This throwback country video is still quite shocking to watch today YouTube/RascalFlattsVEVO

You better make sure you’re not watching this video at work or around your kids. It’s easily the steamiest country video in history. No clip has even come close since Rascal Flatts released this video back in 2003.

Rascal Flatts guitarist Joe Don Rooney turned a lot of heads when he bared his full backside at the end of their video for “I Melt,” the title track of their sophomore album. Before flashing the camera, Joe Don is seen canoodling in bed with a very hot model, Christina Auri, who is fresh from the shower.

Oh, and we get to see her in the shower, too.

Joe Don’s bandmates, Gary LeVox and Jay DeMarcus, are seen flirting with other beautiful women around Miami, where the video was shot. Joe Don is the only one getting naked, though.

The video channels had to make sure they didn’t show this clip when kids were watching. CMT aired the clip unedited, but the other big network at the time, GAC, banned it.

The controversy didn’t hurt the song’s popularity though. “I Melt” peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Country Songs chart.
