The Beauty of Television

I saw a new weightloss commercial the other day. You've seen the one with the animated lady and her husband? They both quit drinking sodas, he shrinks to almost nothing and she actually balloons larger.

I saw a new pencil drawing for a new product. It's just a lady talking about how this new drink supplement helped her lose weight. Get this at the bottom of the screen is this disclaimer.

"Cartoon weight loss not actual results. Real people require diet and exercise to lose weight."

WHAT THE @%$#?

I know that some advertising is misleading but to out and out lie? OMG! What is wrong with people these days? Is there no limit as to at least a sliver of truth is advertising a product?
