We hope you watched Justin Timberlake’s “Tunnel Vision” video while you could, because it was apparently pulled off of YouTube earlier today for its explicit content.
We reported earlier that Timberlake’s new video to promote his latest single features nude models dancing with several shots of their bare breasts. Oh me, oh my!
The video has drawn comparisons to Robin Thicke’s own controversial “Blurred Lines” video, which featured similar raunchy and NSFW content.
Justin Timberlake posted a link to his new video on Twitter with a fair warning: “Check out the new video for Tunnel Vision and be ready…it’s explicit.”
But many fans wanting to see the clip were disappointed after YouTube decided to pull it down mere hours after it went live Wednesday over the racy content in the video.
“This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube’s policy on nudity or sexual content,” fans reported the site saying when they tried to access the video.
Though many Twitter users and media publications are reporting that the video was removed, I don’t seem to have any trouble accessing the clip. On Justin Timberlake’s VEVO page, the “Tunnel Vision (Explicit)” video is there, it just has the following warning attached to it:
“The following content has been identified by the YouTube community as being potentially offensive or inappropriate. Viewer discretion is advised.”
I’m not sure if this means that YouTube restored the video after fan outcry with a warning label or they just haven’t gotten to this one yet, but check it out for yourself below. Justin Timberlake’s “Tunnel Vision,” which is indeed NSFW:
