In the fall of 2005 my parents in Vermont lost power for three days as a result of a freak blizzard. The following year they invested in a generator. On the rare occasions it's been put to use, it powers about one-third of the house- it keeps the heat going, along with the electricity in the kitchen and....that's about it. And that's plenty because hey, it's for emergencies.
So someone explain to me why the people in this ad responded to losing power and having to switch to their EMERGENCY GENERATOR by USING AS MUCH ELECTRICITY AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE (I'm actually impressed that we don't see at least thirty cell phones being recharged during this massive party going on; was that scene just cut from the final version because someone said "maybe that's a bit much?") The drain that these idiots are putting on that generator is almost frightening- if they'll suck up this much juice when they are using their own gas to generate it, how do they behave when connected to the grid? It's like they are worried that people ten blocks away won't notice that they have power. Seriously, what the hell is going on here?
