Most of the washing powders use children in their advertisements. We can consider the example of a commercial of Surf Excel , where a kid is trying to please his teacher, who has lost her dog. The kid tries to woo the teacher by making some crazy gestures and doing activities that a dog would do. The kid gets some intense and heavy stains on his clothes, while playing in mud, while he was acting like a dog. The company just wants to show that their detergent powder is capable of removing the worst of the stains. This could have been done, even without using the kid in the advertisement. Using a child and making him do some activities which should not be done by children of his age (5-6 years) is unethical on the part of the company. This has been done by the company to win emotion of the

customers. The company has done this because a lot of children will force their parents to buy the product as they could connect with the advertisement.
The company could have used an adult, as the product they are dealing with is no where related to children. The company just wanted to create an impact on the viewers that their product can remove heavy stains, with great ease. A mechanic could have been shown who comes home after the work with an extremely dirty shirt and his wife could have been shown using Surf Excel to remove the stains.

The stranger thing is that a lot of people actually fall in their trap and get influenced with what they see. You can t reduce your weight and reduce the measurement of your waist. The company can succeed. within few days. if r egular exercise is done on the machine. . the company is deceiving its c ustomers. The company should design its commercial in such a way. A person and some girls are shown in the advertisement. They want the viewers to believe in what they claim.TELE BRANDS: Tele Brands is a shopping network. The person takes measurement of the waist of the girls and then asks the girls to exercise on the machine.

The company uses unethical means of promoting their product. which is portrayed as. like India. which i s known for its culture. A weapon of seduction . which may are not liked by all the households.

if you own a Lava phone. the girl on the cash counter. The company could have used different means to showcase the manly thing.
