Andromass... Advert a TAD miss leading?

  1. Thumbs down Andromass... Advert a TAD miss leading?


    Okay i may be just being a complete d**k here, but i just saw an advert for andro-mass... now on the image it has the back of Ronnie Coleman... (I am 99.9% sure it is, anyone would know that back if they are into bodybuilding...have a look for yourself and decide, image/advert below)

    Im sure andromass works well and is 'reasonably' priced in comparison to some products, but using a picture that is in no way related to the company (IF Ronnie Coleman is related to Primordial Performance then i HUGELY apologize) would put many people off, and also surely provide a false image of what the product can do... Me personally wouldnt buy that product because its being falsely advertised... showing a back of this size says to me, you are saying your product will get you that big....

    Now i know there will be many people that just tell me to shut up... but IMO its wrong to use an image like that because you wouldn't get that big on it, and its non related...

    Am i being a panicky twat? Or is there a point?

  2. It's days gain 8-12lbs not that you're going to be that big. Every company uses guys that are built like that. U want them to show a skinny shrimp guy then would u be more likely to buy there product?

  3. TBH I don't see a problem as there is no mention that you would get a back like that when using the product. I have more of a problem with the claims that people can gain 8-12 lbs of solid mass as this is only going to be the case with a good diet/training programme. Maybe it is just something that has gone on for so long with all adverts (not just for supps) that I am now immune to it.

    I suppose it's similar to the air brushing debate that is going on in the UK at the moment with a Julia Roberts advert - http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandsty...rts-jo-swinson. 99% of people know that all adverts are photoshopped and generally unrealistic but people still think that some adverts step over the mark.

    With all supp adverts promising that their product can increase muscle/reduce bodyfat, etc. I have just become so tainted that I ignore them and rely on lots of non-sponsored logs before I'll even consider buying the product.

    ^^^
    Agreed. when it comes down to it tho, its money and business in my opinion.

  5. @Warsteiner

    You're right, everything nower days is completely miss leading, and a vast amount of supplements do the same thing, i think IMO it puts people off making claims like that.




    If it were me, i would send the product out into the market as a 'trail' a little cheaper than normal price, as most companies do, and then get people who buy them to log their progress (Like on AM) and provide photos of before and after to be used as advertising. No false crap, or random photos, send the user to this forum and get them to read the FACTS about how good a product is. Surely the most obvious way?

    Anyway i know regardless of 'all the hype' and photos, all bodybuilders and trainers alike are just going to stick to what they know works, despite a picture of a skinny guy or a massive guy.

    If it aint broke why fix it?

  6. Welcome to the world of marketing and advertising, it's done by everybody. Take a look at the banner ads here at AM and you'll find at least three or four that advertise in the same way. It's just good business to associate your company with a bodybuilders body, seeing as how that's what your target audience wants. Heck, if beer commercials can advertise with bikini clad women or hair gel commercials can throw in an orgasm inducing aspect, why can't a supp company do the same.

  7. if you are mad at pp, you should hate muscletech for there ads lol....probaly one of the worst.

  8. ^^Lol! I wondered when they would enter this discussion!
    "Aren't two sparrows sold for a small coin? But not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father knowing about it already. Even the hairs of your head are all counted. Don't be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows."

  9. there anabolic vitakic or whatever this call it. lol................muscletech trying to make it sound like there multi vitamin is a steriod or something lol

  10. dont be mad cause you aint swole bro. the add says what you can gain. it doesnt say "look at this mans back. it could be yours". this is PP, not muscletech. get real man

  11. No one is comparing muscletech and pp! I said if you dont like pp ad, then look at muscletech.

  12. This whole thread is rhetorical.

  13. Muscletech definitely set the bar high, like Jerry Springer high.

  14. I agree with the OP... The flashy advertisement isn't needed. If the product works, Then it works. Showing pictures of Ronnie Colemans back or Matt Porter isn't going to make me want to try your product... If anything it pushes me away because it looks like you're trying WAY too hard. Keep it simple PP... We don't need you to tell us how much money/hours you put into androseries, or show pictures of gigantic bodybuilders... Just keep the advertising simple. Honestly I think it's worse than those commercials "Lose 30lbs in 30 days".

    The OP gives his opinion and you come in here in insult him? You get real, Man. Just because you disagree with his opinion, And that's what it really is, An opinion, Doesn't mean you have to be a dick and say "Don't be mad cause you aint swole bro"... Really? Being a rep on here I would expect you to have a little bit more class. But then again PP reps are the only reps I know that have class and can take a bashing but yet still be respective even when someone is being a complete d*ckh*ad. I give BigBlackGuy, HTS and Rodja sh*t all the time but they never insult me when I bust their balls on their product.

  16. New advertisement, not sure if Eric will approve:

    Just inject.

    OP you are one cheeky **** mate, i swear

  21. I have to say that the ad is pretty low rent. The only misleading part is that it misleads me into thinking that PP is full of **** and just like all of the other companies that make outrageous claims. The fact is however, that PP is an outstanding company and everything I've gotten from them has worked well*. They are a progressive company; the way they innovate sets them apart from the crowd. So when they have ads like this I really think it sets them back alot in my opinion. The other ads I've seen for the Andro series aren't quite as bad, but I don't know that seeing Eric wearing a fleece jacket with a pen behind his ear does a whole lot for me.

    *Including AndroMass! I did gain that much weight, I don't look bloated, and I blew past all of my personal records.

    Hahahaha! So true! I find it funny when girls look at the magazines and say, "eww!", yet girls will always ask to feel your arms. Ever see a girl walk up to a fat dude and say, "hi, can I squeeze your gut?" Lol

    Is it because you're so massive already that your girlfriend thinks you shouldn't try and put anymore mass on that macho frame? lol
