It’s no secret that Robin Thicke’s controversial song Blurred Lines has been labelled by some as sexist even though the singer himself has denied it and even called the song a ‘feminist movement in itself’ (
ya, even i eye-rolled that comment). The music video features plenty of female nudity and accompanied by the suggestive lyrics it’s easy to see why people think it overtly objectifies women. Well a group of New Zealand law students have repsonded and created a feminist parody of Blurred Lines and it’s getting plenty of attention. Well with lyrics like ‘What you see on tv, Doesn’t speak equality, It’s straight up misogyny. Don’t want you to come on my face” it’s not hard to see why.
It took the 22 year old students just 5 hours of filming and a day of editing to complete and already has nearly half a million views.
Well played Kiwi ladies.
