  • I am usually conscious of the fact they are trying to present their product in the best possible light and how they make a point to try and cast attractive, happy looking people to promote their product.

    I kunda see advertisements mainly for their entertainment value and maybe to get me initially interested in a product, but most of the time I like to look for reviews before purchasing.

    The one exception would be food commercials. With those my mind instantly jumps to "damn that looks good/I am so hungry right now"

  • I don't Lilly... I'm a marketeer myself (though not actively doing it in my job today) so I know the tricks. Some marketing messages are true but don't believe them - there are often vital pieces of info that are not given.
    Moreover, many marketing messages are destined to increase brand awareness... but the fact a brand name is recognized does not say anything about the quality of the product :o

  • I always believe advertisements when they are used to inform upcoming events (such as mall tours, concert dates, etc.)

    When they are used to promote products that are overestimated with lots of compliments, I find them hardly credible.

  • I usually don't. You always hear that same voice, no matter who the person is, that already makes me zap away

    • Or like during a fitness commercial. You see them smiling while working out... No. You shouldn't be smiling, you should be panting, show them that you got to work, that the equipment works, show that panting, that sweat.
      No they like smile like they're at the dentist and no sweat at all lol

    • I know, right? XD

  • What do you mean? Like, do I believe that cherrios are cereal? I mean I don't know how you can't believe in it 😑

  • Sometimes I subconsciously think to myself (I suppose) "Oh, this makes sense..." But I always remind myself either they're exaggerating or it's totally false...
    Or you can get the same or a better deal elsewhere...

  • I tend to record a lot of programmes and watch them half an hour later so I can skip ads. I would be very wary of TV ads.
