Justin Timberlake’s provocative music video for “Tunnel Vision” is now allowed back on YouTube after a brief absence.
“Tunnel Vision” hit the web last Wednesday exposing the audience to many topless women. Hours after it was released, the video was taken off YouTube for obvious reasons regarding explicit content. The video was later reassesed and decidedly put back on the website with an age verification sign in requirement.
The nudity exposed at this stature is uncommon for a video of any kind to not be taken off various social media sites. A google spokesperson enlightens us on their policy.
“While our guidelines generally prohibit nudity, we make exceptions when it is presented in an educational, documentary or artistic context, and take care to add appropriate warnings and age restrictions.”
Robin Thicke’s video “Blurred Lines,” released earlier this year, also contained an extreme amount of female nudity. This single was immediately pulled from YouTube and not granted the same artistic exception “Tunnel Vision” has acquired.
With background vocals from Timbaland and the sexy as ever Justin Timberlake heating up the dance floor, the topless women are hardly the center of attention.
Check out this video and decide for yourself.
Please take note, this video does contain highly explicit material including nudity.
