I still fail to understand what you’re trying to say. Yes I see @Bryn posted a link to the video I am referring to.

Yes, the source article linked to in the article here clearly refers to the video.

But it's not just the lava lamps bubbles but also the "noise" in the photographs that they're using, how is this different than radio static?
Cloudflare said the lights, blobs, and movements of the lava lamps are recorded and photographed, after which the footage is turned into “a stream of random, unpredictable bytes”.
That's not what the article claims. If it's the case then so be it but if photo noise is what they're using, which modern cameras are designed to limit, then I don't see the need to include the specifics about the lamps. It seems the lamp movements are the real source.
