A Scanner Performs Gotye's ''Somebody That I Used to Know''

Gotye's 'Somebody That I Used to Know' has received a lot of air time as of late. First released in the summer of 2011, the song gained worldwide popularity thanks to a UK and U.S. release in later 2011/early 2012. Fast forward ten months and the song is still played very regularly on the radio, and numerous covers and remixes are available on YouTube. Still, what's one more?

The video below shows a version with an Amiga 600 Bass on left audio output and guitar on right audio output, two hard drives as the drums and cymbal, a xylophone, and an HP Scanjet 3C as the vocals. YouTuber bd594 explains that both the hard drives and xylophone are controlled by one PIC16F84A microcontroller and each audio channel was fed into an oscilloscope.
