Every band has done a cover once or twice in its professional life, but it’s never been done like this before.
Based in Canada, Walk Off the Earth has shared an unbelievable cover of Adele’s hit, “Hello.” They don’t just play guitars and sing, oh no, that would be too simple. For Walk Off the Earth, they need to challenge and surprise, and with this cover that’s exactly what they do, complete with some high kicks, a surf board and even a couple of tap dancers.
The song begins with band members spinning colourful whirly tubes that make noise when they’re spun.
Before you know it, one member starts crooning in a raspy voice, with two others on either side of him pulling the zips on their pants up and down while thumping their hands on their legs, making for a pretty interesting base line.
The band is well-known for doing covers, with their rendition of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” receiving an incredible 25 million views on YouTube in under two weeks.
It’s clear that “Hello” has become just as popular, with many people saying it’s actually better than Adele’s version.
“Enjoyed this version more than the original one! Love the vibes and wow, those moves and amazing voices,” one fan, Victoria Merzaya, said.
Another fan has even been inspired to take up music after watching the clip.
“At the age of 44 you guys have inspired me to pick up an instrument, my twin daughters are happy as they are both talented musicians thank you and hope to see you when you come to the UK,” Jason Callaghan said.
Take a look at the cover below and tell me it isn’t the best darned cover you’ve ever seen in your life.
