Bogus Before & Afters

I am convinced that all before and after photographs on TV are bogus. 

Advertisements for the following are ridiculous:
  • Cellulite
  • Acne
  • Stretch Marks
  • Miracle Makeup
  • Diet Pills
  • Neck Fat
  • Baggy Eyes
  • Crows Feet
  • Hair Removal
  • Hair Growing
  • Weight Loss anything
  • Natural Tears
  • Bingo Arms
  • Miracle Foot Creams
The craziest part of all of these advertisements are the before and after photos.  Regardless of the product they are selling and what they are trying to "cure", they are all the same.  In every "before" photo they make the person look as ugly as possible.  The people never have makeup on, their posture is always awful, their clothes are frumpy, and they have a mean look on their face.  Then, voila!  They are instantly transformed into fully made up, happy, confident, people.  How bogus!

Don't even get me started on the other commercials for things such as the Ped Egg, Kangaroo Keeper, Hanger Cascader, and Pajama Jeans.  It's as if these people's lives were horrible and unbearable before they purchased these life changing objects. The utter disgust on their faces of life before the miracle are so hilarious I cannot look away when the commercials come on.  Surely they would never have lived such satisfying lives if it hadn't been for; "their smooth feet without the mess" or "their perfectly organized purses that allow you to move your contents in seconds" or "the hanger that will organize any closet disaster" or my favorite, "jeans you can exercise in."
