Bell's - the Christmas ad that got away.

And that's one of the ads that got away. I never managed to find it. It is the Bell's whisky Christmas ad.... The ad was incredibly simple. At night, a is pouring a glass of Bell's in front of a snowy window (we only see his hands though). In the distance we hear the church bells chiming, and the voice over goes: "what would Christmas be without Bell's". The ad would only run on Christmas week in the mid 80s on TeleLiban, but that was enough for me to remember it. Pity I could not find it anywhere.
