The Public Wanking video shows one of the band pretending to masturbate near a baby, telling the mother that ‘your baby’s sexy’, and has invoked the ire of some high profile critics in the process.

“The group member claims that the baby sexually excites him” Little Britain’s Matt Lucas said on Twitter of the video.

“Am I too old to get it? Maybe I am. If so, I’m glad. It’s repulsive.”

The Janoskians responded with a typically abrupt and unapologetic response, saying that they didn’t “give a fuck” and that it was definitely “their favourite video”.

“It was acting and if you couldn’t tell we weren’t really wanking…the baby would never understand what was going on,” they told fans on Twitter.
