Advertising is all glitter and little truth.


  • Celebrities are promoting products which most of the time they don't use, so it's like cheating with viewers.

  • Advertisers have to depict what customers like, enjoy keeping in mind clients requirements.

  • As products increase and so the ads, glitter is a way to ensure brand recall, a very important factor for the advertising firms.

  • Most of the time companies over showcase their product qualities which is not fair.

  • There are lots of examples like a person eating a chew gum and becomes so cool that girls start following him or take example of a famous perfume, if guys use that perfume girls will start running behind them. All these ads are total fake.

  • Advertising is a business and not charity. Companies hire advertisers for promoting their products and it is not vice versa.


  • Advertising firms carry responsibility of providing customers with unbiased information about products.

  • In order to have a healthy bottom line the ad firms cannot shun their responsibility towards the society.

  • Ad firms have to develop ethical content to ensure fair deals.

  • There are advertisements available which show the notice that it is medically proven or they are having proof.


  • Advertisements are somewhat made to attract the customers and some time they might only glitter but sometimes they are true also
