The world would appear to have gone PC mad with the banning of this video today by the UK advertising standards authority. The video shows a group of young backpackers diving into a pool in Mexico and was aimed at promoting Hostelworld but has been banned because of links to tombstoning. For those not aware that is the act of people jumping into crazy places which has led to people dying all over the world. 20 people complained about the video which is why it will get pulled.
