Music Video: Hilarious parody of Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines (NSFW)

Posted by Liv Siddall,

After nearly 100% of female viewers became angry in one way or another after watching Robin Thicke’s video for Blurred Lines (despite it being directed by a woman) there’s now reams of fantastic parody videos to ridicule it even more than it has been already.. Good old internet. Powerful burlesque group Mod Carousel from Seattle have created their own version of the video in which the tables are satisfyingly turned, leaving the men as gormless, naked playthings under the control of the women.

This video isn’t just generally more entertaining than the original, it’s actually sung better by lead singer Caela Bailey, and the men in it are great! How refreshing to see women and men being funny together in one video. See? It’s not rocket science. Highlights include the toe-pointing at 3:20 and the “sex balls” wall hanging. Genius!
