Cody Simpson Covers Jack Johnson's 'Bubble Toes' (VIDEO)

Original Song: "Bubble Toes" by Jack Johnson

Cover Artist: Cody Simpson

How It's Different: Sporting a light blue Hawaiian shirt, it's clear that Cody is channeling Jack Johnson in more ways than one. Playing an acoustic guitar, the singer stayed mostly true to the original, keeping the simple song playful and fun. We can appreciate that Cody didn't change up the fan-favorite too much because at the end of the day, if it ain't broke, don't it fix, right?

Why We Love It: It's always cool to hear a young artist take on their idol (Cody mentioned that he grew up listening to Jack), but it's even cooler when they do them justice. We have a feeling that Jack would be proud.

Better Than The Original? Since both versions are so similar, it's tough to pick the better one. To be honest, we'd be totally happy to chill out on a beach listening to Jack or Cody. With that said, it's a tie!
