Back when the "Blurred Lines" music video first premiered, we wondered how long it would take for some enterprising feminists to make a gender-flipped version of Robin Thicke's clothed-men-naked-women classic. The answer turned out to be not very long at all: Only three and a half months!
Seattle-based "boylesque" group Mod Carousel is the brains behind the video, and they've got mincing down. As they explain on their YouTube page:
It's our opinion that most attempts to show female objectification in the media by swapping the genders serve more to ridicule the male body than to highlight the extent to which women get objectified and does everyone a disservice. We made this video specifically to show a spectrum of sexuality as well as present both women and men in a positive light, one where objectifying men is more than alright and where women can be strong and sexy without negative repercussions.
"Blurred Lines" parodies: We know you want them.
