July 24 (UPI) -- A parody gender-reversed video to Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" was posted on YouTube Sunday.

The clip was produced by Mod Carusel, a Seattle based "boylesque troupe," to "show a spectrum of sexuality as well as present both women and men in a positive light, one where objectifying men is more than alright and where women can be strong and sexy without negative repercussions."

Thicke's No. 1 hit has faced severe criticism for its "rapey" lyrics and controversial video. However, the polemic surrounding the track has not kept the song from remaining at the top of Billboard's U.S. chart for six straight weeks.

In an interview with VH1, Thicke said that controversy was a fair price to pay for fun.

"We pretty much wanted to take all the taboos of what you're not supposed to do," he said of the song racy video. "Bestiality, you know, injecting a girl in her bum with a five-foot syringe -- I just wanted to break every rule of things you're not supposed to do and make people realize how silly some of these rules are."

Thicke's video for "Blurred Lines" features three models dancing in nothing but heels and a nude thong while Thicke, T.I. and Pharrell sing in suits. The parody video, which also alters the lyrics of the song, features three male models also dancing in heels and nude thongs while three women sing in suits.
