Help me find this Coke commercial from the 80's!

Help me find this Coke commercial from the 80's! Someone I know starred in a "Coke is it!" commercial when he was a senior in high school (most likely in 1982). It was cast and shot entirely in Charleston, SC and featured beach scenes. His only description was "it was the opening of a beach house."

I bet coke has some kind of historian (they have a freakin museum, after all)...might be worth finding a contact via coke.com or linkedin or something and asking, if its important to them.

Is it this one?
[note that you have to change the resolution to 240p and hit play again]

Has Jobim's "Waters of March"-based jingle and a guy doing a barspin on a fixie in the 80's.

Also has some beach scenes.

World of Coke (the museum) can be reached at (404) 676-5151 or 1-800-676-COKE (2653); if it weren't after business hours I'd call them now myself because i'm curious but I'd bet they have a curator. I have not been in a while, but they have an area where you can watch & listen to TV & radio ads throughout company history.

Maybe this? It has beach scenes, though this is from the "Have a Coke and a smile" era, before "Coke is it."

Wow, so close! I'll give World of Coke a call later and see what they can find.

Thanks!
