Update at 8:50 a.m. PDT: The video has now disappeared from the ad agency's site as well.
Earlier this week, we were all rather intrigued by the appearance of a Microsoft ad, in which a wife borrows her husband's laptop and suffers a technicolor nightmare when she espies a site that he has been, um, enjoying.
By Wednesday night, however, Microsoft had second thoughts about the pulling power of puke.
The ad has been pulled from the IE8videos channel on YouTube.
It's also has been removed from the BrowsefortheBetter.com site, which is part of the ad campaign. The vomit ad's slot has been replaced by a tag that says "coming soon."
This could have meant that a new ad is coming soon, or that the upchuck was uploaded too soon.
