What you see is not necessarily what you get these days, especially when it comes to food. How many of you have gone to a MacDonalds, Burger King, Southern Fried Chicken, or whatever fast food joint takes your fancy and been more than a little disappointed with what you got for your money?
On the sides of leading fast food retailers delivery trucks are pictures of the juiciest, fattest and good looking burgers? They really do make me want to go out and buy one.
It looks absolutely nothing like the picture...
But every time I fall into this marketing void and purchase one of these burgers, more often than not it turns out to be some shrunken, flat, half cold pathetic looking thing with a wilting piece of lettuce stuck on top.
It looks absolutely NOTHING like the picture the advertising guys used! Any chance the photographer could take a couple of pictures of my wife for me?
Surely I would have learnt my lesson by now? Apparently I havent though, because the pictures always draw me back in the vain hope that one day, just maybe if I am really lucky, I might find that perfect fresh juicy burger just like the one I saw on the bill board! There ought to be a law against these kinds of advertising tricks, or at the very least they should compensate you with a couple of free burgers!
