Check out Mod Carousel's (a Seattle based boylesque troupe) reinvention of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines". 

The troupe rewrote the lyrics, re-recorded the song and redid the video with all the genders swapped. They released a statement about reinventing the song.

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 does 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.

The results are delightful. Watch the video below.
