THE DANGER OF BELIEVING IN ADS
This classic advertisement from the early 20th century shows how crooked companies have exploited people.
It is an ad. for a tobacco cigarette and they sell on its “Asthma curing abilities.”
Ooh! But they are considerate …. It is not recommended for children under 6!
And the kicker: It is called DOCTOR BATTY’S. Exploiting the trust consumers place on the word “Doctor”.
MORAL OF THE STORY:
Don’t trust commercial speak.
Know their motives.
And on the same vein, if you come across a study, check out who funded the study.
