“Tim and Eric” directed this lightbulb ad for GE, starring Jeff Goldblum, and it's awesome

This commercial for GE Link Light Bulbs starring Jeff Goldblum was directed by Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, bizarro-discomfort comedy performers and directors best known for the Cartoon Network Adult Swim programs “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!,” “Check it Out With Dr. Steve Brule,” and “Tom Goes to the Mayor.” Tim and Eric and Dr. Steve Brule are currently on a sold-out US tour.

  2. I'm not a huge Tim and Eric fan, but I'd watch Jeff Goldblum do just about anything.... very funny!

  3. Please let this be their only commercial. I'm already ready to empty my bank account on light bulbs. If they advertise anything else it'll bankrupt me.

  4. usually i find tv commercials to be rude ineffective invasive relics of the in your face product pushing era with little value or impact on my actual purchasing.

    that being said, that was a pretty entertaining commercial, that I actually enjoyed watching, i loved it.
    it made me want their product...wtf? i thought i was immune to advertising, i guess no one is immune to the charms of jeff goldblum! smile
