The humorous but practical Johnny Light, an automated night light for the commode, joins much more luxurious and exotic fare as a clebrity gift bag item for one of the hottest Academy Awards viewing parties in Hollywood on March 5 -- "The Night of the 100 Stars Oscar Gala" at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Surprisingly, the humble bathroom gadget has its own legion of fans and is no stranger to the spotlight or to celebrity attention.

Hollywood, CA; Dallas-Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) February 24, 2006 -- One of the hottest celebrity Oscar parties in “Tinseltown” on Sunday (March 5) will be “The Night of 100 Stars Oscar Gala” at the Beverly Hills Hotel. And one of the coolest items in the gift bags received by many of the 200 Academy stars in attendance will be the hilarious, but practical, Johnny Light™.

The patented Johnny Light, a soft green night-light activated by a gravity switch when the commode seat is raised, is available nationwide in a leading home improvement chain, by phone at 888-566-LITE (5483) and online at http://www.johnnylight.com . The device, manufactured by Johnny-Light, Inc. of Burleson, TX, costs under $14 and promises to end "the battle of the sexes" in the bathroom, to jumpstart romance, enhance gender respect, improve personal hygiene and increase women's and seniors’ safety.

“For sheer glitz, we may not be on par with the glamorous jewelry, a day at the spa or an acre on the moon that the celebs also will receive on Oscar night,” said Bill Bradford, co-inventor of the gadget and company CEO. “But I guarantee we will be the most unforgettable, the most useful, and much less expensive than a relationship counselor or physical therapist. More than 150,000 customers can’t be wrong!”

Originally intended as a gentle reminder to boys and men to “put the seat down,” the Johnny Light resolves the long-running household debate: lid up versus lid down. It helps women avoid the embarrassing, humiliating, enraging “splashdown” and prevents injuries to older persons who can break their hips when falling into a toilet bowl. Parents also report that toddler boys not only pick-up potty training more quickly, but bathroom clean-ups are reduced.

The Johnny Light is no stranger to celebrity. It has been seen on the Regis, Howie Mandell and Leeza Gibbons shows; touted as a wedding gift on “NBC Today”; reported on “CBS World News Overnight,” and been covered by Mademoiselle magazine, and such diverse media as a Scandinavian periodical, Canadian bridal magazines, a Japanese blog, the U.K-based Granada TV’s “Denis Norden’s All New 12th Laughter File” and a nationally syndicated country music radio show.

‘No. 1 Oscar Party’

Norby Walters, well-known L.A. super-agent, reprises his role as Producer and Dinner Chairman. This formal sit-down dinner viewing party has always included past Oscar winners and nominees paying tribute to their favorite award ceremony. The media has always rated this event as one of the top three parties. The Los Angeles Daily News has rated the event "... the No. 1 Oscar party just for the sheer number of celebrities attending....”

Hollywood Connection, which is coordinating the official celebrity gift bag for “The Night of 100 Stars Oscar Gala,” will have a Product Showcase room that will be visited by celebrities attending the event. The film stars and movie idols get to see the products displayed and often invite a “hands-on” experience.

“The Johnny Light is so delightful, as well as practical, I’m giving one to my father (actor Ernest Borgnine) for Father’s Day,” said Nancee Borgnine. “The humorous 60-second video at the website and the music jingle also had me laughing right out loud.”

The Johnny Light fits 94% of American commodes, requires no tools to install and sells for $10 to $13 nationally in more than 1,000 stores of a major home improvement chain, as well as at upscale lighting stores. The U.S. price is $12.50, including batteries, plus a $1.50 one-time shipping/handling fee (U.S. only), even if multiple units are ordered. Delivery requires two to three days.

Tests indicate a set of batteries (2) lasts up to six months with typical use or provides light for six straight days. The unit tucks in a sanitary position, "out of harm’s way" from splashing and contamination. It casts a soft green glow in the toilet bowl that's easy on sleepy eyes and gives cleanliness a chance.

Sales typical increase around Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, the Yule and Valentine seasons. The product also is turning up as birthday and housewarming gifts, as wedding favors, at bridal showers and bachelor/ bachelorette parties, and at new apartment and dorm move-ins or for housewarmings..

The Johnny Light can “light the way to family harmony” all year long, Bradford contends. “It preserves dignity and creates household peace. “Potty politics has been a subject for poets, fodder for advice columnists and even lyrics for songwriters.” Nationally syndicated singer/ comedienne Kacey Jones of Nashville, TN (http://www.kaceyjones.com) who recorded “Put the Seat Back Down” has also endorsed the product.

“You can't monogram or engrave it, but I guarantee it will be a memorable gift,” Bradford emphasizes. “The green light means ‘go’ for males and ‘watch out below’ for females. Its glow warms the heart of every person who has suffered a cold, wet indignity. Any person who gives or installs one wins both laughter and instant favor from his or her loved one -- sibling, friend or lover. It says, 'I respect you'."
