A long discussion happened on face book today, as it does everyday but this time I was an interested party.

Tee posted a question:

“Justin Timberlake or Robin Thicke?
And have you seen Robin’s Blurred Lines videos? Are you offended by it, haven’t seen it, watched it a million times?”

Innocuous enough, but as face book is often wont to do there were some differing views.  You can see the entire thread here it is public https://www.facebook.com/terresaburgess/posts/10201932243251311    Ok so that link wasn’t as “public” as I thought it was.  But I posted the entire conversation below.

I love differing views.

We started with JT versus Robin.  I am team JT because Robin’s voice totally makes me think of his dad Alan and that makes me think of Growing Pains and then I switch to Kirk Cameron and that makes me crabby because he has turned in to such a thumper.

But some mentioned they thought the unrated uncensored version of the video was disgusting and that it turned them off of the song but Desiree said I couldn’t quote her so I won’t but I will refer you again to the link up above the conversation below and you can read it for yourself.  LOL

I think the video is hilarious.  I love the tune and the innocuous dancing.  Are the flopping boobs pertinent to the song? No.  Neither is the goat or the hideous shoes.  But they work.

The rated video is ok.  The music is still the same there is no difference there.  I RARELY watch music videos, I was never a fan of MTV in the beginning (still am not) so it takes a lot to get me to watch one, especially more than once.  And now when I need a giggle I put this one on and watch.

Take a look for yourself, tell me what you think.

Oh btw disclosure there are naked boobs in the video, but at least this time they’re not mine. Bonus.

For the record.  JT totally won the poll.
