“Commercials for prescription drugs would be better if the actors had to act out the side effects”

Commercials for prescription drugs almost always show a person happy and healthy after taking the drug. Some people have suggested that the commercials should act out the side effects.

“TV would be so much more fun if they acted out the side effects in medicine ads” was posted on Twitter by Nicole Frölich on August 1, 2009. “I still think they should have to act out the side effects in drug commercials” was posted on Twitter by James on February 2, 2010. “I wish these prescription commercials would act out the side effects instead of just reading them off” was posted on Twitter by Lance Curran on August 15, 2015.

@AlexThePhotog I still think they should have to act out the side effects in drug commercials.

I want to take a moment to express that drug commercials would be better if the actors acted out the side-effects litany.

You know what would be fun is if they actually acted out the side-effects listed in those drug commercials on TV.

The commercials for cigarettes would be better if the actors had to act out the side effects too.
