Two different versions of Ask.com tv commercial?

Okay, I've seen this ad a few times this week, and I swear they have two different versions. It shows this guy singing about how he found what he wanted, and there are all these women running/dancing around with swords. At the end it says in the search box "babes with blades". That is the one I've most often seen, but I SWEAR I have also seen it where the search terms are "chicks with swords". The only reason I remember those search terms was because that phrase sounded kind of sexist (at least more so than "babes with blades").

Am I dreaming this? The "babes with blades" was on a major network while I think the "chicks with swords" was on USA (maybe during The 4400?).

I have definitely seen the "chicks with swords" version. I haven't seen "babes with blades".

I believe the babes started a write-in campaign saying "chicks" is insulting and forced them to change it to babes.
