LOLYea, right..fine! I wanna flashlight that will scare off those bad ol' muggers with the brightness of an atomic bomb! In fact, *I* think I'm gonna go save the neighborhood and shine it in all those drug dealers' eyes and take their money ("all for me none for you!") - and when they can see again? The POLICE will be right there with them!
I'm going to be The Hero Of The Swamp!
Stupid friggin' commercial. What a bunch nimrods! What idiots! If I want a flashlight, I'll use my telephone! Why do you think I have one?!

LOL
Yeah! This is a little over the top. A strobe light is going to scare off a would be robber or rapist? Sure it will! LOL
 
We don't even have a working flash light in the house. I count on this...

The power does go out here 2 or maybe 3 times a year. Not usually related to the weather.

^ I'm sure the flashlight is total crap.
 
Anyone want to wager whether or not "FMR Fighter Pilot" has anything to do with military service?
 
Clearly they expect us to read "FMR" as "former". 
Why not spell it out?  Why prop the actor in front of an F-16 fighter jet, if not to sell the lie?
 
Maybe "FMR" are the initials to a video game?
Whatever it is, I guarantee you it has nothing to do with aircraft or flashlights.
 
One big, fat lie.   And only 8 seconds into the video.  AngryAngry
Why should I believe ANYTHING that follows?

I still get a kick out of "this flashlight has 125 lux, this one has 5000 lux!" when lumens are what is used to measure how bright a light shines, lumens is how shiny something is. 50 bucks for a 1250 lumen flashlight is what really blinds people, and also doubles as a good club, and I've even seen some 1000 grades designed to be used as a bat for defense!

What I don't get is when the lady shines that flashlight in that guy's eyes. Sure it might stun him for a second but it's not mace, it won't have much of an effect after that. As for the next scene where some "suspicious" looking guy walk past that lady and she shines the light. She probably said, "don't mess with me, I have a flashlight!" Which the guy either says, "I don't want no trouble" or "I'm not gonna mug you now because of your stupidity."

I've got a club-like 225 lumen flashlight that runs off 3 C batteries.  In strobe mode I lit up the neighborhood on July 4th.  At close range, it will blind someone* long enough to get close and whack them with it.  (*Made the mistake of shining it into a mirror once...  LOL )

I love how the lady assumes the guy is going to attack as he's walking by. He probably thinks she's a jerk for flashing that atomic beam in his eyes.

If she did that in some neighborhoods, the guy would cap her ass and then pry her precious flashlight from her cold, dead fingers...  Shocked

Probably until right before you need to use it for defensive purposes.

I don't know who would reach for a crappie flashlight when being attacked. Most of the time you have to hit the button 3 times to get it to strobe. I can imagine the same type of person would also say time out during a attack so she get her flashlight to work right.

How does that saying go....?
 
"Never bring a flashlight to a gunfight."
 
Unless it's the Atomic Flashlight of course.
Then you can just vaporize your assailant with that super-bright beam.

Well, for starters, if I'm gonna carry a weapon for protection, I'm gonna carry a firearm, not a flashlight. THAT SAID, if for some reason I can't carry a gun or whatever, and I decide I'm gonna use a flashlight for self defense, I'm gonna carry one of those big Maglites. Forget the strobe, beating someone with one of those Maglites is pretty much the equivalent of beating them with a nightstick or truncheon.
