""It's weird, guys," Gotye responds.
