Why you should buy

With neon, you could place signs or just have bright lights in your house. You could light up the whole world with the harnessed energy of neon. All your friends will be jealous of how bright and attractive your house is. Are you scared of the unknown? Not anymore, because the bright lights of neon can keep those creepy unknown creatures away from your house. If you owned a store or restaurant then neon will catch customers attention and bring them in.
