The comments section suggests that the video is actually quite accurate.

Going up to a person you don’t know and putting your hand on their hip as a means of expressing interest/seduction isn’t funny. It’s sexual harassment.

It's a parody, and nothing it suggests makes it a serious instructional video or documentary in any way.
Or maybe the ridiculous, comedic strutting of the males will offend someone as demeaning to men? After all, real men don't do that. :chin:

I just don’t think that sexual harassment or rape jokes are funny. It’s a bit triggering.

But it's not making a joke of sexual harassment. If anything it's making a jokey comment on the utter ineptness of males.

When a guy did that to me, it wasn’t funny but apparently it’s supposed to be funny in the video. :roll:

Rape jokes aren’t supposed to be “instructional” either.

But it is funny in this video, because of the way it's presented as inept and idiotic behavior of the males.

What’s funny to one person is triggering to another. Would a rape joke be funny if it was about the social ineptness of males? I doubt it.

Sexual harassment isn’t funny. Joking about it is making light of a serious issue.

Sometimes, putting a hand on someone's hip is just that and nothing more, especially when presented here as an Attenborough documentary.

Would you rather I locked the thread?

No, putting one’s hand on someone’s hip as an attempt at sexual seduction IS sexual harassment. The mockumentary is making light of serious, not-funny behavior that happens in clubs (and elsewhere).

One tiny aspect of a video mocking the ridiculous behavior of males?
Ok, thread locked.
