For or against?

I was just reading some quotes about advertisement and I wonder if you think the same as described here:

Never write an advertisement which you wouldn’t want your family to read. You wouldn’t tell lies to your own wife. Don’t tell them to mine. ~David Ogilvy

You can tell the ideals of a nation by its advertisements. ~Norman Douglas, South Wind

Advertising is the art of making whole lies out of half truths. ~Edgar A. Shoaff

Promise, large promise, is the soul of an advertisement. ~Samuel Johnson

I agree with what this says. Of course, I also have to add that in order for an Ad to be effective you have to be convincing, compelling, and creative.

Advertisements should only be made to show the advantages of a Product or Services to its customers! Make them feel the need of it without giving false promises or telling lies about the product.
