Robin Thicke's video pulled from YouTube

Too hot for TV, we're familiar with, but Robin Thicke's newest music video is too hot for YouTube.

The singer collaborated with Pharrell and T.I. for his song "Blurred Lines," and the funky ditty is accompanied by an unrated clip that features topless models.

The women wear nude-colored thongs as they strut and dance across the frame, occasionally playing a banjo or riding a stationary bike.

The video is no longer available on YouTube, although you can still watch it on Vevo.

"YouTube took down the Unrated version of #BLURREDLINES because it was too hot!" Thicke confirmed on Saturday. (Chimed in Pharrell, "Why they trying to ban good s***?")

Thicke's wife, Paula Patton, seems to agree.

"Nudity is Beautiful!!! Violence is ugly," she posted to WhoSay over the weekend, along with a still image from her husband's racy video. "ROBIN #THICKE "BLURRED LINES is the S***!!!" she continued. "It's art and it makes me want to..."

It seems she wants us to fill in the blank.

    I'm sure they banned the video because the song is terrible, it wasn't about the nudity.

    The point she is making is that society finds nudity worse than violence. If you think about it, it is odd because nudity is natural. It's OK to see people killing each other in a movie, video game or tv show but a music video with nude girls is terrible and must not be shown. We do have it backwards and I am guilty of it as well.

    • You are guilty as charged -

      so to absolve yourself for that sin, you need to get naked right now and send us pictures.

    Exploitation of kids and training them to get nude is not the answer. Causes Lust and Lust causes greed and jealousy.

    If Paula Patton thinks that nudity in a music video is all that great, then she should take off her clothes and appear in her birthday suit in the next music video her husband makes.
    I have not seen any nude photographs of Christine Hefner (daughter of Hugh Hefner and former CEO of Playboy Magazine), because she do not want to be photographed naked.

    Some people do think nudity is great, as long as it's someone else posing in the nude and not them.

    Good...have always thought it was a cheap attempt to garner attention for music by having near naked and soft porn-like woman to sell your music...where's the 'art' in that? It's shameless and sad that they think they music and talent isn't enought to be appreciated.

    Dude has written songs for everyone from Aguilera to Usher, & has written at least one song on 15 platinum albums. He's also the first white performer to top the r&b charts in 20yrs. Strangely enough, his own albums only seem popular in the UK. Weird

    I can't stand to watch this guy perform. He tries to act all se xy, but he comes off more like a letch. I'll bet he can break glass with that high pitched voice of his, too. He just gives me the shivers, and not in a good way.

      What's a letch? Don't you mean Leech?

    • Just for the record

      Letch- Verb-gaze at or consider someone with strong se xual desire. Noun-Someone acting in this manner. Those who are letches are usually pretty creepy individuals.
      Leech-type of segmented worm. Or, one who benefits, usually deliberately, from others information or efforts, who offers nothing in return.

    • because you have a desire does not define you as a letch

    so the only way he could get attention is to have a bunch of naked women walking around?

    AND to this gem of a quote,

    Paula Patton, seems to agree.

    "Nudity is Beautiful!!! Violence is ugly,"

    But it's ok to exploit women to get your husband some attention? double standard much?

    Darn, that's too bad. I thought the video was awesome. The song is great, it's really cute and fresh and perfect for spring. I watched the video over and over and over again, it was so cute.
