Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' Video Banned From YouTube
April 1st, 2013 2:22pm EDT
R&B singer Robin Thicke's raunchy new promo for his song Blurred Lines has been banned from YouTube.com after bosses deemed it too sexually provocative for the video-sharing website.
The Sex Therapy hit-maker recorded a clean and a dirty version of the clip with hip-hop stars T.I. and Pharrell Williams and released the adults-only video, which featured naked models dancing for the cameras, online last week.
However, YouTube executives soon removed the sexy film as it was in violation of the website's censorship guidelines.
In a Twitter.com post, Thicke writes, "YouTube took down the Unrated version of BLURREDLINES because it was too hot!", prompting his collaborator Williams to reply, "Why they trying to ban good s**t?"
The singer, who had to obtain his actress wife Paula Patton's blessing to shoot the provocative video, then directed fans to music website Vevo.com to view the saucy promo.
