Top 10 Biggest Lies Ever Told By Major Advertisers
3. That L'Oreal's face cream will make you look as good as Photoshop can.
The U.K.'s Advertising Standards Authority banned this ad for being "misleadingly exaggerated" due to excessive photoshopping.
The same goes for this Julia Roberts Lancome ad. And Twiggy's spot for Olay.
2. That wearing sneakers makes you skinny.
Skechers' used celebrities like Kim Kardashian to shill its Shape-up sneakers, claiming that you only had to tie your shoes to lose weight.
1. That Cigarettes are good for your health.
Hard to believe, but there was a time when tobacco companies pushed the line that doctors approved of smoking or that certain brands were better for your throat than others.
This is just one of dozens of ads featuring doctors recommending or "preferring" one brand of smokes over another. No more.
