    We were excited to be bringing you the first glimpse at a Motorola Droid Bionic Video commercial, but for some reason, shortly after it was posted, YouTube pulled the video for violating their TOS agreement. Someone took a screen-grab of the video and that is the picture above. Because it was pulled, there is no telling if it was for real, or some sort of fan-made clip. Interestingly, another screen-grab was taken at about the 30 second mark of the video where a QR code popped up briefly. Here it is below to get the speculation running.

    [Update:] Here is a link to a thread on BionicForums.net where Preach2k found a video of the video. It is a couple of places down in the thread: http://www.bionicforums.net/forum/droid-bionic-news/507-droid-bionic-commercial.html

    How can Moto release a video and youtube remove it? I mean isn't youtube owned by Google, and Google is trying to buy Moto?
