    Sorry if this is the wrong forum, I'm new here, but this has been bugging me for years now.

    I seen this commercial on "Cartoon Network". I finished playing it's predecessor on my PS2 prior to seeing it so it was pretty ironic. I can prove it exists by my exact location at the time: I was (and currently am) living in Huntersville, NC in a neighborhood called "Shepard's Vineyards". My uncle was staying with me at the time so I had my console in my folk's room. Their bedroom was small: their huge black "SANYO" TV was on the center right of their room along with my console; the bathroom entrance was on the right as well; their bed was bottom left of their room; the bathroom walls was pink with their toiletries and the nightstand (which is important)with a lamp on it was to the left of their bed.

    Anyway, so when I was done playing Sonic Riders, I switched the input from video to TV. I just caught the ending sequence of Courage (where he takes a bow) and the CN interstitial. I think it was still CN City as I remember a commercial in said house where Andre and his students were dancing in a park (the promo for "Class of 3000"). After that, the commercial. I will only tell you what I know I saw.

    So without further ado, let's begin:

    Scene 1: I misremembered this scene, but now I'm certain of it. Sonic was wearing his new extreme gear getup and riding his new board (blue star?). Sonic was on the bottom left of the screen along with the riders on the right of the screen. There's turbulence behind them. The location was in a tunnel with gray arches and floor with an orange sky. The announcer sounds like the one from the first commercial (which I'll link for reference) and he said something about "zero gravity" (I think that's the tag-line of the game).

    Scene 2: The ending was a black screen with the box-art to the left and the consoles on the right.

    I'm almost positive to say that the music was upbeat and had no lyrics.

    Remember how I said the nightstand was important? I saw the commercial at night. After it aired, I ran to my sister and mom (Who was in the living room) and told them. I only saw it once. I didn't have the internet on my PC at the time.

    Here's the things that are NOT it:

    The trailers:

    This blatantly fake commercial (it says so in the description):

    And here's the commercial I promised I'll put here as reference:

    Sonic Riders commercial:

    I asked this all over the internet: Reddit.com (/r/TOMT and /r/TOMTcoldcase), "Shaodw Of A Hedgehog", "Arcihve.org", "SBMania.net", "Sonic REtro", "Sonic Stadium", etc.

    I saw it very early 2008. I was 11 at the same and I usually have great memories of homeschool.

    Please help me out. I want to offer a reward, but at the same time not. I'm saving my money for college and stuff.

    So I asked Aaron Webber (head of Sonic PR) on his livestream for charity, and he confirmed it and he'll check.
