It Depends On Where You Work

And the award for best ever use of censorship bars goes to this video for “Toe Jam” by The BPA, featuring David Byrne and Dizzee Rascal.

SFW? NSFW? You decide.

UPDATE! It’s been brought to my attention that this was already posted by Dean Carlson—way back in July—on Line Out. He even wrote something informative about it, whereas I did not.

Hmm...on a general level, I'll say grey area. But since my employer is pretty laid back, this would fall into the SFW category for me.

Zow! Impressive on many levels.

Since I'm the only one at my work right now, it's definitely SFW. I know it would defeat the purpose, but I would love to see a version w/out the bars . . .

I'd like to see a version without the music.

I would say NSFW though.

Fun stuff. The BPA is Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim, who has turned out to be continually creative - much more so than I initially expected. Teaming up with Byrne and Dizzee Rascal? Genius.

Hurm. Reminds me of those moving card effects they used to do at sporting events.

A very, very sexy moving card effect, and definitely NSFW. Just because the naughty-bits are covered by black stripes, doesn't mean their aren't naughty bits underneath.

In fact, I'm probably NSFW right now, seeing as I'm naked underneath my clothes.

(Tip o' the ole' hat to Rita Rudner)

Totally "safe" for work, but not really appropriate.

I love this. And Levislade @2, without the bars? huh? then this would be a little lamer than the first super 8 mm porn flick I saw in 1974.
