Epilepsy Action is a UK based epilepsy group, who says Kanye West’s new video for “All Of The Lights” may trigger seizures prompting them to have the video banned. Epilespsy Action sent Kanye’s video to be analyzed by Cambridge Research Systems, where they analyzed the video using the “HardingFPA” machine.
The data collected resulted in finding out that the rate at which the lights flash could in fact trigger seizures.
“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.”
According to Epilepsy Action representatives, the video has been pulled from YouTube.com and will be banned from television, particularly in the United Kingdom. The group has contacted Kanye’s agent, YouTube, MTV and other online sources and TV stations to make them aware of the issue and have them take it down.
