You see, it’s not just the song’s catchy hook, the suave lead singer or the fact that it features the one and only Pharrell Williams that has made this song a runaway hit.
The controversial uncensored version of the music video for ‘Blurred Lines’ has sent this song into the stratosphere! Click HERE If you want to check out the uncensored version of the music video that’s got tongues wagging. (Be warned – it’s explicit!)
Unsurprisingly, the racy unrated version of the music video has received plenty of buzz thanks to its risqué content including everything from almost naked models to beastiality references!
Robin Thicke was interviewed recently about the provocative choices in the video and he admitted, “I just wanted to break every rule of things you’re not supposed to do [in a music video].”
Speaking of the inclusion of topless models Robin said, “[The director] told me, ‘I have this idea to do like a Terry Richardson kind of a video, a shoot with the girls being naked.’ And I was like, ‘Hey, you know, let’s go for it.’”
As for that moment when he gets hit in the face with a foot, Robin explains, “I was using [her foot] as a microphone, and [director] Diane Martel screamed out, ‘Slap him in the face with your foot!’ That was the energy of the video: Let’s have a bunch of props, let’s take the girls clothes off, and let’s just take some chances.’”
And finally – what’s with the animals?! “There’s a lamb. It’s a baby goat. (Laughs) There’s a lamb and a taxidermist dog (laughs), and sausage links. We pretty much wanted to take all the taboos of what you’re not supposed to do —bestiality, you know, injecting a girl in her bum with a 5 foot syringe— I just wanted to break every rule of things you’re not supposed to do and make people realize how silly some of these rules are,” said Robin.
With the song sitting pretty at number one on the ARIA chart and not looking like it’s moving anywhere anytime soon, we felt it was time to check out the top 3 parodies Of Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’. #Hilarious.
1. Sophie Monk and Jules on The Fifi and Jules Show
Sophie Monk and Jules flipped things around in their version of ‘Blurred Lines’ starring Sophie Monk in the lead role surrounded by a bunch of practically naked guys. Don’t get too excited – these flabby, hairy blokes should probably have kept their clothes on…
2. Fair Lawn Senior Center Remake
The unrated version of ‘Blurred Lines’ is recommended for “mature audiences” – but what if there was a version of the song made BY a mature audience?! Think: nursing home meets Robin Thicke. Love. It.
3. #HungryGirl ‘Blurred Lines’ ventures into Masterchef territor in Aja Dang’s sexy dessert version of the video. It’s so sweet it’ll give you a tooth ache.
