Where can I find old New Jersey tourism commercials?

I'm working on a video project in which I need footage from old New Jersey TV commercials. They were spots run by the state tourism council in the '80s featuring then-governor Thomas Kean. The ad centered around the slogan "New Jersey and You: Perfect Together," and the message was delivered by Kean himself.

My usual sources for television ads, along with the NJ Tourism Board, Historical Society, and State Archives, haven't been able to track the spots down. I'm coming up against my deadline. Anybody know where I could get a copy of the Kean ad(s)?

i bet if you email the tourism board they'd send some. (he was so goofy in those)

Bizarre that those sources haven't turned it up. Shortsighted they were not deposited with the state archivist, and more so that they were presumably eventually destroyed or lost. What about the Newseum or Museum of Television and Radio, Museum of Broadcast Communications, and other places that might have them, even buried inside long-form broadcasts? University archives?
