Ding! BMW Lighter is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.

Real Lighter

I found a real lighter on Ebay, so I'm not sure what "no physical counterpart" means. - Dr Haggis - Talk 20:19, 26 Feb 2005 (MST)

Update: A quick search on eBay yields about 90 auctions for a BMW lighter currently. I wonder how many of these auctions would not even exist if it weren't for Homestar Runner? —THE PAPER PREEEOW 18:39, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, I actually bought one of these after Drhaggis brought it to my attention in February. I got one of the ones that looks like Strong Bad's and my plan was to take a photo for this page. The thing is pretty much just a silver colored Zippo ripoff with a BMW logo glued on it. I still want to take a photo, but I'd have to find the thing first. I thought I knew where it was, but I can't find it. Hmm. -- Tom 20:33, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I found a pic of a real BMW lighter, but, as I said, my **** computer won't let me upload images. — talk Bubsty edits 02:53, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

Image Overuse?

Are all these images really nessecary? Why not something like this or this? I think that the debut and CGI images are enough for this page. - Joshua 00:30, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Oh, my goodness, seconded! That's a long freakin' page for a 2"-square object! —AbdiViklas 01:10, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
The article is like this because back when it was started, there were only three appearances. I don't have a problem with the images. If you don't like the layout, we could probably but them in a nice gallery. -- Tom 01:53, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
