If you can’t beat them, then join them. That’s exactly what the Seattle boylesque troupe Mod Carousel was thinking when they created their very own version of Robin Thicke’s controversial single “Blurred Lines.” The group tweaked the lyrics, recorded vocals and restaged the video with the gender roles reversed. Mod Carousel explained their reason behind the amazing parody 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.
