I haven't seen the ad, but I suspect the video clip in question is
the one in Microsoft Encarta - the CD-ROM encyclopedia. It is not
a real spectacular clip (not enough fps), but I suppose it makes a
good video-bite for a fast-paced TV advert. There are some other
CP featured in Encarta - I just can't remember if any of them were
correctly identified!

Isn't nature wonderful?
