    If anyone had a full version of the ET commercial, I'd like to see it!!!

    My relatives made this tape for our grandfather back in 1988 when he got a new VCR, and it wound up in our collection. We're not Star Wars fans, but this was a great find because of all of these great commercials!

    From the local CBS station in New York City, November 1988, the day before Thanksgiving.
