This is way too cool. I don’t know if you’ve seen the original Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger parodies Daft Hands and Daft Bodies (say hello to the people you’ve been living under a rock with), but this is an awesome take on it by tehcubedude. Love it.
Just as a side note, being the gay boy I am, I chanced upon this while looking up the other videos. Why did I not see it before? Yum yum.
Sure, it’s a bit “much” – its a bit in-your-face, it’s a bit explicit, it’s a bit “angry”. But you know what? That seems like an all-around appropriate reaction to the ridiculous and blatant misogyny that is the Blurred Lines video.
These New Zealand university ladies are revealing just how inappropriate the Blurred Lines video was by being just as inappropriate. I applaud them for their effort. They’re gonna be called nazi feminists. They’re going to be accused of overreacting. But they did it anyway because the truth is they’re doing what feminists have been fighting for this whole time: they’re speaking up and giving the woman a voice in the face of normalised misogyny.
There are many times I’ve been proud to call myself a (sort of) kiwi. This is definitely another one of those times.
See the video here (because it seems it was taken down from YouTube).
