FIRST -- the video animation IS STILL UP ON www.motrin.com -- someone has posted online that it was taken off - NOT TRUE...animation is still up. See my previous post http://tinyurl.com/mmotrin for whole story on how I called agency and talked to a rep earlier today etc.
SECOND: the blogger who some other tweets are saying started controversy or wrote about the animation on www.motrin.com is Jessica Gottlieb here is a link to her blog http://www.tinyurl.com/5tzum3 The post that started it all (she needs credit) http://tinyurl.com/5tzum3 I just talked to Jessica via phone.

HERE ARE SOME VERY QUICK SCREENGRABS of the video at www.motrin.com.
here is how the video opens click on the arrow on www.motrin.com and wait for 10-15 seconds it must load first then watch Momalogue from Motrin's ad agency.
This is one of the final screenshots in the animation posted at www.motrin.com promoting Motrin to moms in a little video called Momalogue -- this appears to be the most controversial screen according to tweets on www.twitter.com for #twittermom One tweet complained about how zany or yes, crazy the eyes and cartoon quality appeared to denigrate moms according to her post. Amazing 2000 twitter posts in less than 24 hours. Youtube videos & a chat online tonight. Joyce Schwarz, veteran ad agency exec and consultant to agencies www.joycecom.com and via email at joyce @joyce dot com was first to contact the ad agency TAXI's rep --Taxi NYC is agency of record for Motrin see www.tinyurl.com/mmotrin
