False advertising Tricking the consumer into buying something is way not cool.
You: Wait, you mean I don’t get free money, a free toe massage pass, or a free skillet?
Me: Well actually, the toe pass expired the moment you opened this post. Better luck next time! But, you can get your money and skillet in exchange for your full name, email, birth date, phone number, address, bank account number, and social security number! And you know what? I’ll even throw in a free trip to Hawaii for six nights and seven days! What do you say? Everybody loves skillets!
You: I don’t —
Me: Hey look at this game! It’s mighty fun, I guarantee it! Look at that Play Now! button! Click it, and you can have a new free, fun game!
You: But what if it downloads viruses —
Me: Buy this yummy bread spread now! It’s healthy and nutritious!
You: The nutrition label says it has 21 grams of sugar, 11 grams of fat, and 200 calories in only two tablespoons! The number one ingredient in this is sugar, and — by the name of Nutella, it tastes like chocolate!
Like I said,
false advertising tricking the consumer into buying something is totally not cool. Did you know that a cosmetic brand labeled “100% Natural” doesn’t mean it’s actually 100% natural?
And just because you paid an extra fifteen dollars on that expensive shampoo bottle that claims it’ll give your hair a smooth shine and luxurious volume, doesn’t mean that it actually will do so. And when it says that there are fruits and cocoa butter and what-not mixed with it, well maybe there is some.
A few drops of it.
Or at least so little that it’s the last ingredient listed on the ingredient label.
Such haggadary. People shouldn’t have to worry about these things in the first place.
