Ads can be deceiving
Ads make a product or service seem amazing but when you go out and buy its crap. Some examples of this are fast food ads on t.v., magazines, and newspapers. Like Burger King or MacDonald’s have commercials for their burgers that look amazing and the burger is plump and juicy, but when you buy it, the burger is flat and dry. These ads are very deceiving and the site, http://www.thewvsr.com/adsvsreality.htm, shows the ad and then shows what the food really looks like when you go out and buy it. I just realized that the site has food ads at the top and bottom of the pages, haha. The food may look amazing, but nine times out of ten, you will get something that looks completely different than the ads. Also, car ads on Auto trader or E-bay show pictures of cars that look clean and in good condition, but when you go to test drive it, the car has problems starting or you’ll find something wrong with it. You will also find scratches that you don’t find in the pictures or ads. Those ads are also deceiving. Another type of deceiving advertisement is infomercials. Almost everything costs $ 19.95 which seems like a good deal to some. When one sees the commercial, he or she might be amazed by the product and how it can make their lives easier. But when you buy the product the thing breaks or doesn’t even get the job done. I actually have an experience with buying something, a product that was on t.v. I bought this thing that would pop dents out of cars. So I tried it on my car and instead of popping the dent out right away, you had to wait a few minutes to pop the dent out. The thing just made the dent smaller until it couldn’t pull it out anymore. It wouldn’t even get the entire dent out. That was my first and last experience with infomercial products. If the ad looks too good to be true, then it probably is. My message is: don’t be easily fooled by ads and don’t buy products on infomercials.
