If you're going to say "done" at least put a link, or name the ad it was done in.

It's a bad translation.

Ecole superieure means superior school, as in school of higher education. So a college or university.

But I kind of like the idea.

Don't know why everyone says it's rubbish.

To me, the ad gives the impression that the light gives off heat like the sun, thus producing a flame when directed through a magnifying glass. I just think it is the wrong overall approach and a bit forced.

Like it, it may be an old idea but still made me smile.
I really wouldn't want to stand in front of it tho.

What can you say about a torch? It gives off light. You want a good one,this is the most powerful torch you can get, as implied by the visual. Job done. And done well.

As for the seen it before guys, do you really spend all your time studying ad mags and annuals from around the world?

When I do an ad, I can't be bothered to check if a similar concept was used 3 years ago in Finland or last year in Tonga.
