Why did RED bulbs show up as Yellow in my music video

But my question is this, and I'm puzzled by it
At 38 seconds you will see a swinging light bulb in the picture and throughout the video.
The bulb was a 60 Watt RED incandescent bulb with a little blinker disc that I inserted into the socket. Actually there are two of these in the video - 2 red bulbs. and on top of this I used LEE red gels on most of the surrounding lights, so I would think this would help make the bulb more red (but that doesn't sound right does it)
The bulb showed up as Yellow and not red. I don't get it? I white balanced. Someone said it's the theory of luminescence, which i don't get.
Why would the bulbs show up yellow? Did the blinker make the color change, like a dimmer or intermittent fast dimmer on and off?
I shot this with a consumer 3ccd Panasonic $598 GS500 camcorder, so nothing fancy
Any suggestions or help on this would be appreciated. Thank you for your time. David
Here is the music video - note the bulb especially at 38 seconds swinging

So many variables... so little time.. in my opinion, you are lucky those globes appeared yellow. They give you 'color contras't. I would love them... accept them.. and be thankful they are there.

I think you're lucky dude. Although, I couldn't bare to finish the video, the bulbs looked cool.
