The message in this song is so simple and so powerful that it's actually radical. Also, this is super-duper NSFW. Like, so much nudity. Speaking of nudity, bodies are cool. People who are cool with their bodies are also cool. In the words of Abed, "Cool. Cool cool cool."
You can enjoy up till about 1:45 before it gets totally NSFW (not safe for work).
The message here? Love the skin you're in.
But do you still need some convincing?
Here are 5 *slightly* more familiar faces than the ones in the video and their thoughts on body image.
"i find this curious - two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real. remember flaws are ok :-)"
2. Keira Knightley
"I think women's bodies are a battleground and photography is partly to blame. ... [O]ur society is so photographic now, it becomes more difficult to see all of those different varieties of shape." (From The Times)
3. Mary Lambert
"I am a big girl. A voluptuous, curvy, dress-wearing lesbian. I love my body; it's the only one I'll ever have. I eat a lot of greens and work out and drink gin martinis and put M&Ms in my froyo and sometimes I don't do anything but watch Project Runway. I am allowed to look sexy, feel sexy, and be in love. I am worthy of all of those things, and so are you. Own your good and bad, and all the scary parts that you've been covering up because it is yours and no amount of judgement can tell you how to love your body. In the words of Sonya Renee, the body is not an apology." (From her Facebook status)
4. Gabourey Sidibe
"'How are you so confident?' 'I'm an asshole!' Okay? It's my good time, and my good life, despite what you think of me. I live my life, because I dare. I dare to show up when everyone else might hide their faces and hide their bodies in shame. I show up because I'm an asshole, and I want to have a good time." (From her Gloria Awards and Gala speech)
5. Amber Riley
"Hollywood is a very hard place to be in. It really is. Being the person that I am, you know, being the size that I am, being a woman, being a black woman, there's not a lot of roles for us. … I was being offered the girl who sits in the corner and, you know, eats all day, the girl who wanted to commit suicide 'cause she was fat. It was never anything that I felt had a good ending. I never wanted to play a character that hated herself. I wanted people to know that those aren't the only kind of roles for women like me, normal girls." (From "This Is How I Made It," via Entertainment Weekly)
Remember: Feeling awesome about your body is incredibly sexy. Not that that should be your motivation. But in case you needed more motivation ... there it is. :)
