Yves Saint Laurent advert banned in the UK

This Yves Saint Laurent ad seems to be the talk of the net at the moment! So I did some searching and found the commercial on Youtube.  This is the Belle d’Opium advert, starring Melanie Thierry, that has been banned from the UK. Apparently the Advertising Standards Authority believes that the advert displays actions that “simulate drug use.”  Could it have been the name that tipped them off?
