|Old Spice Commercial|
Remember this thing? https://vimeo.com/47875656 When I first saw it I didn't bother saving it or anything but I did enjoy messing around with the interactive player. I looked back on the waybackmachine and http://web.archive.org/web/20120828215116/http:// vimeo.com/47875656 it appears that the interactive elements, as well as the entire player itself, were done in flash. I was hoping that someone had put this on swfchan but apparently not. I don't know how soon the interactivity of the player died but the video does not load from archive.org in the present day. It doesn't seem like anyone has a proper public archive of the interactive part of that video, archive.org unfortunately can't download scripts or other flashes that the player loads to achieve this.
I guess the only options left are to find out whether someone has a copy that isn't public facing yet or ask the creators of that project whether they have a copy that they can send to one of us.

|I never knew vimeo had flash support, that's cool. Very sad that they just ditch flash and break stuff like this. I don't understand what's wrong with providing the old flash files as well as the new video version... Imagine if someone upload a PDF somewhere and then a few years later you find out they have converted all previously uploaded PDF files to JPG images because they decided that they don't like PDF anymore. Sigh. Hope the Old Spice Muscle Music is preserved somewhere, looks like a fun little thing to pass time for a few minutes. Something like that is worth preserving.|

Wow thanks! Vimeo never had true flash support, I was referring to their player which like most streaming websites loaded videos using flash. Old Spice made a deal with Vimeo to allow them to add a flash in after the video was complete. It's quite funny reading the press about it where people say Vimeo did something amazing that will change video streaming when it's done in a technology that's been around for more than 20 years at that point.
How did you find that file? I tried doing view source and searching for .swf which only got their video player. Did you guess a.vimeocdn.com/p/flash and go from there?
