Tv network executives in South Korea have banned pop sensation Psy's new video for Gentleman over his destruction of public property in the promo.

The rapper's follow-up to Gangnam Style opens with the star strolling down a street and kicking over a traffic cone and continues with the hitmaker tormenting beautiful women in a series of pranks. It ends with him suggestively rubbing up against a street corner pole and simulating sex with another cone.

The cone sequences have offended channel chiefs at Kbs, who insist they amount to the destruction of public property, and they are refusing to air the clip for fear of negatively influencing youngsters to do the same.

Psy's managers have accepted the ban after refusing to edit the video for the network, but the snub appears to have just boosted the promo's popularity online - Gentleman smashed online records on Saturday (13Apr13) with almost 19 million YouTube.com views in its first 24 hours on release.

Gentleman has since racked up over 144 million views in its first five days online, but it still has a way to go before matching the success of Gangnam Style - that promo became the first pop clip to ever reach one billion views.
