Our buddy Baracksdubs is at it again, this time with a parody of one of the most talked-about music videos of the year: Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines.” Watch Bill Clinton “sing” the hit song, then check out four other “Blurred Lines” parodies that we can’t stop watching.
Bill Clinton’s wife (and perhaps the next President?) doesn’t want any blurred lines when it comes to voting in America. The Supreme Court threw out a key part of the civil rights-era Voting Rights Act in June — the requirement that (mostly Southern) states with a history of voter discrimination get Washington’s approval before changing voting procedures. Hillary Clinton is one of many people speaking out against this political move, stating that it could make voting more difficult for minorities and people from underserved communities.
+ Watch Sexy Boys Get Mostly Naked.
Critics of Robin Thicke’s uncensored “Blurred Lines” video think there should have been fewer … blurred lines about what the vid + accompanying lyrics were all about. We hear that, which is why we’re lovin’ this parody by Mod Carousel, a Seattle based boylesque troupe. Mod Carousel flipped the whole misogyny (SAT vocab word of the day) thing on its head, and shot a video with a woman surrounded by half-naked men in heels. As Jay Z would say, “Ladies is pimps too.”
If you’ve ever wondered what your hipster friends will look like in 50 years, look no further. The residents of Fair Lawn Senior Center break it down in this video! Grandparents deserve to have just as much fun as we do, which is why Do Something’s Grandparents Gone Wired encourages young people to teach their elders to use the Internet. With only 53% of seniors actively engaging on the Internet, many are left feeling disconnected from their friends and loved ones in today’s tech-heavy society. Teach your grandparents to use Facebook, Skype or even just email, so that they can better keep in touch with you. Just remember to change your privacy settings if you don’t want your Nana seeing pictures of you twerking in a handstand.
+ Watch Jimmy Kimmel Get Nasty.
We can always count on Jimmy Kimmel for a funny parody video. And when it comes to “Blurred Lines,” Jimmy’s all about making sure there are none between the fortunate and the homeless. He’ll soon be hosting the “Kobe Up Close” charity event to raise funds towards helping the Los Angeles homeless community. The event will feature the pro-basketballer sharing stories about his life and career, and tickets range from $25 to $200.
If it were up to us, there would be a lot more puppet parodies out there! Which is why we love the Child Abuse Prevention Program, which is all about using puppets to get their message across. The org’s award-winning Child Safety Workshop makes sure that children are able to stand up for themselves when it comes to recognizing and resisting abuse. Their fun yet informative puppet shows have educated 420,000 children to date!
