Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' naked ladies get replaced by Seattle dudes

In case you haven't heard one of the (debatably) catchiest songs of the summer, then take a four-minute and 32-second break to listen to "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke.

It currently tops the Billboard Hot 100 and its video featuring nude models caused a lot of noise when the NSFW original cut got banned from YouTube.

But in Seattle, Mod Carousel, a Seattle-based "boylesque" troupe, has created their own parody of the video.

From the Mod Carousel YouTube page:

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.

YouTube warns that some users might find this content offensive
