Haha! I really like this commercial, it was very unexpected. The times when it showed the laps point of view made me feel bad for it. When it was leaving its "home" and when it saw the new replacement lamp in the window were the best because it made you feel like the lamp had feelings and it was really sad. The music selection is also really important because it set the mood as being sad. The over the shoulder shot of the lamp looking at the lady go back into the house was also really interesting.

I thought this was a very intresting commercial! But it did have alot of good angles and I liked how they showed some of it as the lambs point of view. There was some parts in the commerial were it maybe could of used a little more light also. I thought the music in the background fit in very well it didnt take over the whole commercial. I also liked how they showed the new lamp in lady in the window if gave the commercial a little more affect on what was happening.

This commercial was pretty funny in my opnion! It had some really great camera angles. When the lamp was on the street "looking" up at the window, I thought that was really good angle because you felt like the lamp looking up. Also, when the girl put the lamp outside the behind the should shot was good. The music also went along with the content and showed the mood well. The ending was suprising! -Molly (I couldn't get it to post so I had to go anonymous!)

I enjoyed this commercial because there were several very good camera angles. I liked how it did make you feel as though the lamp had feelings. I think the mood was set by the music, lighting, and the different types of angles. It was funny how the man at the end came in and told you to stop feeling bad for the lamp because it didn't have feelings, because it sort of made you feel silly for feeling bad for the lamp!

I Thought this commercial was very interesting! They used all they could to make you feel bad for the lamp with the sad music, the lamps point of view, and others shots of it sitting out in the rain and then looking into the house seeing the new lamp. They made you feel sorry for a lamp which is hard to do because its a lamp so that was pretty impressive. They also added a little humor at the end with that guy talking in a weird accent which i thought was kind of funny!

I thought this commercial was really funny and kinda of a weird but cool idea. There wasnt much for digital affects, but there was alot of good angles and lighting shown in the video. I the apartement they used back light on the girl to make it look more attractive to the eye. I liked it when the lamp was outside and it when it rained, it made the mood sad. The music went well with this section to. I liked how at the end when the man was talking, they had a light glaring on the man, but no lighting in the background.

I actually really like this commercial, I found it really interesting. I actually caught myself feeling bad for the lamp and I can tell that is what they wanted. They accomplished that with the camera angles that they used, they really utilized the perspective camera angle of the lamp. The music was also a key in this commercial, it really set the tone. The lighting to, I thought that when they set the lamp out in the rain looking into the window where the new lamp is was really clever. The old man at the end was really pretty fun to, he took the mood from being really sad to comical.

In this commercial, there were many things that I enjoyed! Things such as good camera angles and the lighting. It was really cool too how the lamp seemed as though it had feelings. To make a fictional item come alive is a really cool task to accomplish! The guy's accent at the end set the mood of the videos humor to! Finally, the background music was very well planned out.

This is a really cute and funny commercial! It was really good with the camera angles and the music to actually make you "feel bad" for the lamp. But at the end, it makes you realize that it's just a lamp and that the new one is so much better. Just making people realize those different feelings and everything was good. I also like how they transitioned from sad to a little bit humorous. I think the best angle in the video was the over the shoulder of the woman then the same angle on the lamp. It gave visuals of the different perspectives.
