Give me a break!

I was traveling to teach the Financial Freedom Experience this weekend, and I heard a radio commercial about make-up.

The voice-over person said, "Discover how our make-up can change your life."

Really?  It can change my life?

Wow.  I am going to go order a bucket of it now.

Readers:  What other outrageous claims have you heard as part of product/service marketing?

    Yesterday, I was watching TV and they were running an infomercial on helping you get rid of your old “ugly car”. They told me what a hassle it was to have an extra car, how trying to sell it was more trouble than you wanted to deal with, and how they would buy it on the spot. Wow. What an awesome ripoff er, service!

    This is an outrageous commercial.

    Disclaimer — no old people were hurt in the filming of this commercial

    I think about 80% of commercials are stupid waste of advertising dollars anyway, but the ones I despise the most are the ones about ED and the people who are so happy about their genital herpes.
