Methinks this "honesty" in advertising is quite bizarre. For example, the latest Rimmel London advert which has a (rather lovely) Sophie Ellis-Bextor trying to sell some mascara. The caveat at the bottom of the screen? "Filmed with last inserts and enhanced in post production". Errr, spot the problem with this picture?

In other news, I'm interested to hear (via Lu) that they've made it law in Brazil that banks have to answer the phone within 1 or 2 minutes, and cannot send you junk mail. What a simple but fab idea! Although it was probably due to some corrupt politician getting pissed off.

The iphone advert has a similar disclaimer, saying things were sped up for the purpose of the ad.

Heh, that's a bit cheeky as well!

It certainly is!

It's good to know that the advertisers are being picked up on these mistakes though and they're having to display clearly that things are not real on the adverts.
