Parody of the day. Robin Thicke "Blurred Lines" Sexy Boys Parody by Mod Carousel.


Mod Carousel, a Seattle based boylesque troupe, does a sexy parody of Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines music video.

It's our opinion that most attempts to show female objectification in the media by swapping the genders serve more to ridicule the male body than to highlight the extent to which women get objectified and do everyone a disservice. We made this video specifically to show a spectrum of sexuality as well as present both women and men in a positive light, one where objectifying men is more than alright and where women can be strong and sexy without negative repercussions.

*We got a free download link attached to our site now so you can listen to the song to your hearts content: *

Robin Thicke: Caela Bailey ( (Twitter: MissCaela206)
Pharrell: Sydni Deveraux (
T.I.: Dalisha Phillips

Mod Carousel Boys:

Paris Original (

All vocals are by Caela Bailey with the exception of the rap section which was written and performed by Dalisha Phillips.
