Blowing Advertising Wide Open

| Learning | May 21, 2015

(We’re in a business law lecture, and our instructor is explaining false advertising.)

Instructor: “Of course, most ads are not intended to be taken literally, so people can’t take legal action when the product doesn’t deliver what was ‘promised.’ Let’s look at this one, for example.”

(He shows us a very old cigarette advertisement with the tag line ‘blow in her face and she’ll follow you anywhere.’)

Instructor: “So, we have this ad: “Blow in her face and she’ll blow in yours.”

(The whole class lost it, and the instructor was so embarrassed his assistant had to take over.)
