This parody of Robin Thicke’s controversial hit “Blurred Lines” is by far the best-Simply because it turns the tables on the original song.
The video is made by three Auckland University law students (Zoe Ellwood, Olivia Lubbock and Adelaide Dunn) is aptly titled “Defined Lines.” The bare-chested males in submissive poses have replaced the topless female models from the original video.
The song has more than 1,500,000 hits on YouTube.
As if the original song wasn’t bad enough, with innuendos and humiliating roles of female models, Miley Cyrus’ MTV debacle has given it further disrepute.
This parody therefore is aptly timed.
It is indeed a punchy answer to the female stereotypes common in music videos as well as commercial entertainment.
