Default Banned XFX Commercial [FUD]

Quote:
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.

Fudzilla - XFX has the greatest banned advertisement

Video: Banned XFX advert - Havin' a great day - CollegeHumor video

This may be considered NSFW and likely not intended for "mature" adults who find little humour in things slightly perverse- It's hosted on college humour so be your own judge if it sounds appropriate for you or not.

That said - let hilarity ensue
