That’s Not A Blurred Line, It’s A Double Standard

You’ve seen Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” video, right? The one with the gorgeous nekkid ladies and unique mish-mash of sexism, empowerment, playfulness and rapeyness? I love it, although parts of it squick me out (can we please, PLEASE stop calling women “bitches”?).

Anyway, some awesome law students at Auckland University made a parody video called “Defined Lines” that’s fucking excellent. PROBLEM: YouTube pulled it for sexual content. Whaaaaaa? Isn’t that a double standard? BUT WAIT! YouTube realized they fucked up¬†and put it back. Phew!

And here it is! Enjoy.

  1. Just the descriptions of the original are enough to put me off watching it, but this one turned out to be great. Would love to someday see a full “making of” article.
