Colgate has created an ingenious
advertising campaign to promote their
dental floss.

Now that you have had a chance to look tinier the photos...
In the first one you might not have noticed that the lady
has an extra finger on her hand.
In the second one we have an extra arm resting on the guys
shoulder.
And in the last one the guy is missing an ear.
The campaign attained its purpose: It proved
that food remaining on your teeth draws more
attention than any physical defect.
How well did you do? I failed the whole thing?
What was I thinking?

No no this is ******** . Of course you only focus on the teeth; as soon as you read Colgate that's what you know the post is about

Actually, it doesn't prove much of anything.
First off, chances are, even if you didn't know the ad was a Colgate ad and therefore wouldn't think to look at the teeth, you'd still probably be looking at the person(s)' faces first before you look at something like their hands - which are hidden away and off center, contrast to the actor's faces which are looking right at you and therefore draw your attention immediately.
Because your attention is drawn to their face, you're going to look at two things; their eyes, and their smile.
The ad would probably be more effective in proving its point if the defect was associated with their face - maybe the actors have a missing eye, or a messed up nose, or a unibrow.
Sorry to be the commander of the buzzkill brigade, but this is far from ingenious.

The image basicly tells me to focus on the teeth, I'm not that interested and just barely look at them while I scroll down. Of course I'm not going to notice anything else. I've scrolled so I can't see the image, and the only thing I can remember is that there was a man and a woman. I can't even remeber their haircolors. In real life I'd never even have looked at someones teeth.

I think it's only a problem in 'Murica, where people are forced to show their teeth while smiling, whether it's natural for them or not.

What?
You people will literally make up anything to hate on America, no matter how petty or nonsensical it is.

Well, I saw it was a Colgate ad and so I looked straight away at their teeth. If they were regular pictures with no floss, Colgate, or anything like that in the picture, then it'd be noticed a lot quicker.

I was actually more distracted by how godd ugly that dude is.

The title was Colgate and they had a giant red arrow on the picture. I am going to be looking for teeth and whatever the arrow is pointing at...

I think it's the fact that you titled this "good guy colgate" and the first word on the post is "colgate" so people automatically assume it has to do with their teeth.

Unless you're a spanish speaker, then go hang yourself...
...is probably what you read

Protip: If you are physically deformed, get **** in your teeth! No-one will notice your horrid injuries.

I didn't notice the food on the teeth, or the "defects" just the 						*******					 dental floss on the top right corner. SO THE JOKES ON YOU!

In psychology, we once were given the task to look at a picture and count how many footballs were shown in this picture.
Because we were ordered to concentrate on the balls, we all didn't recognize the fact, that the guy in the picture had 6 fingers on each hand.
It's the same with this ad campaign. As soon as you read 'Colgate' you will concentrate on the teeth, because you know what Colgate is.
Nice try, but it has nothing to do with the usual human perception.
