New Gnarls Barkley Video: Too Gnarly For TV?

Stop The Presses!

Much ado has been made about "Run," the totally awesome new '80s-style video by Gnarls Barkley.

Now, you'd think all the fuss would be about Justin Timberlake's star turn as a Jheri-Curled, Thriller-jacketed dance show host, a comedic performance every bit as hilarious as any of his skits on SNL.

But instead, it's because MTV has banned the vid from its rotation.

These days, most hip-hop clips get vetoed by the MTV powers-that-be for sex and swear words. But oddly, "Run" is getting the runaround because its retro strobe effects--which (you have been warned) kick in around the 2:15 mark--allegedly have the potential to induce Pokemon-style seizures.

Anyway, watch the band's banned video below, if you dare, and judge for yourself. (Yahoo! takes no responsibility for any resultant negative reactions, whether "Run" gives you a seizure or, you know, you just plain don't dig it.)
