This commercial bothers me every time I see it.
Watch it, then I will share my irritation with you:
See the lightbulb the guy is holding? It’s one of those abominations-of-environmental-insanity-dogooderism-gone-wrong compact flourescents. I HATE those bulbs. The light sucks, you can’t dim them, they flicker when they come on and take a few minutes to come up to full strength. I hate them.
So, the thing that bothers me about this commercial? Did you see how fast and perfectly the lights in the ceiling went on? Just like a buttload of my beloved incandescents. They turn on all the way right away and give off REALLY pleasant light. There is no way that’s a ceiling full of stupid CFs.
I looked at the bulbs and they seem to be the basic shape of the blasted and satanic CF bulbs, but I’m telling you, they came on too fast and not a one of them flickered. They were NOT CF’s.
Soon the king of lighting, my beloved incandescents will be discontinued. And those stupid idiots wasted a ton of them on that stupid green commercial. Arrrrgh!
