Those of you who read this column know that from time to time I write about TeeVee adverts. It seems as if some of the worst ones come out during the holiday season, many but not all connected with extracting money from you for gifts.
Before we get going on these new ones, please remember back a couple of months when I wrote about the Tide laundry detergent advert that featured the daughter asking her mum if the mum had seen her green shirt. The mum thought back to wearing it and stained it with food. Then she lied to her daughter saying, “Honey, that’s not my style”. This advert has been modified and now the mum says nothing to the daughter about it. I consider this a small victory for decency in advertising, and credit this column with at least a bit of influence. Thank everyone for the support.
