MTV bans Gnarls Barkley’s RUN
Nope, Run’s music video wasn’t banned in MTV for excessive violence or explicit sexual images. It was banned because it MAY CAUSE SEIZURES! I’m not kidding! LOL! It was deemed that the music video, which features a cameo appearance from Justin Timberlake, may trigger epileptic seizures with its strobe-like effects. According to MTV, it failed the Harding Test, which judges whether TV images may cause seizures. Says Danger Mouse,
“I don’t know exactly what’s going on, but we’re having issues. I think (the video) is cool. It works for me. But I’m not necessarily that easily seasick.”
