If you watch television enough, then there is no way you can avoid the advertisements. Playing between films and serials they have their own stories to tell, and not very realistic at that. Most ads, in their bid to promote the sale of the products, tend to go overboard with their claims. While soft drinks brands tell you the only way to enjoy a drink is to undertake unimaginable, and if one might add, unnecessary risks while procuring it, several beauty brands maintain having a fairer complexion will ensure all doors will open for you in life.

It goes without saying that this is all hyperbole and a video, uploaded online, does a great job in showing what these OTT advertisements would be if they were realistic. And in case you are have doubts, you can eat a potato chip and not have another, irrespective of what advertisements might claim. The video was uploaded by Schitzengiggles Comedy, also known as SNG Comedy, a popular comic group in 2015 and as we would all agree, nothing much has changed since then.
