With its racy lyrics and catchy beats, Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” has quickly become one of the biggest hits of the summer.
As expected, when a song breaks out, along comes the mock lyrics, mashups, spoofs and clever renditions. Two versions have recently hit the television and social media airwaves, each of which deserves high marks for its own various reasons.
First, there’s the rendition where Robin Thicke appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, performing the popular tune with Fallon and The Roots, all while using classroom instruments. Fallon has had performances like this one in the past, including one during the holidays with Mariah Carey, and each and every one of them has been nothing short of genius.
The other is a mashup that recently made its debut on YouTube (via @baracksdubs), featuring former President Bill Clinton singing the popular Robin Thicke hit. We all know the history on Clinton, so, well… yeah, you get the idea.
But which one is better? Well, let’s put that up to a vote, shall we? First, here are the clips:
