I would imagine that for most people, advertisements simply don't work. We usually pick a product because we tried it somewhere else and liked it or a friend recommended it and so we start to use it. I, on the other hand, take advertisements very seriously...specifically the pictures.
Honestly: Which of these cats look happier?
See, some of these things are important to consider. For instance toilet paper, would you rather use angel soft and have a baby determine what kind of tp you should use or would you rather have quilted northern and have your grandma decide. I trust my grandma far more than a baby.
These are some things that you should consider the next time you go shopping.
