You know how some ads for food look too scrumptious to be true? Well, you probably wouldn’t want to eat the food that “modeled” for the picture. Not only do they do things like slather a hamburger with petroleum jelly to make it shiny, glue extra sesame seeds on the bun, and put cardboard in the sandwich to make it look bigger, but they do even worse things.
Like for instance, they may use white glue instead of milk in cereal commercials so that the cereal doesn’t get soggy during shooting. (yum, yum!) Another trick that sounded pretty nasty is to use liquid dish soap to make hot chocolate so that it looks nice and foamy on top.
Amazing the things that are done to make the product more appealing. It makes you look at ads with a whole new eye, doesn’t it?
