BLURRED LINES YIELD COMIC FINDS

THE INSPIRATION FOR MILEY CYRUS’ VMA PERSONA

Temecula, CA – Deciding to delve a little deeper inside the topic of the well written opinion piece by Summer Rain about Miley Cyrus, I found not only where she got her inspiration for the controversial performance from and saw more relevance to the Jon Lajoie rap song spoof, but found Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines inspired a number of parodies.

Presented now as part of a still trending story is the funniest parody I saw so far, Tanned Lines, and after the jump at your voluntary discretion, is Jimmy Kimmel’s effort, the original song video, and finally at the end, the unrated version. It is the last version that inspired Miley Cyrus, no doubt. Then listen to Lajoie’s lyrics again.
