Looks good. Silly, but it gains the viewers attention quite well. Made me think about where to put the thing in my house for just a moment. So I would say "mission accomplished".

If you ever see this product advertised on TV do NOT buy it. It's pure junk though you'd never know it from the commercial. It's actually inflatable and made of crap vinyl. Manufacturing cost is $11 per unit (in China). But if you call now we'll make you a special once in a lifetime deal for only $99! And we'll even throw in this sporty carrying case! A $50 value! blah blah...

Too long maybe

I think you need to get to the product sooner or you'll lose people. Just my opinion.

Thanks Paul. I trimmed it down a bit. It's shorter now. Btw, it's a 30 minute commercial...

Very nice ...

Although the lighting kudos you referenced could be accomplished quite easily. The highly directional single source 1 or 2k flood could have been a tad bit more subtle.

Otherwise, the content is perfect!
