Hughes and Kettner, BadCat, and others, particularly in the boutique range. The amps sound so good... but look SO cheesy!
Because people want them. It's pretty easy, cheap, advertisement, as well.

Sure I can. Looks dumb. Blackout on stage during a rock gig, and you've still got this bright, gaudy "Matchless" sign. Doing any sort of gig that doesn't put the guitarist in the spotlight (theatre gigs, TV gigs, etc) you'd have to cover the distracting light with tape or just not use the amp. I've seen people have to do that with the jewel light or bright LEDs.
