David Bowie's 'The Next Day' Video Back on YouTube After Short Ban


May 09, 2013 03:07:30 GMT


David Bowie fans can now breathe a sigh of relief after the legendary glam-rock singer's controversial video for new single "The Next Day" has been put back on video hosting site YouTube. The three-minute clip was pulled shortly after it was released online on Wednesday, May 8 for reportedly violating YouTube's terms of service, but the site's bosses confessed to having made a "wrong call" and decided to reinstate the video with an adults-only rating.

The short ban was apparently made based on the religious theme of avante-garde filmmaker Floria Sigismondi's video, where Bowie is made to look as a Christ-like character singing in a bar filled with other familiar character references to the Christian faith such as a nun, a self-flagellating monk, and a cardinal handing out cash to several half-naked women.
