This double-sided vintage tee promotes the memorable 1998 shockumentary film Banned from Television, and features the movie's tagline "It will shock you!". Back before the internet provided easy access to all sorts of graphic imagery and video content, film producer Joe Francis created Banned from Television, a direct-to-video film, that featured exactly what the title suggests. The movie showed a variety of footage that censors decided was too disturbing to be shown on TV.
Francis gathered the footage used for the movie while working on the reality television program, Real TV, which showed extraordinary real world events caught on tape. Francis licensed the footage that the show refused to air and compiled it into Banned from Television and its two subsequent sequels. Just some of the shocking videos included in the series were a public execution, a rampaging elephant attack, a woman getting hit by a train, and a hotel fire.
While gathering and editing the footage that was used for the movie, Francis came across some clips that would inspire his next business venture. After finding footage of college age women at Mardi Gras and on Spring Break, Francis decided to create the Girls Gone Wild franchise.
