Hair Club for Men

Finally remembered to post the fifth and final musical d├ętournement in my series on gender construction and socialization through the media.

This is my fifth musical d├ętournement involving gender and the media, and the final in this series. This one is an investigation of the ties between hair and male virility, from the classical and biblical periods to today. It is a critique of consumer culture's attempts to play upon male insecurities and sell imagined masculinity.
