Say what you will about Miley Cyrus and headscratching antics of late, but the woman will have our eternal gratitude for at least one thing: Getting cute straight guys to get naked and swing from balls.
We first noticed the epidemic of bare-skin ball riders when a “Wrecking Ball” homage video starring underwear model Bryan Hawn surfaced earlier this week.
Then came news that Grand Valley State University in Michigan was removing a pendulum sculpture from its quad because too many students were re-enacting the video.
We like what we see of BBC DJ (and Ellie Goulding ex) Greg James, but the lipstick is giving us a Silence of the Lambs vibe. (Fortunately we can dial down the saturation and it looks like black and white.)
This one, from Froese ‘n Cons, has a lot of heart but it’s missing two key elements for a good “Wrecking Ball” homage clip: A wrecking ball and full male nudity. Kinda core requirements, guys.
