This video is an ASL interpretation of Gotye's "Somebody I Used To Know." An expression of ASL music composed by a team of Deaf and CODA (Child of Deaf Adult) members, including the crew and cast members.
The inspiration of this concept was to allow communities largely under served by music to experience the passion and emotion it conveys, most take for granted. It also serves to expose and raise awareness about ASL art and deaf culture to the world. It demonstrates how music cannot only be heard, but be seen as well, by giving the viewer an aural and visually rich experience simultaneously.
Music rights were not obtained for the material and this video is given to the public for entertainment and educational purposes only.
