Robin Thicke's "Feel Good" Video Is a Parade of Things He Thinks Ladies Like
Ladies, Robin Thicke wants you to "Feel Good" about him again, so he's got this new music video in which he gives you everything you've ever dreamed of. He knows you ladies (see: valuable music-loving demographic making up 50.8 percent of the U.S. population) have shied away from him since his "Blurred Lines" music video objectified naked, prancing models and lulled the nation into poppy submission despite its questionable lyrics. He knows you were mad when he called that song "a feminist movement." He knows that grabbing that girl's hiney at a club hours after accepting Miley Cyrus' twerks at the VMAs was detrimental to his image. And he knows that his Elle interview just convinced us he gets it all very honestly.
But he wants us back, ladies. He needs to get back in our good graces. And how might he do that after offending us for an entire summer and the event-bereft wasteland between August 31 and Halloween? By creating a video with so much lady bait that we can't help but throw our hard-earned dollars at him while screaming, "Yes, Robin! It does feel good and I don't find this song to be unnecessarily sexual in any way!"
And because he's so on-point, we must celebrate that "fact" by highlighting all the ways Thicke has just proved he really, truly understands women. But first, the video:
Did you catch all that? It's okay, we captured it all for you:
