A Feminist Take on Pop-Hit “Blurred Lines” Hits the Web

Hey mankind, If you wanna get nasty, just don't harass me, you can't just grab me... thats a sex-crime..."

A parody of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” has started to spread around the web – this time it puts women on top and exposes the original version of the video for its misogynistic message: “Hey mankind, If you wanna get nasty, just don’t harass me, you can’t just grab me… that’s a sex-crime…” A group of female law students from New Zeland’s Auckland Law school got the project together and it paints an interesting picture for sure. Take a look below and let us know what you think.

 

And here are some details from the re-uploaded youtube video:

A group of Auckland law students are causing a stir with their tongue-in-cheek parody of Robin Thicke’s hit song ‘Blurred lines’.

They’ve released a feminist response to Thicke’s song which has drawn criticism for “blurring the lines” between consensual and non-consensual sex. The hit’s promo video also features topless models.

The parody is part of Auckland University’s law revue – a show of 40 skits performed at SkyCity Theatre last week

The song’s had almost 300,000 views since it was uploaded to YouTube on Friday night. The video has been removed from YouTube this morning.
