Robin Thicke Sees ‘Blurred Lines’ in Video With Pharrell and T.I.
Robin Thicke‘s ‘Blurred Lines’ video is a bunch of awkward spontaneity, but isn’t that always where all the fun lies.
Long-time collaborator Pharrell Williams and rapper T.I. make an appearance in the video dressed up in tussled black blazers and pants while three ladies accompany them dressed in white. The one similarity: they all rock gold chains.
The video has props galore and many don’t seem really connected: dominoes, ice cream, bikes, cars and the spirits being poured (Remy Martin V, a drink Thicke has previously helped promote in the past).
The ladies in the video prance around while Thicke, Pharrell and T.I. bust loose with their best moves.
During the visual, they even try to jokingly reinterpret a line in the song. “You the hottest bitch in the place,” Thicke sings as he points at a dog one of the models holds. The song has a nice subtle bounce that samples Marvin Gaye‘s ’Got to Give It Up.’
We also couldn’t help but point out the not so subliminal ‘#THICKE’ hashtag that kept flashing across the screen in big bold red letters. Smart.
