So I read the Massachusetts attorney general's press release about the 
Aqua Teen Hunger Force lights:

The law is actually one prohibiting "infernal machines." No, I am not

Each dealt with an actual destructive device, and harmless LED 
advertisements don't seem to qualify. Here's my writeup of the situation:
