Watch the video before you let your kids see it

Wow. I just saw the video for this song and I am stunned. The premise is supposed to be "comical," but they missed by a long shot (at least for this mom). The gratuitous violence side-by-side with rough sexual scenes, biting ears and lips, a girl mounting a "helpless" guy, slapping and kissing in the same breath - isn't that video pornography/S&M/rape, just with clothes on? The catchy song is tolerably for the radio (though after seeing this, I will change the station), but the video is a definite NO or OFF for anyone under the age of 18.
