Artistic freedoms - what are the lines between artistic freedom and illegal images? 9 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
There is currently a video on Youtube with 1.6m views that features children wearing not a lot of clothes. It is an official video issued, I assume, with the approval of the band and their record company.

The band were not globally massively successful, but also by no means obscure. I think the first time I heard of this band was on Sky One, back when they had a (reasonably good) music programme.

The lead singer subsequently launched a solo career and became extremely well-known and successful in Britain and internationally.

And, no, it's not from the (boring prog rock plodders) Led Zeppelin.

Think further north.....approximately 1200 miles north....

Birthday by The Sugarcubes. Great band, which I was lucky enough to see live at Reading festival in 1989. Funnily enough I remember the video in question, being on The Chart Show at the time and nobody gave a shit.

Can I ask though what is the point you are making as this is description not analysis...? Was the fact that no one "gave a shit" back then good or bad? If good why? That there would be a "fuss" now is bad is it, and if so why?

Well good, because there is nothing sinister or suspect about the video at all. In the current climate, there would probably be mass hysteria, with a baying mob, armed with pitchforks and flaming torches, sailing over to Iceland to lynch the band and the video director for "child pornography"

It makes me wonder about the minds of people who see naked children playing as sexual.
Cant we just let them be little?
