What we found out mostly was that "popular" advertisements were usually well-planned, with interesting plots and great graphics, but sometimes the product being sold would be made to look far better than the real thing. Then again, isn't that the point of advertisements? To sell the product?
Among the findings of our research, we found that only one out of three did not mislead the viewers. Therefore, the five of us realized the truth that advertisements were almost nearly always exaggerated to polish and hone the products that they sold, but, in essence, they are indispensible to modern day metropolitican life.
In conclusion, we think that viewers of advertisements should not believe the quality of the products just by watching the advertisement. Instead, they should try the product first before buying them. Actually, as a smart consumer, we should interpret advertisements as an introduction to a product. Advertisements are not to sell the product, but to tell us that there is this product. The quality of the product is not reliable in advertisements, therefore we should not believe advertisements.
