These two I heard on radio ads. Those of you thinking of advertising as a future career, do me a favor please and don't make these mistakes. Careful attention to detail could have prevented this.
A weight loss company posed this question as its opening line: Are you a man or a woman who needs to lose 20 pounds or more? Who else does this company think is listening to the radio? Bears? Tigers? Space Aliens?
An ad for a local hospital ran this one, again as an opening line: Pregnant moms expecting a bundle of joy... Repetition in an ad does not a good ad make (neither does this comment I added, so you should get my point!)
