Advertising Hoodwinks

Honesty is most tested when it is least demanded. When I want to hear lies, I watch TV adverts; there are plenty for indigestion: an advert showing a man wearing a boxer short, jumping from a multi-storeyed building and landing perfectly in a car which is ready to be driven by a blonde. Wow, the girl is impressed with the man, thanks to that brand of boxer short. Another one: an array of brands of Ayurvedic products which claim to give you protection from diseases though I am not aware of any Ayurvedic doctor prescribing any such products.

Dark-complexioned woman becoming fair-complexioned in a span of 7 days; dirt is good, so wallow in a pool of muddy water if you happen to fall in it; children growing taller when they take a particular brand of health-food – an insult to our DNA; etc. And these adverts are endorsed by celebrities, with thousands getting paid in millions to create these true-lies in the name of marketing and millions spending billions to buy such brands.

When strength of reality is too weak to support a product, marketers rely on steroid-advertising. Alas, when will consumers have the realization?
