XFX has the greatest banned advertisement

The only way to market a PSU
We have stumbled upon the most innovative advertisement for a power supply unit that we have seen in our lives. We thought that you just can't get innovative and be interesting by advertising a computer PSU, something that is considered to be a key part of the system, at least by the enthusiast consumer.
Unfortunately, the advertisement is banned as it might be considered to be inappropriate for TV, but as far as we are concerned, this is far from inappropriate and we have no trouble writing about it. In any case, the PSU can be used for other things than just providing clean and stable power to the computer system, and we already saw Cooler Master using one of its own to start a car.
XFX has recently launched its own power supply which targets especially gamers with its looks, as that is the part of market where you can't do a lot to differentiate yourself from the rest of the competition.
You can check out the video here as it was pulled from Youtube. We just hope that guys from Collegehumor.com won't pull it as well, as it would just be a shame not to check it out again in a near future.
