Boxster vs. 550 Spyder commercial...?

I wonder if it's possible to get a DVD, or a hi-res uncompressed video clip, of that Boxster vs. 550 Spyder commercial -- you know where the guy wakes up from a fifty year coma and thinks everything is "same old, same old" and decides to take his 550 on a spin, and then when he sees the Boxster, they both go "holy smoke!"

I want it for my dad's birthday -- just to tease him and show that the Boxster design was actually derived from the 550, and perhaps I can put a stop to his insults that "it's no way you can tell which way that car will take off since the rear and front look the same."

Yep, that's the one. However, I need a DVD (or a hi-res digital clip) of it, so I can transfer it to PAL (my dad lives in Norway). By the way, here's a short version (only 30 sec.) of that 3:30 minutes commercial -- a lo-res YouTube clip (oh god do I hate YouTube!)
