Searching For Janet Jacksons Sunbathing Video

    October 28, 2005

There are lots of things to search for on the net. Video is always a great choice because there’s all kinds of content, things you might never even expect. But then things that don’t surprise you creep up too. It looks like Janet Jackson’s got a new video making the rounds and you probably won’t see it on CBS.

It seems Ms. Jackson needs to improve security or at the very least, work on her privacy fence because the paparazzi got a bit of footage of her nude sunbathing and the video is making rounds on the Internet. After checking out a number of video search engines, it eventually turned up. Reuters pointed that iFilms pulled the video “out of respect for Ms. Jackson.”

The clip is only 43 seconds long and shows her rubbing lotion in and then flipping. The clip was found on the Blinkx video search engine and linked from EVTV1.

Ms. Jackson is no stranger to risqu controversy. Back during the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show, she raised a ruckus with her now legendary “wardrobe malfunction. As a result, the FCC began to crack down on such things in both radio and television.

Inadvertent viral marketing is always an interesting phenomenon to watch. It’s also interesting to see who will let the video in an who won’t.
