Indie pop artist Gotye shows his vulnerable side in the music video for the hit breakup anthem “Somebody That I Used to Know.” A naked Gotye is pictured as he slowly begins to be covered in body paint. He is later joined by a nude Kimbra, who also gets painted up like Gotye. The duo gets colored in fragmented shapes, comes together for a short time and then falls apart just as quickly. The paint on Kimbra washes away at the end of the video as they go their separate ways.
Watch the artistically animated video filled with trippy slow-motion cinematography below:
