Tool, ‘Prison Sex’ – Banned Music Videos
When Tool were just beginning to become modern-day legends, the band released a stop-motion animated video for ‘Prison Sex,’ the second single from ‘Undertow.’ The clip consists of no violence or nudity, but was banned for its ability to tap into human emotion.
The masterfully imaginative and thought-provoking video for the 1993 track was created and directed by guitarist Adam Jones, who has a wealth of previous experience in art direction and animation, most notably for the movie ‘Jurassic Park.’ Due to what was called “disturbing content,” ‘Prison Sex’ was removed from MTV’s rotation, although that didn’t stop the video from grabbing a nomination for Best Special Effects at the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards.
