IELTS Cue Card- Describe an Advertisement You Saw 
Describe a Recent Advertisement You Saw
  • What type of advertisement it is/was?
  • What does/did it advertise?
  • Where did you see?
I come across various advertisements everyday. I see flyers, billboards, newspapers and internet flooded with advertisements. These are a great marketing tactic to lure customers. Sometimes I find advertisements very amusing and entertaining. The advertisement I clearly remember right now is of a beauty cream. Today, I was watching a video on Youtube and an advertisment of "Fair and Lovely" beauty cream popped up. It features actress Yami Gautam holding a tube of the cream. She is surrounded by girls who are asking her about the secret of her glowing skin and she smilingly hands them over the cream. All the girls apply the cream and their skin tone brightens up and it is compared to the moonlit glow. All of those girls start getting boys' attention and have got jobs because of their flawless skin. I found this advertisement hilarious because just by applying a cream, one cannot get perfect skin and also skin colour has no direct connection  to one's successful career and love life. I think the advertisers should make realistic and sensible advertisements as these kind of ads mislead the youth.
