Look, YouTube is an open platform, but that doesn’t mean it’s an XXX free-for-all. Robin Thicke, musician and progeny of Growing Pains star Alan Thicke, has now learned this the hard way. The AP reports that the unrated video for “Blurred Lines,” his latest single, has been apparently been banned from YouTube:

A representative for the R&B crooner said Monday that his unrated video for “Blurred Lines” was banned from the website. The clip features nude models prowling around Thicke and rappers T.I. and Pharrell.

YouTube didn’t respond to the AP’s request for comment, so we’re left to wonder: Was it just the bare breasts? Was it #THICKE flashing over all those breasts? Or perhaps the part where Mr. Thicke lasciviously licks an ice cream cone? Actually, it was probably the sight of a topless girl dancing in front a big sign that says, “Robin Thicke has a big dick.”

Let’s all take a moment to appreciate the fact that Jason Seaver’s TV son grew up to be an evolution-denying Bible-thumper, while his actual son grew up to make music videos featuring more breasts than Spring Breakers.

The video is still available via Vevo. Judge for yourself:
