Whoever is putting that much oil on a chain (in the photos) needs shooting! The amount of oil is way more important than what brand I'm afraid. Too much oil and it just attracts grit / dirt which prematurely wears out the drivetrain. Most of the time my chain is pretty dry, yet it stays clean and after a year it still hasn't hit .5 on the Park CC4 checker.  The informercial above might be useful for roadies who only ride in the dry and care about moar watts, but for mountain bikers, keeping the chain clean is waaaaay more important, especially with parts shortages going on. Want to be environmentally friendly, again don't put half a bottle of lube on your chain ;)
