It looks like the build-up to the premiere of 30 Seconds to Mars' new music video for "Hurricane" has resulted in a letdown after the clip was banned.
If banter between band members on the internet is any gauge, it seems "The Man" has deemed the roughly 20-minute-long epic too raunchy for TV.
In a Twitter post, band member Tomo Milicevi also says, "The Internet is still restriction free. The "Hurricane" film will be seen." He also added "Don't blame MTV peeps" after fans turned their frustration on MTV. "They are not 'The Man'. It's the man above 'The Man'."
There has already been plenty of this footage leaked.
Frontman Jared Leto describes the film/music video as a "meditation on the violence of sex and the sex of violence. The video is a surrealistic dream, nightmare, fantasy through the streets of New York City at night where the people and places that are normally reserved for the darker recesses of this town are kind of brought into the light and celebrated. It’s like a big, giant art opening really where the freaks have taken over the town."
