I believe that a long time ago there was a commercial for ground fault
interrupters in which a young, bikini-clad woman jumped into an outdoor
swimming pool holding a hot 110VAC wire. I haven't seen her lately, and
still do not know if the video was a phony. Sometimes they write about
these commercials in trade magazines - like the article on how the wine
glass was REALLY broken in the Ella Fitzgerald commercial.
