Saturday Video

I would ordinarily never post a video like this here. Not only are the lyrics inexcusably misogynist, but they are repetitively banal. The group themselves (Prodigy) tried to deflect criticism by saying that they were really talking about being energetic and intense. Possibly, but I personally don't buy it.

The music video, I believe, was meant to speak to the song's detractors. My apologies for those of you who haven't seen the video, but suffice to say what we expect of our hedonistic main character is not what we are granted in the end. Does reversing the genders make this sort of conduct any more or any less acceptable, to say nothing of this song?
