Video Saved From The Memory Hole: The Pulled DDB-B/WWF 9/11 YouTube Clip

If you click on the YouTube video we embedded yesterday from the World Wild Life Fund and/or DDB-B (The Brazilian branch of the agency founded under the name Doyle, Dane, and Bernbach) showing a digitally-created fleet of passenger jets crashing into the World Trade Center, you now get a black screen and the message, “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by DDB Brasil.”

Fortunately, we managed to save a copy before the clip was pulled. Click on the above video to get a sense of why the WWF and/or their ad agency wanted to pull this clip down. And if you’re coming in cold to this story, click here and here for our posts on what the hubbub is all about.
