Tarkan's Sexy Scenes Resurface Again

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

This is the second time Tarkan's erotic 1994 music video hits the magazine headlines because of its out-takes.Turkish TV channel Kanal 1 has aired the sexy out-takes to Tarkan's 1994 pop video "Dön Bebeğim", the track from his second album A-acayipsin.

It's the second time in the 90s music video's history that out-takes have hit the magazine headlines. In 1998, Turkish newspaper Milliyet had reported on the "shock scenes" resurfacing when another TV channel had aired them.

Still new to stardom, Tarkan had filmed the erotic scenes with an American model for the popular love ballad.

You can read the 1998 article about the Tarkan sex scenes that were left on the cutting room floor at Tarkan Translations, the sister blog to Tarkan Deluxe.

Notes: For those interested there are some errors in this report. Firstly, notwithstanding the claim that the out-takes are being aired on TV "for the first time", errors include calling the shots "behind-the-scenes" footage (they were cut out), saying they were filmed 10 years ago (they were filmed 13 years ago), that the girl is a European model (she is American), and that Tarkan was 25 years old at time of filming (he was 22).
