Finally! A version of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” that we can get behind. The Seattle-based “boylesque” troupe Mod Carousel has released a video of Thicke’s brow raising mega-hit in which he, T.I. and Pharrell wildly objectify a bevy of nude women.

Mod Carousel’s version of song that repeats “You know you want it,” over and over turns gender on its head. Here’s what the troupe had to say about making the video, according to Jezebel:

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.
