If you don’t know who Robin Thicke is, you’ve clearly shut yourself off from all radio, television and Internet access this summer. The 36-year-old singer’s hit song "Blurred Lines" has spent a whopping 11 weeks in the top spot of the Billboard Top 100, holds the record for the most radio listeners, like, ever and has hit No. 1 in more than 100 countries.
He also performed at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards. He was the handsome guy in the Beetlejuice-style black and white striped suit being manhandled on stage by Miley Cyrus and a foam finger.
Now he has a new video out for "Give It 2 U" (watch below) that features an interesting sidekick -- his 3-year-old son, Julian. The adorable blonde boy is dressed like a mini-me version of his dad, wearing a black suit and gold whistle and showing off seriously styled hair.
Of course, you'll have to sit through the usual Robin Thicke fare before catching glimpses of his kiddo. Think twerking female dancers (can twerking just go away now, please?) clad in football pads paired with tiny boy shorts, Flo Jo-style bodysuits and costumes made out of cotton candy. The Miley Cyrus foam finger and Beetlejuice suit also make appearances and, not for nothing, Thicke is occasionally shirtless. Oh, and there's a streaker.
Weird place for the singer’s cute kid to make his debut? For sure. But, maybe not as bizarre as watching Champagne bottle mascots dance or rapper Kendrick Lamar ride onto the field in a mini monster truck.
And yet despite all that, Julian manages steals the show in the few seconds he's on screen. In fact, next time, we think Robin Thicke should leave out the scantily clad women and just let his kid do the dancing. Let’s just hope he doesn’t ask Miley to choreograph.
