Kate Upton is one of the most famous models in the world. Her bikini-clad figure was displayed on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, and that was the moment she went from being a working model to being a celebrity model. Since then, videos of her goofing around in bikinis (or just in general) have become hot property, and nobody knows that more than fashion photographer Terry Richardson, who made sure to have fun with Upton while shooting the model for Harper’s Bazaar. A 20-second video of Kate Upton dancing in a bikini was deemed too hot for YouTube and was banned by the service.
Of course, once the banning went viral, YouTube reposted the video. That’s good, because they corrected their mistake. Granted, YouTube is a private company who can remove any video they want at any time, but there is much worse content on YouTube than a girl dancing in a bikini. This wouldn’t even be a controversy if YouTube didn’t make it a controversy; to me, the video is more goofy and awkward (and blatantly trying to get attention) than illicit.
Here’s the video, restored by YouTube and published at Terry Richardson’s YouTube channel. Decide for yourself if Kate Upton’s Cat Daddy dance is too hot for YouTube. If you ask me, it’s more awkward and goofy, but I’m not YouTube.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCUnWIs88CQ
