Reasons I suspect I may be an alien. Part 3.
I was in a shopping mall the other day and saw a big sign outside a shop advertising something with a big “As seen on TV!” logo. Now I’m guessing that advertisers do this because most people will see this as a positive attribute, and that increased sales will result. For me (possibly being an alien) the words “as seen on TV” is a big red flag that here is a crap product made by a crap company who spends all their money on crap TV advertising.
And what was the product? I have no idea – my attention is lost as soon as I spot “as seen on TV”.
