In the above video, comic Eric Schwartz relays this painful information to Gotye himself (OK, a guy pretending to be Gotye) and then lays out his case in song: "I became addicted to it at first because it was magic," Schwartz sings. "Radio played it again and over again. I repainted my whole room like it, got a full-body tattoo of him. This song is much harder to ditch than a lover. But now it's time to turn it off. Never heard a song so catchy I had to break up with it. I with that I could keep it on, but they played it at my cousin Jacob's Bar Mitzvah." Later, Schwartz laments the fact that the song is also his grandmother's ringtone.
