Since its official debut on April 19, Daft Punk’s disco-infused “Get Lucky” has rocketed up the charts and presently sits at No. 14 on Billboard’s Hot 100. With a catchy chorus sung by Pharrell Williams, the song has recently become fodder for a myriad parodies and mash-ups, barnyard animals not excluded.
The latest take on the soon-to-be dance classic comes in the form of a screaming goat tribute, thanks to the Aveoctavus, a self-proclaimed “YouTube Recycler.”
While some YouTube commentors have noted “Goat Lucky” as “blasphemous,” others can’t get enough of the clip calling it, “so f***ing funny! And I am a huge Daft Punk fan!”
The trend of overdubbing lyrics with goat screams began shortly after a screaming goat compilation was unearthed and posted to YouTube. The bizarre clip showcased several goats whose calls sounded eerily human. Music videos featuring the goats appeared online virtually overnight. The most popular of which was “I knew You Were A Goat When You Walked In,” a parody of Taylor Swift’s smash hit, “I Knew You Were Trouble When You Walked In.”
Daft Punk’s fourth album, Random Access Memories, is set for release May 21 in the U.S.
