Selecta - a programme that, a decade on, seems astonishingly and crudely racist - combined with the exact culturally clueless thought processes that led to Alanis Morissette's 'My Humps' spoof video six years ago, filtered through 2013 clickbait culture: so much for saying anything brave or new.

It is to this country's immense shame that the John Lewis Christmas advert has been elevated to the status of a cultural event - if you get the tiniest bit excited about the prospect of being shilled shit, please have several words with yourself - but Allen's autopilot sentimentality was an effective means of ingratiating herself with Middle England.

Of course, this isn't just about Thicke — he wasn't the first to make a sexist music video and he certainly won't be the last — so Allen includes women with nearly-bare voluptuous rear ends shaking them in terrifying slow motion like every rap video vixen who came before them while her classless manager tries to get her to follow suit. And I applaud her efforts. In the four-minute promo, Allen takes a stand against sexism and misogyny in the music industry by spoofing modern pop culture.

If it comes from somewhere else and it feels like the woman is being coerced or forced into something then it's gross. If I was a little braver, I would have been wearing a bikini too, but I do not and I have chronic cellulite, which nobody wants to see. The camera's gaze is lascivious but disapproving: it lingers disgustedly on a black woman's hand over her crotch, a black woman's jiggling arse, a black women's legs opening and closing, a black woman's champagne-soaked breasts for just a few seconds more than it should.
