Top Eight Love Slogans That Lie

By

Are love and romance invented by advertisers?

Slogan 5: "Nothin' says lovin' like somethin' from the oven."
Advertiser: Pillsbury
Love Expectation: Feeding your SO is the best way to show him or her that you care.
Tango's Take: Love (noun): Feeling manufactured by an animated man of dough. Er, we hope not. And what era are we in, again? We'll bet that baking isn't the only way to say "lovin'."

Slogan 6: "The one and only."
Advertiser: Cheerios
Love Expectation: You should commit yourself to one person. And only one.
Tango's Take: Honey Nut? Yogurt Burst? Multigrain? Frosted? You've got a lot of explaining to do. As for love, monogamy may appear as the norm, but it is certainly not without exception. Check out Marriage Without Monogamy and Portrait of an Open Marriage.

Slogan 7: "What happens here stays here."
Advertiser: Las Vegas
Love Expectation: If you are away from your partner, it's okay to be unfaithful.
Tango's Take: Betray your partner's trust in one city and you'll lose it in every other.

Slogan 8: "A diamond is forever."
Advertiser: DeBeers
Love Expectation: The commitment that comes with the rock is forever.
Tango's Take: Divorcees? Speak now, or forever hold your peace. While a diamond may indeed last forever (or at least over four billion years), commitments may not always last as long.
