Justin Timberlake's raunchy new video has been removed from YouTube due to its explicit content.

The singer's film clip for latest single Tunnel Vision features a bevy of beauties dancing almost completely naked and includes several shots of the models' bare breasts.

The star had posted a link to the video on Twitter alongside the warning message, "Check out the new video for Tunnel Vision and be ready ... it's explicit."

But fans trying to see the clip were left disappointed after bosses at the video-sharing website decided to take it down just hours after it debuted on Wednesday due to its racy content.

A message from the website reads: "This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube's policy on nudity or sexual content."

The same thing happened for Robin Thicke's last video Blurred Lines, which was banned over scenes of female nudity.
