With a name like All India Bakchod (AIB), perhaps you may not expect anything more than humour of the juvenile variety, but the group's latest video -- its response to a string of stupid and hateful remarks against women that seem to follow every sexual assault case in India -- not only makes a serious point well but has already been seen more than 852,856 times (at the time of writing).
As the group puts it on its Facebook page:
Bittersweet feeling to have your work appreciated but also sad knowing that so many women relate to it.
AIB is a comedy collective comprising of Tanmay Bhat, Gursimran Khamba, Rohan Joshi, Ashish Shakya that describes its weekly sketch show AIb 365 as India's edgiest, politically incorrect comedy collective AIB.
"Ladies, do you think rape is something men do out of a desire for control, empowered by years of patriarchy?" Kalki Koechlin begins the clip cheerfully. "You've clearly been misled by the notion that women are people, too. Because, let's face it, ladies: rape... it's your fault."
"Scientific studies suggest that women who wear skirts are the leading cause of rape. And you know why? Because men have eyes.
"In fact, here are some examples..."
And the video runs through some of the more egregious nonsense that we have heard from such personages as Asaram Bapu who suggested that addressing the rapists as Bhaiya would have prevented the crime to the Haryana Khap leader who blamed consumption of chowmein for the growing incidents being reported from all over India.
