A group of young Auckland lawyers behind a controversial parody of Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines has done it again.

The University of Auckland Law Revue, which made international headlines with their banned YouTube "feminist parody" clip Defined Lines, have returned with Snap Chat - a parody of the social media phenomenon.

It uses Akon's hit Smack That as a blueprint to deliver lines like: "Snap chat, a selfie whore, snap chat, cat on the floor."

Defined Lines, which was banned over sexual content but then reinstated by YouTube, has had nearly one million views since being uploaded five days ago.

The video was part of the Law Revue, a show of 40 skits performed to 1500 people over three shows at SkyCity Theatre last week.

"We just want some people to think about the original video and some of the reactions people have had to it,'' the group said at the time. "It is meant to be taken tongue in cheek.

On YouTube, the Auckland University Law Revue is described as "an annual comedy sketch show written and performed entirely by a cast of law students".
