Many advertisements these days are becoming more and more provocative. I am sure all of you have seen sex being used to sell products whether it is for a vehicle, fast food, shoes, etc. Is media going too far with this?
I recently have been hearing and viewing many newscasts and people talk about the new clearasil commercials. Clearasil's new slogan is "Clearasil may cause confidence". The clearasil company is using this slogan to promote their product in such a way that is making many people offended. I find these advertisements to be rather funny but it still is quite surprising to me how far Clearasil pushes it.
Here is a video I found on CNN discussing the controversy it is causing and the reactions from people. The video is almost 6 minutes long and shows a couple of the commercials. What do you think? Is this becoming a prevalent problem? Do you find these ads to be offensive?
