Defined Lines: Robin Thicke "Blurred Lines" Parody Turns Tables, Goes Viral

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" may be the song of the summer, but a parody called "Defined Lines" gives it a run for its money - and turns the tables on the taboo track.

An Auckland University student group, the Law Revue Girls, created "Defined Lines" in response to the criticism to the song, which some say is decidedly sexist.

The parody attempts to "define the supposedly 'blurred lines'" and declares: "What you see on TV / Doesn't speak equality / It's straight up misogyny."

Robin, Pharrell and T.I.? You all just got served.

Olivia Lubbock, one of the women featured, said:

"The message really is that we think women should be treated equally, and as part of that, we're trying to address the culture of objectifying women in music videos."

Thicke's wife Paula Patton found it to be a huge turn-on (and we're guessing Lana Scolaro was a fan) but it certainly has its share of detractors.

Ironically, like "Blurred Lines," "Defined Lines" was banned from YouTube briefly on Monday after being flagged for "inappropriate" sexual content.

It has since been restored after Lubbock called the video's removal a "massive double standard," since the models in Thicke's video are equally sexualized.

"It's just funny that the response has been so negative when you flip it around and objectify males," she said, inviting people to watch and see for themselves.

Do as she requests, you won't regret it!
