Advertising has been around for a long time and people that create commercials know a lot about those fears and weaknesses and even desire and dreams that the regular people have. So they use them in order to be profitable and in order to sell their products. Every business is really competitive in current times so the company that manages to attract more customers will be the most profitable and most successful. That is why these companies have to use all the possible methods and all the techniques that they can think of. The more creative and unique they are the better.
