In the parody video, the Seattle 'boylesque' group members impersonate topless females while three female singers replace original vocalists Thicke, Pharrell Williams and T.I..
Seattle "boylesque" group Mod Carousel has parodied Robin Thicke's controversial music video of "Blurred Lines". The male group modified the lyrics, rerecorded the vocals and redid the music video with all the genders swapped.
In the video posted on their YouTube channel, the boys are seen playing the three topless models in the original version of "Blurred Lines". Female singers Caela Bailey, Sydni Devereaux and Dalisha Philips fill in for Thicke, Pharrell Williams and T.I., respectively.
"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," the male group said of their music video parody.
"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," they added.
Mod Carousel is not the only group that has spoofed Thicke's music video. A parody video entitled "Blurring Pains" recently hit YouTube. The video stars Thicke's dad, Alan Thicke, who is famous for depicting Dr. Jason Seaver on 1985 TV series "Growing Pain".
