YouTube changes course, rereleases Justin Timberlake’s Tunnel Vision music video
After being removed for a few days because of its NSFW content, Justin Timberlake’s “Tunnel Vision” video is back on YouTube.
YouTube had pulled the video earlier this week, the latest video featured a few shots of a naked woman getting down to the smooth beats of J-Timberlake. The video is just the latest battle between music’s top artist to put out the raciest and most provocative music-videos possible. Something that has been going on since the creation of MTV. It was Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” that was most recently making waves, it too was pulled from YouTube shortly after being released, due to a violation of the Google-owned site’s policy on explicit content.
In response to the video a YouTube representative said in a statement, via E! Online, “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.” The 20/20 Experience, Timberlake’s first album in seven years will be promoted with a summer tour with Jay-Z that begins on July 17, 2013 in Toronto.
