“Blurred Lines” Gets Its First Great Mashup

As we’ve been chronicling on Brow Beat this summer, Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” has an iron grip on the top of the charts, but Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” has been the undisputed king of the Internet, getting a new a new remix or mashup or other viral video just about every day.

Perhaps that’s about to change. This just-posted mashup with the forever great Cosby Show credits is so perfect (especially when you stop and think about the original video), that it’s a wonder someone didn’t think of it already. It could be that this will be the first in a wave of #Thicke-inspired parodies and mashups, but this one will be hard to top.
