April 02, 2013 07:14:49 GMT


When R 'n' B singer Robin Thicke released the second, more "revealing" version of his original "Blurred Lines" music video, he may have unknowingly crossed the thin line between raunchy music video and X-rated adult entertainment.

The naked new version was reportedly too graphic and explicit that it was taken down shortly after it debuted on YouTube late last week. It also made some sexual innuendos, like when it flashed "Robin Thicke Has a Big D" across the screen and, in more than a few moments, the singer's last name in red, bold letters shown in hashtag form.
