Though the video for the group's new single, "Run," which features a cameo appearance from Justin Timberlake, is available via various online outlets it is being temporarily banned from airing on MTV, according to Billboard. [Watch below]
The clip reportedly failed the Harding Test, a set of regulations put in place to prevent television images from causing epileptic seizures, because of the video's strobe effects. And though there seems to have been a bit of controversy generated by the video, the group themselves don't see the problem.
"I don't know exactly what's going on, but we're having issues," Danger Mouse told Billboard. "I think [the video] is cool. It works for me. But I'm not necessarily that easily seasick. We can't predict how people are going to interpret it."
The video's plot revolves around a fictional television show set in the 1990's, which is hosted by Timberlake, and features Gnarls Barkley performing as a guest on the show.
