British Reflections on American Advertising
I happened to be perusing news stories on BBC, and ran across this very funny commentary on American Advertising:
Take the following example, where he's talking about the little disclaimer at the end of pharmaceutical advertisements:
Sometimes these are spelled out in a warm tone implying this is all a bit of a formality imposed by our fuss-budget of a government.
