Banned Bowie Video Resurrected

Sneak Peek the latest shock video from David Bowie, titled "The Next Day", previously banned by YouTube, reportedly over 'offensive content', due to the 'heavy use of religious imagery'.

In the video, Bowie, wears religious garments while performing in a squalid basement bar.

Cast also includes Gary Oldman ("The Dark Knight Rises") as a two-fisted priest and Marion Cotillard as a spaced-out hooker.

When Cotillard's hands suddenly bleed from stigmata marks, spraying other patrons including a virginal-looking innocent, Oldman's character yells at Bowie, "This is your doing...", followed by Bowie being flogged.

According to YouTube, the initial removal of the clip was a 'mistake' and it has since been posted with an adult-content warning.

"The Next Day" is the newest single from Bowie's critically-acclaimed new album, produced by Tony Visconti ("Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars").
