Trying simple animation for Bubble Trouble cover

I’ve managed to get the cover of Bubble Trouble to reproduce a simple animation, but have had no success in adding animation to MSWord for ebooks published on Smashwords.

Mark Coker of Smashwords advises me that animation would be messed up by their meatgrinder even if I were able to get MSWord to accept animation.

This is the animated cover I’ve uploaded to Smashwords, which at Smashwords you have to click on to animate. You may have to click on this image for animation sometimes.
