We have a winner

Drumroll....and the prize for the Maximum Comedy Value Extraction goes to Ian Bell, who along with plenty of other cricketers is doing little television spots for UNICEF's worlwide drive against AIDS (typically a trio from one cricketing nation shows up, images superposed on colourful backgrounds with children smiling away, each speaking to different aspects of the HIV+/AIDS problem - multiple languages have featured).

Ian's little opening line? "HIV affects children..its, uh, a problem". Something is lost in this merely-verbal transcription: the priceless stoner look on Bell's face, as if he had been dragged away from his bong to speak his lines, before being released back to the den.
