On shooting with fully naked women:

On Treats! inspiring “Blurred Lines” video:
“When I was talking to my wife and her friends about the video they said, “Do something like Treats! because you love it so much. I wanted to give homage where homage was due. We wanted to pay it all forwards about our inspiration from Treats! for the “Blurred Lines” video.”
On the infamous banned music video:
“All three guys in the video are married and have children… It was all tongue-in-cheek… We wanted to put everything in that was taboo. Bestiality, drug injections, etc. In fact, after the video was banned on YouTube my wife tweeted, “Violence is ugly. Nudity is beautiful. And the “Blurred Lines” video makes me wanna…” We wanted it to be as silly and fun as possible. “
