Because if it's anything like these guys from the Streaks Show, it looks like it'll be an insane amount of fun. I mean, they used a seesaw to basically jump flip out of the world of physics and gravity and momentum.

Naturally, the funniest lightbulb ad ever stars Jeff fucking Goldblum

Kudos to General Electric for hiring actor Jeff Goldblum and directors Tim and Eric to make this hilarious commercial to promote their new LED lightbulbs. I'm a fan of Philips' LEDs but, after this, I will be checking GE again. Because I'm that easy to convince and it's Jeff fucking Goldblum, ok?
