Also, the message is incredibly muddled. I can't tell if they were trying to sell something, or promote visibility in general. Also, the fact that they clearly had to doctor the video of the lamp in order to make it visible kind of makes it obvious that the light still isn't doing all that much. He's talking about wearing "high powered" 105 lumen lights. For daytime visibility, IMO 250 or so would be minimum, I'd want 500.
But in my experience he'd be better off ditching his team jersey and wearing something ANSI yellow instead of strapping a crappy little light on his helmet, especially since it looks like all the lights he has on in that video point forwards, and it looks like the accident he had he got hit from behind.
