    why is it banned? Or have I just missed the entire point?
    For perhaps the first time ever I agree with paulears.

    Maybe it'd help if I knew what Hanes is.

    I think it was probably banned for bad acting and lack of talent.

    Actually, it's probably not been banned at all but having the tag "banned" means that lots of people look at it online.

    Maybe I'm easily pleased, but it amused me.

    I think it quite successfully attempts to mimic that sort of pointless advert. It has many of the ingredients there, the over the top "sexiness", the distraction, the slow-mo of the dropped phone, the totally ludicrous lines in the voiceover (the speaking of these was the weakest part of this - if you can't get "the voice" my suggestion is don't try), then the put down of the "hottie", the "geek" being the cool guy and the piss-take ending.

    BTW Andy, Hanes are socks -(hence the use of words like "skintight" and "flexible" and the double-meanings therein. The clues were (a) he takes her socks off and (b) the voiceover says "Hanes Socks".

    Not a pro job by any means but for kids practicing, I thought it was very good.
