Watch two strapping Glee men cover Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”

Pin it

Did you guys know that Glee is still on the air? Unbelievable, I know, because that show has less characterization than a five-year old's picture book. But the iTunes juggernaut proceeds apace, and I keep watching it. Why, you ask? Well, two reasons: one, I am a theater queer at heart, and so I will watch anything that involves musicals, even tangentially. (That's why I'm suffering through Smash.) Two, Blaine, played by Darren Criss, is incredibly handsome, and I will watch him and his perfect bow-tie-adorned outfits from now until forever.

And now — probably because he sensed my increasing uncertainty about the show — Ryan Murphy has cast living Disney prince Matt Bomer as Blaine's older brother, Cooper Anderson. (Har har.) Then he had them sing a weirdly sexy song? I'm trying not to read too much into this rendition of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know," but there's a bit of an incest vibe, y/n?

Is it just because Bomer and Criss are so handsome I want to faint like a '60s schoolgirl meeting the Beatles? I admit that's a possibility, but it still seems like an odd choice for estranged brothers. Of course, it's a choice that worked: I'll definitely be tuning in next Tuesday.
