Duran Duran's video 'Girl Panic' starring Naomi Campbell and a host of supermodel friends has been banned from television networks.
The video stars Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Helena Christiansen and Yasmin Le Bon.
The film is directed by Jonas Akerlund, and sees the models take on the individual Duran Duran members with Herzigova, playing keyboardist Nick Rhodes. Helena Christensen poses as drummer Roger Taylor and Yasmin Le Bon plays guitar
According to reports, a source said: "MTV are simply overreacting to this video, it's not like this is anything new in pop videos, which have always been controversial. Compared to some pop videos this is all rather tame.''
"The video was also banned for its blatant product placement, yet this is how videos are made today. Four million viewers on YouTube have already seen the video anyway, it's a bit of light-hearted fun, titillation and escapism."
The ban comes nearly 30 years after the band's video for 'Girls On Film' was blocked by MTV.
The source added: "The band had an amazing time filming the video and certainly don't take themselves too seriously, playing cameo roles as waiters, bell hops, chauffeurs and paparazzi.
"The video reflects a supposed day-in-the-life-of expose, that has every ounce of trademark Duran Duran tongue-in-cheek humour and glamour."
