To be completely honest, I’ve never been a fan of Robin Thicke’s music but I’m putting his latest video for the song Blurred Lines up here not because it’s a particularly good or interesting bit of vocal talent but because it feels like every George Michael video off of his 1987 Faith album that made the chicks get all up in his acid washed jeans (Then again, it also gives a nod to Freedom ’90 from GM’s Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 album what with all the models traipsing around topless so maybe we should just assume the entire George Michael video catalog was an influence in Mr. Thicke’s creative decision).
Of course, in this particular homage, instead of supermodels lip-syncing to the lyrics, we just have a bunch of expressionless women walking back-and-forth across the screen with their boobs out and about while Thicke stares and paw at them for five minutes.
Hmmm…not quite as classy as George Michael my friend.
Which is something I never thought I would ever say in this lifetime.
