Actor Jeffery Self and his band of hunks are here to combat the Food and Drug Association’s ridiculous blood donation regulations with the Taylor Swift “Bad Blood” parody video “Sad Studs.” 

It was big news for the gay community when the FDA announced that it would be be scrapping the longtime ban on gay and bisexual men donating blood. But it turned out the FDA would only let men who had been celibate for at least 12 months donate blood. Meanwhile, there’s still a huge need for blood donations that could help save lives. 

While lifting the ban shows progress, many in the gay community still aren’t too happy with the new restrictions. In a parody cover of Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar’s “Bad Blood,” Self and a band of hot dudes poke fun at the idea that gay men should stay away from the dick for at least 12 months in order to give blood. In true “Bad Blood” fashion, characters such as Dr. Policy and Cum Gutters are styled with kickass wardrobes.

These guys are fighting the good fight—while looking totally glam at the same time.
