"Somebody That I Used to Know" has become a huge world-wide hit that has made Gotye a household name. Like with anything hugely popular, the song has found itself the subject of numerous covers, parodies, and cute-kids-in-the-backseat lip-syncing videos from well-established artists, up-and-comers, and popular TV shows. The sports world has even jumped on the band wagon, re-working the song to share thoughts on Kobe Bryant's play, and now to pay tribute to former (that's still weird to say) Indianapolis Colts quarterback, Peyton Manning.

Starring comedians Russell Groves and Lizabeth Walters playing the parts of Gotye and Kimbra Johnson, respectively, the song begins with a bare-chested Groves professing his love for Manning with lines like:

You can get addicted to a certain kind of success
Like every game was a win, always a win
So when I heard we had let you go
Faith in my team was at an all-time low
But I’ll admit the statement you read made me cry

Then it's Walters turn. Painted in Broncos blue and orange and wearing black tape under her eyes with "John 3:16" written on it, she sings a tribute to the departed Tim Tebow with lines such as:

Now and then I think of all the games you screwed us over
Part of me not caring ’cause of all the games you had won
But Elway didn’t wanna play that way
Scoring six points every single game
The fans didn’t want to let you go
But a four time MVP made you some QB that we used to know

Overall, it's a well done video and good for a chuckle or two especially for Colts fans like myself.
