Inspired by the iconic scene from the movie where E.T. makes Eliot’s bike fly, Firebox is selling this officially licensed E.T. Moon Lamp. It features a moveable silhouette of Eliot and E.T. against a lit full moon. Just thinking of the scene still brings a tear to my eye. Mostly because it reminds me of those horrible government agents almost killing E.T.
Honestly, there are few things I dreamed about more as a child than meeting an alien friend who could make my bike fly. I can thank E.T. for that. I can also thank E.T. for all the cuts and bruises from trying to make my bike fly without befriending a telekinetic alien first. Stupid gravity.
Powered by two AAA batteries (not included), you can put the lamp absolutely anywhere without the limitations inherent in power cords and electrical outlets. Am I going to use double-sided tape to stick one to the dashboard of my car? Please, does E.T. love Reese’s Pieces?
