“They can't get enough of that doomsday song”

 

In an age where one-time anarchistic 37-year-old 'punk' is feted at the New York Metropolitan Museum, albeit as couture establishment now, 66-year-old David Bowie's new video, The Next Day, has created a bit of a rumpus on the anything goes internet, not to mention in the pages of the UK press. (See accompanying montage)

Here’s a bit from CBS news, typical of most of the stories being run over the last couple of days:

David Bowie's video for the third single from his album "The Next Day" -- for the song of the same name -- is stirring up controversy among everyone from YouTube to the Catholic Church.

On Wednesday, YouTube temporarily removed the video -- which was released on Tuesday night -- from its site, saying that it had violated the terms of its service. However, it quickly returned the video with a new warning suggesting that it was only suitable for views over the age of 18. 

 

It continues:

Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, issued a statement on the group's website just hours after the video debuted, saying that the "switch-hitting, bisexual, senior citizen from London has resurfaced.”

 

The item concludes thus:

It's nice to know that at 66, Bowie can still ruffle some feathers.”

 

Mr Donohue also points out a scene where a “customer is served eyeballs on a plate”. You would think a senior catholic expert would recognise that as a reference to the very well-known Saint Lucy.

 

Anyway, if you’ve yet to have your feathers ruffled, there are still several places you can view the video:

On vevo: http://smarturl.it/TNDvid and don’t forget vevo mobile for iPhone/iPad and and Android applications.

On YouTube: http://smarturl.it/TNDvidYT
