In my humble yet learned opinion the most ridiculous ad on TV at the moment is the moisturising cream that helps fight “The Seven Signs of Ageing”.
This doesn’t just prey on, but fully extends any fears you have of the entirely natural process of getting older.
Don’t think that just because you have a couple of wrinkles that you’re off the hook – there’s another 6 signs of ageing there for everyone to gasp at! And these are only skin related – they haven’t even touched on grey hair (that’s for a different market).
Quick Grandma, rub this on your face or everyone is gonna know you’re 92 years old!
I say wear your ageing like a badge of honour. It’s been a long road and I am amazed that anyone who has ever spoken to a teenager, would want to look like one.
Having said that, I did once have a momentary lapse of reason and purchased something called ‘Night Rescue for Men’ moisturising cream.
However, once logic and reason returned, I went back to good old Sorbolene.
