Reason TV Remix Has Anthony Weiner Singing ‘Blurred Junk’

You knew it was coming. Replace Robin Thicke in the music video for “Blurred Lines” with some dancing Anthony Weiner doppelganger and you’ve got the NYC must-remix of this summer’s infectious hit.

The magazine enlisted the help of GoRemy (a.k.a. Remy Munasfi) and easily, for our money, the best line in this “Blurred Junk” version reads as follows – “Not since Chilean miners, were rescued fast; have people been so happy, seeing the top of a shaaaaaaft.” The oversized hashtag #PRICKE ain’t too shabby either.

The only production-value downside here is that unlike the original Thicke video, there are no colorful female sidekicks. No dancing Huma, no scolding Olivia. Still, good job Reason gang. It’s got that same retro-Marvin Gaye “Sexual Healing” beat, for a sad situation that is beyond healing.
