When you have to sell a product, you will take whatever measures needed to make sure that advertising is memorable and makes sales. If your product is mediocre, then you really have to do what you can to ensure that people will buy your product. If you can’t sell the product using television ads or put in any more money to make sure that your product is of the highest quality, then you need to do what you can to sell it. Yes, it may end up making many people mad, and could end up in some returns, but you’ll count on the fact that most people don’t want to bother with the hassle.
What is described here is the trend of false advertising. False advertising can range from “bait and switch” to completely lying about what product is inside the package. While it is extremely risky to conduct business in that matter, there is sure to be trouble and public humiliation on the internet. When the customer sees what’s on the box, they expect to receive the product that’s on the box. The same goes for dating profiles, when a suitor is trying to find a date, and they will portray themselves in a certain light so that they are more appealing.

Whether it is receiving a completely different product, or the ad portrays something too big but it’s really too small, these advertisements don’t portray the real deal.
Companies will do whatever it takes to land a sale, even if it means stretching the truth about the quality of their product. From toys arriving too small to getting a completely different product, here are 10 hilarious examples of false advertising.
Every month, over 200 million people are forcefully telling the world that they hate online advertising. Is anyone listening? And more importantly, is anyone doing anything about it?

Seth Godin’s three essential questions for every marketer:
“What’s your story?”
“Will the people who need to hear this story believe it?”
“Is it true?”
All marketers tell stories. And if they do it right, we believe them. We believe that wine tastes better in a glass than a glass. We believe that an ,000 Porsche is vastly superior to a ,000 Volkswagen that’s virtually the same car. We believe that 5 sneakers make our feet feel better—and look coo
