You may remember a small Burlington-based band, Walk off the Earth from a 2012 viral video that featured five peeps and one guitar as they covered Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know”. Since then, the band has grown and has received tons of accolades including a Juno award in 2016.
With COVID-19 restrictions across Canada and much of the world, most Canada Day celebrations have been canceled; however, that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Canada Day at home with your family and friends! To help celebrate Canada Day in 2020, Walk off the Earth have done just that with an outdoor cookout featuring Canada’s favorite ketchup brand, French’s (sorry Heinz)!
Watch the amazing Canadian quartet, Walk off the earth perform “O Canada” to celebrate Canada Day…
Who could have known that bottles of French’s ketchup would make such great musical instruments!
