Advertising is the art of making people believe that which is not true. And it is a fairly lucrative business, given that there are new levels of stupid emerging every day. Think about it, because it’s actually true! There are new products being created every day because there is a market for them. And even the most ludicrous merchandise can be managed to be sold at a profit.
Forget ridiculous for a minute, and think about some of the legitimate commodities which are used almost daily these days. If the truth were to be told, even these companies aren’t being totally honest with their consumers. We probably will never find out how they would truly advertise their products, but luckily for us, Quora users have taken the liberty to do so.
So, let’s have a look at honest adverts of a few famous companies.
