Banned from TV!

Pokerstars.com, the online gambling website, made a commercial for Germany that is not fit for German TV, according to the always so credible newspaper Aftonbladet. Take a look:

Oooh yeaaahhhhh, some good ultra violence there.

To me, it is pretty clear that everyone involved knew that it would never air. If we assume that they did, we can instead discuss the tactic: making a violent video, get it banned from TV, hoping to get press about the banned video linking to it on Youtube and get viewers that way without having to pay for any ad space. Good or bad? And are there other good examples out there?
