Hyperbubble is here to peppily pluck at our heartstrings — and Dolly Parton is apparently a fan.

Back in November, Parton tweeted that she wanted to hear cover versions of her iconic heartbreaker "Jolene" as part of the #JoleneChallenge, a social media tie-in to promote her new Netflix series Heartstrings.

Hyperbubble was one of thousands who answered the call with their take on the song:

After some negotiations with Netflix and Parton's team and a cryptic Instagram post, Hyperbubble has finally, officially announced that its version of "Jolene" was selected as one of 16 versions included in Netflix's "Best-Of" compilation video. You can catch member Jeff DeCuir's "two seconds of fame" at 0:28.

Curious to hear the rest? Check out the full compilation below.
