As he silently reads the paper and eats his breakfast, he is surrounded by his wife and four or five teenage daughters who mill in and out of the room, all chatting and talking over each other and laughing.

Where can I find a (preferably downloadable) online copy of a recent TV commercial advertising a nuclear power company? I saw the ad all summer on CNN (United States) and I'm not sure if they're still running. The ad is a quirky animated piece showing the step-by-step process of nuclear energy, from mining to usage. It's presented in a 3D isometric perspective, similar to eboy/pixel art. I'd like to present it to a class I'm teaching, as the ad style liberally borrows from a Royksopp music video from a few years back. Thanks!

Where can I find a digital copy of this beer commercial: It starts out with our protagonist (I think it's Joey Slotnick) walking, and a voiceover -- "You're at a party. You've got a cold beer, and a brand new shirt. You're . . . a tiger." Then, he takes a sip of the beer and his face shrivels up, and a couple of girls cringe. "Whoa! Bitter Beer Face!" Then, that's solved by drinking Keystone Light, and then the scene switches to noir; he's in a white tux with his hair slicked back, both of the girls on his arms, and he says in a David Niven accent, "Pack your bags -- we sail TONIGHT!"

Does anybody know where I can get at a timeslot database for television commercials? (Preferably free or cheap). I'm not interested in viewing the commercials; I'm more interested in constructing bipartite co-occurrence networks between television programs. For example, I want to analyze what commercials are paired up with what other commercials (in that they air for the same shows), how many commercials share a given pair of programs, etc. -- and then making some inferences from the network.

I'm trying to get my hands on a TV commercial from a few years ago for some financial or business company, with a vision of a modern Roman Empire. What I remember: Caesar steps out of an SPQR limousine, illuminated by flashbulbs and surrounded by black-suited, earpieced Praetorian guard, then an image of a Roman New York, with a statue of Caesar instead of Liberty. Any pointers on finding this commercial? Also, are there any fictional works that deal with the what-if subject of the Modern Roman Empire? Thanks!
