The video for the first single off of Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, is an experience to say the least. “Tunnel Vision” comes across as an artistic soft-porn video due to the inclusion of full nudity.
Female models are seen gyrating to the sound of Timberlake’s voice throughout the 6:58 visual experience. Surprisingly, YouTube has given clearance for the video to remain on their website despite a pretty straightforward policy on nudity.
"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," a spokesperson for Google told ABC News.
You may remember not too long ago YouTube banned the video for Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” stating that the video showed “copious footage of female models.”
There was an abundance of breasts in both videos so I’m not sure who decided “Tunnel Vision” was less copious. Once you’ve seen both videos you might agree that the standards for YouTube’s nudity policy are a little “blurry.”
The Video below contains nudity.
Do you think YouTube is showing favoritism, or do you agree with their decision?
