“The Ocean We Want To Know" Music Video Parodies Gotye for World Oceans Day

One World One Ocean has come up with this great little music video, a parody of Gotye's famous "Somebody That I Used To Know" song. This new take on the tune encourages exploration of our oceans, which are largely a mystery.

"The video takes Mitzi and Ferdie from their home in Yosemite to places around the world before returning home to tell their friends about the adventure and all they've learned.

Check out the interesting facts written in to the video, as well as the fun lyrics:

You and I should take a little trip together
Down the coast where the underwater forest grows
Every river will eventually end up flowing down into the sea
It's our ocean and it's time we get to know it

Shoot on over to the deepest trench
Darkened caverns where only three people've ever been
On to where the largest coral grows
Things about the ocean that we want to know

Head down south where the water is much cooler
Take a walk with a penguin 'cause they can't fly
Travel up to the Sargasso Sea, the ocean's nursery made of gold algae
Baby tunas and turtles growing in the weeds

From Bermuda up to the Arctic Circle
See the polar bears leaping from floe to floe

Through the Northwest Passage tide
We'll let belugas be our guide
Soon we're gonna be back home
With a new appreciation for the ocean that we want to know!

Vibrant murals of coral reefs
Joyful creatures embracing the living sea
Humpback whales hum soothing symphonies
Dreaming of the ocean that we want to know
