The video for new Gnarls Barkley track 'Run' has been pulled due to the fact that it might cause epileptic seizures.

It has apparently failed something called the Harding Test, which you've probably all heard of, which basically gauges how likely strobe effects are to cause a reaction in epilepsy sufferers.

Duo member Danger Mouse says of the promo, which features a cameo from Justin Timberlake: "I don't know exactly what's going on, but we're having issues. I think (the video) is cool. It works for me. But I'm not necessarily that easily seasick. We can't predict how people are going to interpret it".

The new Gnarls Barkley album, 'The Odd Couple', is out on 8 Apr.

THE VIDEO BELOW IS FOR THE TRACK 'RUN'... PLEASE BE AWARE WHEN WATCHING THIS VIDEO AS IT MAY CAUSE SEIZURES.
