Ads for drugs today are kind of silly. Ads for erectile dysfunction, for example, are weird geological changes happening in real time that end up with a couple sitting in bathtubs in a forest somewhere, instead of being about what men really care about – banging their wives when they couldn’t do so before.
And other products have 5 seconds of benefit followed by paragraphs of disclaimers about side effects ending with “see our ad in GOLF magazine”.
Golf magazine must be read solely by really, really ill people.
It wasn’t always like that. Ads used to be ridiculous exaggerations and downright funny. Got cocaine and you will sell it to kids? Let people know!
