What are the most misleading commercials on television now?
I vote for the “collector’s coins” commercials. First, they tell you about a single coin that’s worth $20 million (or whatever). Then they say, “Now the Collector’s Mint [or whoever] is re-ssuing this famous coin!” for an unbelievably low price. They call it a “Genuine 2 mil gold proof!” The gullible will hear “Genuine Gold Proof!”, and miss the “2 mil” part. That is, the implication is that the coin is actually valuable; not that it has only 2/1000 of an inch (5/100 of a millimeter) of actual gold over a base metal “coin”.
