Not impressed. It has co-opted then despoiled Pixar's Luxo Jr http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvCWPZfK8pI for a noble purpose let down by shitty stop motion, a cack-handed call to action, in a cobbled-together idea blown out of the water by a spot 25 years its junior.

I'll translate then: "It was a good idea when it was somebody else's."

are you comparing 3D to stop motion? really?

No. "Really" what I'm doing is comparing this execution of giving lamps personalities to an earlier execution that did it perfectly. The type of animation wasn't my point - though it is pretty bad stop motion. The point was that they took a cute piece from animation's canon and fucked it up the ass. Is all.

Is it sick to say that I am kind of aroused?

Nothing else even comes close since Spike Jonez' wonderful IKEA lamp spot, certainly not this butchered spot.

I'd agree with you on that. But then I'd probably change my mind and go with my original vote for the Pixar spot.

Funny, but it is not effective in terms of getting the message across. The ending sucks.

I remember the idea to thus use lamps was used in old Soviet reel.
