VIDEO OF THE DAY: GNARLES BARKLEY "RUN"


Gnarls Barkley's "Run" video is safely on the air in the U.K. after initially failing the Harding Test -- guidelines established to prevent TV images from triggering epileptic seizures.

The problem was the clip's strobe effects, and group member Cee-Lo Green says Gnarls had no problem making some edits to ensure airplay. The unedited clip has been airing on the U.S. edition of MTV since late last week.

"It seemed justifiable to hesitate a bit to make sure it didn't result in something severe," he tells Billboard.com. "We just focused on any compromise we could come to. We didn't get too agitated -- we just concentrated our focus on how we could resolve the problem."

"Run" centers around the fictional public access TV show "City Vibin'" and is set in the early '90s. Justin Timberlake appears as the host of the program, on which Green and fellow Gnarls Barkley principal Danger Mouse perform the track.
