I’ve been in America for a week, and I still cant help but laugh at the adverts on the TV. At home, we have adverts for everything; from insurance companies to supermarkets to clothes catalogues. Adverts are an annoyance; a break in the programmes we are watching and a chance to sell to us. I hate them.
But in America they are on a whole new level! First of all, they advertise for medicines; but in such a weird way. They sell it for about ten seconds, whether it be headache tablets or the contraception pill, and then they go on for about thirty seconds about all the possible side effects, including death. its brilliant!
Adverts like that would not wash in England. There would be support groups all over the place demanding that it be removed and loads of money be donated to a charity of their choice. Still, it makes me laugh!!!
