On the second drawing found behind this fourth gate you will see the initials 'AT.' If you select these letters with your remote control and press 'Enter' you will get to see another spot.
Now go to the 'Production Notes' which includes a credit screen as the last page. On this page, hit the 'Up' arrow key on your remote control and you will get access to yet another TV Spot.
