Anyone seen the Wendy's helium spot?

Haven't been able to find a copy of this new Wendy's spot that shows people breathing in helium and has now created a ruckus with the NIPC (National Inhalant Prevention Coalition). Just as it supposedly is with marijuana leading to hard drugs, the Coalition says that if people find that breathing in helium is so enjoyable they'll start to experiment with inhaling other, more dangerous, gasses. Not sure I quite buy the logic, but I'd love to post the spot. If anyone finds it, let me know. In the meantime, I eagerly await a lawsuit over the red wig from the Society for the Perpetuation of Pippi Longstocking. BUT, WAIT, THERE'S MORE: My wish was just granted, mere minutes after I posted this. You can see the spot at this MySpace link.

I have recently received an email from the NIPC, asking my support in the effort to get this Wendy's commercial pulled.
I have not yet responded because I wanted to see the commercial first.
Thanks to this blog, I finally got the chance to see it.
Not everyone watches TV very much.
Thanks from me too, Tim!
