Up to 100% effective = doesn't work

No other product works better = they are all the same

8 out of 10 women agreed = we kept asking groups of ten will we found these mugs

My dentist said = some actor said

I haven't watched a TV advert since our Enry was splashing it all over many moons ago, i hate commercial radio with a vengeance and never watch any TV live, i guess this thread is not aimed at me. :laugh8:

Scientifically formulated - knocked up by somone who got an 'ology.

believed to support the immune system = no evidence it supports the immune system

Traditional cure = not used for generations

A favourite one of mine is:

Up to 60% off Everything! = One item has 60% off, everything else has very little off at all

No added sugar = already got s**t loads in
Low fat = its got slightly less fat than normal
CILLIT BANG = no better than any other cleaner(don't you just want to punch him)
Low Calorie = its got 1 gram of fat less in the recipe therefore its Low Calorie

What really bugs me is when they say "UP TO 100% BETTER/CHEAPER/FASTER "etc.
So, theoretically, it could be as little as 1 or 2%...

People are gullible to clever advertising, sad thing is it is the poorer less educated people who fall for it. You don't have to look any further than bottled water to see how influential clever marketing can be.

Renovation Sale,
Closing Down Sale,
Boxing Day sale and the saga continues.
Closing down sale is a cracker I used to do business with a guy, who's window was just white out with closing down sale painted in red, it was like that for years.
Another good one is 'buy now interest free for two years' try and explain to punters to go to the bank and ask for an interest free loan for two years. (The interest was built in at 9%)

Anti-wrinkle cream, new and improved - these creams have been 'improving' for 50 years! I'm surprised anyone has a wrinkle these days!

Razor now has 2 blades... 3 blades... 4 blades... 5 blades... - Just how many blades do you need to have a shave? Oh aye, it's one!
