- TW: Partial Nudity, Explicit Lyrics, Sexual Content
Seattle boylesque troupe Mod Carousel created their own version of Robin Thicke’s controversial (and catchy) single “Blurred Lines”—they changed the lyrics, rerecorded the vocals, and restaged the video with all of the genders swapped. The result is pretty amazing. And I love their explanation of the philosophy behind the project:
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.
