Thought Blurred Lines was sexist? Try it this way
23 July 2013 02:43 PM
The video for Robin Thicke's number one single 'Blurred Lines' was booted off YouTube for its explicit content - lots of naked ladies, a few fully-clothed men - and attracted a fair amount of criticism online for what looked like common or garden visual misogyny, with some dodgy lyrics thrown in to boot. VICE's Bertie Brandes called it "ugly sexist bull**** dressed up as naughtiness". Now the video has been reworked, with the genders flipped. The result, we think, is jazzy and refreshing: take a look.
