Louis CK’s apology for his sexual misconduct has been set to music – and it’s an earworm

The comedian was criticised for his statement that highlighted his status in the industry and did not explicitly say ‘sorry’.

After Louis CK was accused of sexual misconduct by at least five women who spoke to the New York Times , the comedian furnished a long apology, which was immediately panned for being narcissistic and evasive.

“The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly,” read the statement of the comedian, who has been accused of masturbating in front of multiple women. “I...took advantage of the fact that I was widely admired in my and their community.”

His comments, which were criticised for dwelling on his achievements while not using the word “sorry”, have now been set to music by comedian, writer and producer Lauren Maul. With a catchy refrain that asserts that CK never showed any woman his penis “without asking first”, the song highlights the ridiculousness of the statement and has the makings of an earworm.

Maul is the creator of the web series Amazon Reviews! The Musical, and Next Level Anxiety.

The Louis CK Apology...Set to Music, is part of Maul’s forthcoming album titled Apologies From Men, which the filmmaker describes as a “series of famous male apologies set to music”.

After multiple allegations of sexual assault and rape were reported against producer Harvey Weinstein in October, several prominent Hollywood personalities have been accused of misconduct, including CK, Kevin Spacey, Jeffrey Tambor, Brett Ratner and James Toback.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
