* Creator/RussellBrand would also use this trope frequently. Made all the more visible by that he'd only really be doing it to make a NobGag. On a show about BigBrother.

** By calling a lava lamp and plasma lamp are you using a downplayed version of this trope, or are they really called plasma lamps somewhere?
