People with photosensitive epilepsy should not watch the music video for Kanye West’s latest single, All of the Lights, as it contains extensive use of flashing imagery.
We sent the video to Cambridge Research Systems to be analysed by the HardingFPA machine. This machine looks at whether video footage is likely to cause seizures. We have today had confirmation that it contains material that may cause seizures in some people with photosensitive epilepsy.
Ofcom regulations mean that this video should not be broadcast on UK television. However, it is available online in a number of places. We are in the process of trying to contact Kanye West’s agent, YouTube and other online sources of the video to ask that they take it down. We have also contacted MTV and other TV stations to make them aware of the issue. We will pursue this and provide updates on our website as we have them.
If you have concerns or have been affected by this video, please contact the Epilepsy Helpline on freephone 0808 800 5050 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
