Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton took control of the Internet on Tuesday, when photographer Terry Richardson uploaded a video of her doing the “Cat Daddy” dance in the same skimpy bikini she wore on the cover of SI’s Swimsuit Issue. The video was deemed too sexy by YouTube and was removed from the site for a short time.
Us Weekly reports that the video was taken down because the site said that it violated its policies on nudity and sexual content, even though she is never nude in the one-minute video.
The video has since been put back on YouTube, but it has been placed under the site’s age restriction. Comments have also been disabled for the video, which has been viewed over 300,000 times.
Richardson also uploaded it on Vimeo, where the video has over 450,000 views.
While the video with Richardson caught the most attention, ABC News reports that another commercial with Upton was also released on Tuesday. In the commercial for Skullcandy, Upton asks Oklahoma City Thunder players annoying questions while wearing much more than a bikini. That video only has 35,000 views so far.
Upton has been a rising star on the Internet, especially when a video surfaced showing her teaching “How To Dougie” at a Los Angeles Clippers game. Since then, she has been starring in a steady stream of commercials and landed on the cover of this year’s SI Swimsuit Issue.
Here is her video with Richardson:
