(CBS) It looks like he really did bring sexy back.

Justin Timberlake's racy music video for his latest single "Tunnel Vision" has returned to YouTube after it was temporarily removed from the website, according to MSN, for its abundance of rear and full frontal female nudity.

The clip for "Tunnel Vision" -- the third single off Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience" -- was directed by filmmakers from The Uprising Creative and features scores of nude models dancing suggestively as Timberlake lip-syncs to the song in a studio. Some have made comparisons to Robin Thicke's controversial video for "Blurred Lines."

Perhaps it's not too much of a surprise that the "Tunnel Vision" music video was initially banned, since it looks like there are more naked women than actual shots of Timberlake in the video. Timberlake's latest offering makes music videos famously banned in the past like Madonna's "Justify My Love" and Nine Inch Nails' "Closer" look G-rated by comparison.

The video resurfaced on Timberlake's Vevo page following the brief ban, but viewers must log in to their YouTube account and prove that they are over 18 years of age to watch the clip.
