Singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake's new music video Tunnel Vision is so racy that it as been deemed too explicit the for YouTube. While the video is now back on the site, it does not take you to the link before verifying your account and age.
The Mirrors hitmaker's latest video features
virtually nude models writhing around and performing a series of provocative dance moves.
The lyrics go something like:
Don't know why but girl
I'm feeling close to you, maybe this ocean view
I'm so emotional, and all these stars been dancing on my head
Too long, too long, too long
I wrote a song for you, I wanna sing to you
But every time I'm close to you, the words wanna come out, but I forget
It's so strong, it's so strong, it's so strong
Interestingly, while the lyrics of the song have a romantic tone and seem to be those of a lover's, the video seems to be quite a disconnect. One can't help but think it might be one for titillating purposes.
The 32-year-old, who is married to actress Jessica Biel, wasn't worried about the controversy, and promoted the song on Twitter, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"Check out the new video for Tunnel Vision and be ready, it's explicit," Timberlake posted on Twitter.
The arty video is the third release from Timberlake's best-selling album The 20/20 Experience and was directed by Jonathan Craven, Simon McLoughlin and Jeff Nicholas for creative firm, The Uprising Creative.
