‘Defined Lines’ Is The Robin Thicke ‘Blurred Lines’ Parody That Trumps All Others

Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” may have been unofficially declared one of the songs of the summer, but we’re happy to end the season with this amazing parody of the decidedly sexist hit.

In response to the criticism surrounding “Blurred Lines,” an Auckland University student group, the Law Revue Girls, created “Defined Lines.” The parody reverses the original video’s gender roles in an attempt to “define those supposedly ‘blurred lines'” and declares: “What you see on TV / Doesn’t speak equality / It’s straight up misogyny.” We could not love it more.

“The message really is just that we think that women should be treated equally, and as part of that, we’re trying to address the culture of objectifying women in music videos,” Olivia Lubbock, one of the women featured in the video, told the AAP.

The Independent reported that “Defined Lines” was removed from YouTube briefly on Monday after being flagged for “inappropriate” sexual content, but has since been restored. Lubbock called the video’s removal a “massive double standard,” since the models in Thicke’s original video are arguably far more sexualized.

“It’s just funny that the response has been so negative when you flip it around and objectify males,” Lubbock told the AAP.

We’re glad YouTube put “Defined Lines” back up. This is one music video the masses should see.
