First and foremost one is that it is undoubtedly impossible to lose weight without having healthy diet and exercising. Secondly it is a time consuming ad. Additionally whenever it occurs in the middle of my favorite serial, it spoils fun and annoys me greatly.

Besides whatever is shown or told in the ad like, before and after pictures of people and pure ingredients is unreal according to me. So this is the advertisement I don’t appreciate at all.


Sample Answer 2


Well, watching advertisements is essential in order to stay updated on the latest products and services. Sometimes they are informative, while other times they are useless. However, today I would like to talk about a commercial that I didn’t enjoy.

Actually, it was approximately a year ago. I was scrolling through social media. An advertisement appeared out of nowhere. It was regarding weight-loss supplement. If I talk about duration, it was approximately 45 seconds. The advertisement claimed that it would help people lose weight quickly and easily without doing any exercise or diet.

The ad featured before-and-after photos of people who might used the supplement and lost a significant amount of weight. It was mainly targeting the working people who are obese, want to become fit but they are unable to manage because of their hectic schedule.

It didn’t sit well with me for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, it was non-skippable. Second, the advertisement implied that people could lose weight without exerting any effort, which is untrue. Furthermore, it was deceptive and dishonest. Overall, I would say that this was a period in which I encountered promotional but did not enjoy.
