"Blurred Lines" Parody Videos Abound On The Internet

The video for Robin Thicke's song "Blurred Lines" has been the subject of much controversy of late. And you can see why — lyrics like "I know you wanna" and a bunch of nude girls dancing with fully-clothed men certainly invites a discussion about rape culture, gender roles, and everyday sexism. But one other thing has also been spawned from this eye-popping (and very NSFW) video: parodies. Many parodies. Many hilarious parodies. Check the above for reference, and then continue on. You're gonna like what you see.

Who knew something so innocent as Full House could benefit from the inclusion of such a dirty, innuendo-filled song? And yet, somehow, it works.

This syncs up with the video so well, for a minute there, we were convinced this actually was the intro song to The Cosby Show and that Robin Thicke had simply been plagiarizing the whole time.

And last but not least, Funny or Die turns the video on its head in a way that's both hilarious and revealing of the inherently sexist dynamics of the original.
