code word: chapstick is a Merlin vid by nixwilliams and sajee (3:21 min). The vid uses clips from the episode 1.07 and is set to a version of "I kissed a girl" that is sung by a man. As such it's a twist on the Woke Up Gay cliche. The vid frames the het kiss between Arthur and Sophia in the episode as something that happens while Merlin and Arthur are in an established relationship and Arthur is experimenting with a girl.

code word: chapstick was a 2008 Camelot Music Video Awards nominee in the category 'Episode'.
