Office warning: Video NSFW due to potty mouth cockroaches

The above Zoo York video ad stars Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covergirl Kate Upton, and it's been banned due to a shot of Upton's "erect nipple," as well as some "bleeped profanity" at the end. Ironically, the NYDN reports that the TV stations that have banned the video are MTV and Adult Swim, networks who probably have broadcasted their fair share of erect nipples (that Skins show has got to have at least one) and bleeped profanity.

We watched the video pretty closely, however, and are having a hard time spotting said nipple. The NSFW language though, is definitely there in the above uncensored version. If you're planning on doing some nipple recon at work, we suggest wearing a pair of headphones.
