The music video, which was removed due to its explicit content, has made its way back to the the video sharing site with age restriction.


Justin Timberlake debuted his racy music video for "Tunnel Vision" earlier this week. The video, which features a number of topless women, was later banned by YouTube for violating its policy on nudity and sexual content. However, the video has now returned to the sharing site, but viewers must sign in to confirm their age.

A Google spokesperson has commented on why the video remains on YouTube. "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 spokesperson said on Friday, July 5.

YouTube's guidelines state, "Most nudity is not allowed, particularly if it is in a sexual context. Generally if a video is intended to be sexually provocative, it is less likely to be acceptable for YouTube."

The music video for "Tunnel Vision" was premiered on YouTube on Wedesday, July 3. The video sees a bunch of naked ladies dancing while smoke swirls around them. In some scenes, Timberlake's face is projected onto the woman's bare breasts and backs.

"Tunnel Vision" is Timberlake's third single off his latest studio effort, "The 20/20 Experience".

It was not the first time YouTube banned a music video with explicit content. Back in March, the site removed the provocative video for Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines".
