This set of commercials is designed to create interest in the mundane world of light bulbs. The first explains how the lighting in your home affects the way you view the world. The second is for an Ecotone light bulb, which is long-lasting and energy-conserving. A voiceover explains that the children, shown asleep with the lights on, are ‘saving energy’ while using it. The third spot is for a Halotone reading bulb. The voiceover explains that if you read in bad light, your eyes get tired and sore. The last spot is for a bulb that provides soft diffused lighting. It shows a couple jumping on to a big, comfy sofa. The opening line, ‘light influences the way we act and feel’, and the endline, ‘Philips. Let’s make things better’, are repeated in each ad.
