The five members of Walk Off the Earth have a knack for reimagining some of today’s most popular songs.

First they tackled Gotye’s monster pop/rock hit “Somebody That I Used To Know” using five hands and only one guitar, which has earned them over 143 million views.

Now they’re recreating the synth sounds of Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” with just their mouths.

Going a cappella, the Canadian group masters every one of the song’s electronic elements and manages to even throw in a little nod to “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.”

The band, which released its EP of all original music, R.E.V.O., last year, also enlisted a little help from KRNFX, who offers up a bit of beatboxing to help really get that dubstep feel Tay was going for. In just a few days, the already garnered over 1 million views.

So what do you think? Did Walk Off the Earth get it right, or should they never ever perform this one again? Like, ever?
