Age rating to be permanent feature on online music videos.
Online music videos will now get age ratings in the same way films do, following a government pilot. Sony Music, UniversalMusic and WarnerMusic will send videos to the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) before putting them on YouTube and Vevo.
Of the 132 videos submitted to the BBFC so far, 56 are rated 12 and 53 classified 15.
Only one video got an 18 certificate – DizzeeRascal’sCouple Of Stack, which you can watch below. WARNING: This video is seriously gory.
