Those tests are real cute but when are you gonna drive a 4 ton truck on a high bay fixture let alone Jessica or Cedric jumping on one while suspended.

I guess there have been epic structural failures of the "leading LED high bay" tha convinced someone to construct one that a tank could park on.

For what possible reason are they obscuring the FORD logo? (Unless they're afraid Chevy would use the video to prove a Ford can't even crush a piddly light fixture.)

That's exactly what I was thinking. Show me that the driver will outlast anything else 2 to 1, or the lumen output is 50% greater than anything else of the same size....things of that nature. Then I'll be impressed.

Cool... Now they should do a real test, take some tard, put him in a forklift and let him do what forklift drivers do. Snag one light, drag the whole row down and take down all the MC cable with it and keep on driving through the factory smacking the lights on every object.

Reminds me of the old Masterlock adverts where to demonstrate how tough it was, they shot it and it stayed closed. Well, of course it stayed closed, you just jammed the mechanism into a huge glob of steel and lead!

You want to convince me, put the fixture in an oven at 175° and 99% humidity and show me how long it operates under those conditions.

Big Ass fans are pretty cool though; however some reason (mechanical failures?) we've been installing Rite Hite instead recently...

Don't know about you fellers, when I hang a high bay fixture 20+ feet in the air they are subject to truck traffic all the time. My last customer just couldn't keep the local dance squad off them.

Holy shít I just spit out my dinner laughing. And people probably think we're joking when we say stuff like this

These types of adds are designed to appeal to the gulible masses,
And theirs plenty of them around !
To me I would be more worried about light output and life span
and of course cost !

From a 14' dia. fan to a standard size high bay? I am unimpressed.

What makes it a "Big Ass Light"?

I like watching Jessica's boobs jiggle as she jumps up and down on the light.

Going with the company name I would think. Big Ass Fan >> Big Ass Light.

I would have went with Bright Ass Light.

I M O , this is a completely stupid commercial .

Obviously aimed at feeble minded rubes that get a kick out of destroying
things .

Do we really need to see how a piece of equipment is dangerously destroyed !
