Michael Learmonth of Advertising Age has just reported that "Reckitt Benckiser is pouring nearly $40 million into web video in 2010, thought to be the biggest single buy for the medium." Okay, I wish that I'd gotten this scoop, but I've got to tip my hat to Ad Age.

According to Learmonth, Reckitt Benckiser "is essentially doubling-down on its 2009 campaign, which was also at the time the biggest yet for web video at an estimated $20 million. New for 2010: The buy is going global, and YouTube is participating."
