YouTube Bans Latest Bowie Video
YouTube has banned David Bowie's latest video, saying its content "violated YouTube's Terms of Service".
It is not known what the exact reason for the ban is but the new film, conceived and written by 66-year-old Bowie and directed by Floria Sigismondi, features an array of religious imagery.
The ban comes on the same day as the video, starring Bowie with international film stars Gary Oldman and Marion Cotillard, was released.
The latest video accompanies the title track on the singer's comeback album, The Next Day.
It depicts Cotillard - the French actress who won an Oscar for her role in La Vie En Rose - as a dancing girl who bleeds from stigmata marks on her palms, while Bowie plays a Jesus-like figure in robes fronting his band in a seedy basement bar.
