It's very catchy, and I like Robin Thick's music, but I don't like the video

Just found out the brown haired girl in the vid is called Emily Ratajkowski. She is perfection <3

Looks even better in the uncensored version of the video

Its a bit creepy when you listen to the lyrics and see the video....like. I can see how it could turn people on, but, the guys are basically just telling the women what they like, for them. And like, how hot they are themselves. And, the fact the men are clearly rich and have money and are wearing clothes...and the women are next to naked and... I don't know. It makes me a bit uncomfortable. I'd like to like it but it weirds me, a bit.

Pharrell does the "hey hey hey" bits. He's mostly featured because he produced the song, sort of like how Timbaland produces and cowrittes a song and gets a little adlib in and is a featured artist.

Is that CONSTANT 'WHOOOOOH' a sample from Don't Stop Til You Get Enough? Sounds like it.

I feel like i'm missing something. I just find it oddly tedious and one of those songs that starts and just doesn't progress anywhere. I mean in comparision to past #1's its far superior bt still its just a bit meh. it's like Get Lucky great song but really doesn't warrent the amount of attention it got and Blurred Lines is the same.

its catchy and good but i have a feeling its only popular because of Pharrell's success with Get Lucky and now everything he touches will shoot up to the top of the worldwide charts...

Its not my favourite song of the year but it is a toe-tapper and the video is quite something...

It does sound like a Michael Jackson sample.

Similar beat to 'Give It To Me' by Madonna (ft Pharrell)

The song is cool but I LOVE the video... one of my favs of the year so far.... it's stylish, fun, sexy, naughty and very appealing to the eye.

The "Whooo" IS from the MJ sample. First time I listened to it around a month ago, it was the first thing I noticed. Also Pharrel and Robin Thicke have constantly said they were inspired by MJ, which is why a lot of their songs sound quite similar in terms of beats with MJ songs.

The song is MEH but the vid is downright CREEPY!

I know theyre supposed to be joking around, but theres an element of leering at women younger than them in it, and just general sleazing and letchiness.

Robin Thicke just comes across as smug and a bit of a tosser with the amount of posing he does.

Weird vid.

I get the impression that Pharrell is only on the track because of his recent career-reviving hit with Daft Punk and that's also largely why this one's a success.

I'm not saying it's a bad song though!
