Food Ad Tricks

Cool video to Help Kids Understand Food Ads. Of course, if you think this is some sort of grand scheme by fast food places to make sure the pictures of their burgers look 100x more awesome than in real life, you're right, course, this is no different than pretty much every other industry and every other commercial image or video. If you look at any product of any sort in any sort of ad and think they're not manipulated in some way or other, think again. Every screen image is simulated, lash inserts are added, and every bit of food has some gross and disgusting goop applied to make it look succulent, and I'm pretty sure half the time cars in ads are all computer generated.
