Robin Thicke Made The Mistake Of Starting #AskThicke On Twitter — Here Are The Best Responses

Robin Thicke blowing smoke into a model's face in Blurred Lines video GIFThere’s not much I like better than a publicity move gone hilariously wrong, so let’s all start a slow clap for Robin Thicke, who for some reason thought it was a good idea to collaborate with VH1 for the #AskThicke hashtag.

I have no idea whose idea this was, but apparently that person thought that they’d be able to open a Q&A, collect a couple responses, and pump out some stock answers to questions like ‘what is your musical inspiration’ and ‘is Miley Cyrus cool’.

But the internet, glorious beast that it is, wasn’t going to let that happen, and has rallied impressively with a hilarious variety of responses. Here are just a few of my favorites.

Thisssss.

The first of many ‘Blurred Lines’ references.

I told you.

Probably one of the only questions he’s truly qualified to give an answer to.

The photo makes it.

What is ‘pound-shop’ and why is it my new favorite word??

I think we’d all like an answer to this one.

Zinnnnngggg.

I don’t know why I love this one so much.

I am laughing.

Legit went ‘ohhhhhhhh shit!’ inside my head when I read this one.

Valid, all valid.

That is 100% what Robin Thicke does when he’s alone. I both love and hate it.

    I am LOVING this. It’s made getting up today worthwhile. :)

    I had to join in too, of course.

    So, what does rhyme with 'Hug Me'? Is it 'Drug Me'? #AskThicke @robinthicke @VH1— Enchanted Harlot (@enchantedharlot) July 1, 2014

    Okay just searched for what “Pound Shop” means and now I love it, too.

    Also: BLURRED LIONS. DYING.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      YA BIG GIMP.

    • loser_sneeze

      I can only imagine googling ‘pound shop’ might come up with some…um..interesting results.

    • Elizabeth Aspen

      It looks like it’s UK slang for a dollar store, so Thickehead is a dollar store Ricky Martin!

    Are you an actual predator or just a profoundly boring man desperately trying and failing to make erotically-charged music? http://tr.im/5nszd

    This is great! Good job amazing people of the world! Just read, “Robin Thicke says he doesn’t want any more abuse on Twitter. I know he wants it really. #AskThicke”

      Also, this. “How long are the roadworks on the Fore Street tunnel on the North Circular expected to last? #AskThicke”

    “Pound shop” = Dollar store

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Ahhhh gotcha! So ‘pound shop version’ is what we’d call ‘low-rent version’ in America? Or knock-off? Something like that?

    • loser_sneeze

      Yup. Cheap knock off of Ricky Martin. Which I never thought about before but now I TOTALLY see it! lol

    • Mystik Spiral

      Poor man’s Ricky Martin.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Nice.

  • Jessalyn Champignon

    LOL I have another new favorite that I read.
    “You got any Marvin Gaye albums? #AskThicke” bahahahaha

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Oh my god, that’s amazing.
