70 Million by Hold Your Horses

The mostly male Swedish band Hold Your Horses dressed in drag to re-create traditional classical art for their music video.

Feministing writes,
Seeing these men adopting the roles of both men and women in classical paintings really serves to highlight the Guerrilla Girls' points about how women frequently appear in art: naked. Another lesson in why drag can be so powerful. It really makes you see gender norms in a new way.

Plus, seeing semi-naked Swedes is just fun. Anyone remember this? (think of it as a 2-for-1 TOTI)
