I'm not even sure I like this song, but I can't get it out of my head, so clearly it's got something. But the video, the video. Robin Thicke comes across like a complete douchebag standing there all smug, Pharell comes off as very cute, and TI is disposable. It's also a very offensive video, but there are lots of those, so whatever.
That's the G-rated version. There's another version with (female) nudity.
I wonder what fundie prude Kirk Cameron thinks about this. Surely he and Robin knew each other back when Robin's dad was on Growing Pains.
I don't think Robin Thicke comes across as "a complete douchebag" at all and he does not appear smug in the video.
And I don't think the video is 'offensive'.
And yes, women want him and rightly so.
He is great looking, sexy, talented, and an excellent performer.
I adore Robin Thicke.
Love Robin Thicke! He's one of the few male artists making quality R&B music, and he's not afraid to have fun.
So overwhelmingly bland, boring and low-brow.
He's trying o hard to copy Justin Timberlake.
Actually r11, Justin Timberlake copied Robin Thicke. Thicke has been making music since the late 90s and his image was the same back then as it is now.
R11 knows very little about music if he thinks Justin Timberlake is the original anything. Very sad.
Robin Thicke. Well, is he?
Let's face it, anyone who hates this song hates life. It's the same as the people who complained about "Crazy in Love" 10 years ago. Dread to think what they'd be like at a party. Whether it's "lowbrow" is hardly the point, there is such a thing as fun you know.
I loved Crazy In Love, still love it. But I don't like this song.
My thoughts as I watched the uncensored version:
1) Robin Thicke has beautiful eyes. I wonder if they colored them in post?
2) Those girls look like complete morons clomping across the set like Paris Hilton.
3) This must be how straight guys would feel if they watched a Cazwell video.
Yeah, you sound like a lot of fun, R15. What a lemming.
I couldn't resist Crazy In Love but easily avoid this twaddle. The constant wearing of sunglasses indoors definitely qualifies Robin Thicke as a douche. Hiring a bunch of models to dance around you topless, even more so.
R18. All of the models probably had to scrape the donut glaze off their thongs after dancing around in front of him all day.
Wow, that comment was pretty nasty...r19.
The phrase "blurred lines" is not very alliterative or melodic, while like the rest of the lyrics are very much so. Sounds like they should have used different words there, and retitled the song altogether.
"Let's face it, anyone who hates this song hates life."
Let's face it, you're full of shit.
I think the song sucks. but I've always hated pop songs that basically just lift a sample from a classic tune and loop it over and over with a slightly different tempo or bass line. (in this case, don't stop).
The 2000's version of "Simply Irrisistable".
The song is okay by FM radio standards, but damn, that video is unbelievably weak and derivative.
Using random models in your video was old when George Michael did it in 1990. And mostly-naked models against a generic off-white background? Rèally? They couldn't think of anything else?
How about Robin Thicke naked, waving his ostensibly big dick around? Now that would at least have been worth censoring.

A least George used gorgeous supermodels, not flavor of the month, generic sticks with no charisma.

That would be gross. The models are not showing their crotches, just the breasts. Robin parading without a shirt on would be okay.
The same PC police who have the bloodhounds after Paula Deen are saying that this video is about rape.
