Help me find a 1990s Paxil TV ad.

I'm trying to find a TV commercial for Paxil that aired probably during the late '90s, but maybe during the early 2000s.

What I remember: In the commercial a woman stands outside a window, looking sad, watching a bunch of people who are having a good time. The glass is supposed to represent her social anxiety disorder, I think.

A little YouTube searching hasn't turned it up. I can keep looking, but is there some non-YT way to find these things? What did media-studies types used to do to find these things?

There are organizations that archive television ads, but you need to pay a seat fee for access to their databases.

This one? Starts similar.

MeFite dabitch runs AdLand.tv, where they have over forty thousand commercials from around the world. I didn't find it on the site, but you could ask over there for more ideas.
