I'm surprised it took this long, but there's finally a great feminist parody of Robin Thicke's rapey hit "Blurred Lines." This version, performed by an Aukland, New Zealand group of law students, turns the tables on the runaway hit that seems to "blur the lines" mostly between consensual and non-consensual sex.

Thicke's sexist video includes topless women dancing provocatively next to the singer, an abundance of hashtags like #Thicke, and a background that says "Robin Thicke has a big dick." The parody version also uses plenty of hashtags, but ditches the narcissism in favor of social responsibility.

The original Robin Thicke version is after the break. It's likely not safe for work.
