Subverted Humps

Alanis_myhumpsThink Christian has a great post looking at the subversion of pop songs.

The main example they cite is “Humps” by The Black Eyed Peas, a song somewhat renowned for its sexually suggestive lyrics and video.

At the beginning of April Alanis Morissette released a parody of the song sung to a down tempo solo piano and with a knocking copy of the original “Humps” video.

The Think Christian post Subvert this song! considers the value and usefulness of this kind of countercultural statement.

Does it work? What do you think?
