Is it just me or is there something a little weird about how advertisers show their house "sets" for different products?

A prime example is adverts for vacuum cleaners/ carpet cleaners where the sofas are covered in crumbs and pet hairs or there is a big pile of dirt on the carpet.
Obviously the fake family are so messy that they need the product but most real people don't have homes like that (or do they?).

Other examples are massive luxury kitchens in food delivery or food kits adverts or bathrooms bigger than the inside of the Tardis for toilet cleaners

All quite surreal if you ask me.

I think you're well aware of what these evil bsta4s are up to Spartacus. Fancy a trip down semiotics lane?

SpringTime, are you trying to say they are selling me a dream.
Well no thank you very much the one where I go to work naked is bad enough hence why I don't go out much KidKruger or Socalise DR as I don't want that dream expanding into a naked trip to the pub (let's be honest absolutely no one would want to see that)

No thank you indeed, one bad dream at a time is enough for me

Just do the sh*ke and v*c and put the freshness back

(I think that ad might be sexist these days)
