Watch banned PES5 advert

Starring Terry and Thierry.

A new advert promoting Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer 5 has been banned from our screens by UK censors.

The ad, which stars John Terry and Thierry Henry, depicts a lawnmower being driven over an electric cable - something which could cause serious injury in real life, such as your skeleton all flashing through your skin and your hair sticking up while all smoke comes off your clothes.

Problem is that little kiddies can't always tell the difference between telly and real life, apparently, and the particularly stupid ones tend to copy what they see on screen - so for health and safety issues, the ad has been banned.

But not from the Internet, of course, where we're all free to watch footage of much worse things than electrical mishaps should we so choose. Which means the PES5 advert is now available for download via Eurofiles - enjoy.

PES5 is out now on PS2 and Xbox - be sure to check out our review if you haven't already.
