Burlesque troupe swaps the genders in 'Blurred Lines'

Posted on

Robin Thicke Blurred Lines

There has been rendition after rendition, but this time, Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” gets a visual do-over as well. Seattle-based boylesque troupe (seriously, how great is the word “boylesque”?) decided to parody the hit song, even redoing the music video so that beautiful, strong women are singing and rapping while some boys with very little clothing prance around them.

On their YouTube page, the troupe said that they wanted “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.”

I must say, the song and video works incredibly well with the whole gender-swap. Check out the video below:
