What do the cast of "Duck Dynasty" and pop phenomenon Robin Thicke have in common?
Yeah, the correct answer to that would be: Absolutely nothing.
That is, unless they are subject matter in the hands of Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood at the 2013 Country Music Association Awards. The pair, longtime hosts of the annual awards show — and perpetual jokesters — managed to put their own redneck spin on Thicke's massive summertime hit, "Blurred Lines," using the massively popular redneck reality series as inspiration.
"You're a country girl!" the two warbled, in place of "good girl." And, instead of Thicke's suggestive "I know you want it," they substituted "I know you've hunted!"
The CMA Awards are a family-friendly show, so there was no representation of Thicke's infamously scantily clad models that accompanied him in the "Blurred Lines" video. However, Paisley and Underwood treated the crowd to something even better: The actual cast of "Duck Dynasty," who boogied on stage with them, much to the audience's delight.
"These ducks aren't plastic," Paisley deadpanned.
Paisley and Underwood have been hosting the Country Music Association Awards for five years running, and have missed nary a pop-culture reference in their now-infamous opening monologues — hitting everything from the swine flu epidemic to Hank Williams Jr.'s political commentary in seasons past. However, it's rare the seasoned jokesters manage to kill two birds with one stone (um, would that be literally or figuratively...or both?!).
The 2013 CMA Awards aired live from Nashville Nov. 6. Check out a gallery of red-carpet fashion here.
