Justin Timberlake’s “Tunnel Vision” video was pulled from YouTube for its nudity after the NSFW clip premiered on July 3.

People were quick to call JT’s clip a rip-off of Robin Thicke’s 80-million-views-and-growing “Blurred Lines” video that debuted in late March and also featured three naked female models dancing around. While Thicke released both an edited and unrated version of his provocative clip, Timberlake’s “Tunnel Vision” was quickly flagged and taken down by the site for violating the site’s policy on explicit content.

“Tunnel Vision” has returned to YouTube, but now with a “viewer discretion is advised” warning. “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,” YouTube said in a statement.

Despite the initial flub, the “Tunnel Vision” video is already at 1.8 million views. Watch it below. Part two of JT’s The 20/20 Experience is due Sept. 30.
