The Indian audience is quite impressionable, especially when it comes to advertisements. Over the years, ads have shown us a fair deal of nonsense. We have been fooled a lot. And like the fools they expect us to be, we have played right into their hands. So let's sit back and take a close look at the ads we are subjected to everyday and really think about what these ads actually mean.
Here's an insight that reveals 25 things that Indian ads have really taught us:
1. Fair skin is more important that your post grad degree.
2. Jewellery can make extremely awkward couples fall in love after arranged marriages.
3. All leading actresses like Kareena & Katrina have dandruff and hair fall issues.
4. Soft drinks can bring the hero out in you.
5. Mothers and daughters only talk about what hair products they use.
6. Better sanitary pads are your shortcut to confidence.
7. Mangoes can be sexy!
8. Lab coats = experts. No matter what the field is, they all wear lab coats.
9. Special effects in shampoo ads are ridiculously better than Hollywood movies.
10. If your toilet isn't clean, a TV crew will burst into your house and point their camera at your commode.
11. Hot girl coming out of the water is a synonym for good cement. Ohh sorry... Super Cement!

14. Shampoos have more fruits and other ingredients than a mixed fruit juice.
15. All dental brands are No. 1 and recommended by all dentists in our country.

17. When you have a chocolate, you have to slather it all over your face first.
18. Paan masala can get you all the success you need in the world.
19. Also, almost every SUV in the world can be used for off-roading. And also for smashing through walls.
20. Also, you will never have goitre, because every toothpaste has salt.
21. Brands like Bacardi and Seagram's only make music CDs, bottled water and golf accessories.
22. There are like 20 cars of the year.
