If you check the vimeo link that belonged to The Future Children Project you'll find that the vimeo clip has been set to "Private" and the web site has been shut off. That's the web equivalent of pulling an ad.
The ad which received heaps of scorn here as well, was nearly universally lambasted by critics. It was the personal project of Jeff Goodby and Rich Silverstein, the founders of Goodby Silverstein and Partners in San Francisco.
The ad went viral quickly, mainly due to universal scorn and a slight resemblance to the children of the corn, showing up on sites like Adage, the Blaze, Huffington post and even Fox News. If attention moved product, or made people choose a specific name when voting, this ad was a wild success.
