McDonald's Running 'Original Olympics' Woman in Labor Ad

A reader reports having seen an Olympics related McDonald's ad that incorporates giving birth and the tagline, "The Original Olympics."

I heard a rumor that McDonald's has an Olympics themed commercial featuring pregnant women and women in labor under the banner 'the original olympics' referring to giving birth. I haven't seen the ad -- report came from WI so maybe its more localized -- but I thought it was an interesting take. Reportedly doesn't feature any food products, etc.
Has anyone seen this or have more info on it?

UPDATE: Answer in Comments thanks to Durinda.

I have seen the ad, and I actually found it quite beautiful, especially the way the images of the women interact with the background piano music. In fact, I've been trying to locate a site that offers a clip of the ad for download. If anyone knows of such a site, a link would be greatly appreciated.
