These Pop Culture Animations by Le Cube Were Too Provocative for MTV

These celebrity gifs by South American design firm Le Cube were apparently rejected by MTV for being too inflammatory -- which is a powerful statement about their risque nature.

The set of gifs lampoon certain pop culture personalities. The animation of Justin Bieber shows him blow drying his hair until his face melts off, for example. Two identical Kanye West clones share a romantic kiss. The animated Miley Cyrus, dressed in her now-iconic 2013 MTV VMAs outfit, has a giant, stretchy, alien-esque tongue, which she sticks out in her signature grimace.

The psychedelic animations cleverly poke fun at today's biggest music icons. Although one of the world's biggest media outlets may have found that they hit the nail on the head a little too hard, they remain perfectly on point.
