    Muscletech's hydroxycut


    Has anyone else noticed this?

    They've been using the same ads for hydroxycut since like 2003. But the formula for hydroxycut has been redone about a dozen times since then (like when they had to drop the ephedra).

    So like half the testimonies on the commercial....aren't for the same product they're even selling, are they?

    That's a good point. But at least when stretching the truth, it's all about the same thing you are selling.

    This is like using the Testimonies from Halodrol-50 to sell Halodrol Liquid Gels. Or Superdrol to sell SDNG.

    Many times, unfortunately, you just have to try it out. Lots of postive testimonies might indicate that it is a good product, but I'd never rely on a testimony to reveal a product's true value.

    I completely agree.

    Did you ever see the episode of Dateline where they made an infomercial? They encapsulated Chocolate Milk mix and started an ad campaign for it as an anti-aging supplement. Testimonies, graphs, even had doctors endorsing it

    That was probably Pat Robertson's products. Kinda like how he did a 2,000lb leg press or something like that.

    To move 2000lbs on a 45 degree leg press a total of 6 inches, he is expending a whopping 0.9 kcal of work. It's a good thing he drinks his special protein.

    I think in the video he is actually pushing his knees with both of his hands. He probably should have used knees wraps instead because he was being so hardcore.

    exactly, they take a main active ingredient out and replace it by another saying its better than before when in fact it isn't, it may be worst or just not as affective. Just like this new Hydroxycut

    Ya I don't see how it is any different from capitalizing off past products, such as the 2 you mentioned. Putting "#1 Selling PH" in huge letters in the ads for SDNG is the same thing IMO. I haven't seen exactly how HLG is advertised in that regard, I'm distracted by Marzia

    But again, I see no difference really.

    I'm not arguing about rereleasing the product under a new formula. It happens all the time.

    I'm arguing about advertising using data which is no longer valid. If someone lost 10lbs using hydroxycut, that's no longer valid information to be advertised since that version no longer exists and there is no mention of the fact that it was a different version.

    One time IN THE SAME MAGAZINE they had the same guy in both of these ads:

    -One with hydroxycut the guy losing like 30lbs in 8 weeks or whatever

    -The next ad he GAINED 30lbs in 8 weeks using mesotech. It was the most hilarious thing ive read. And im being completely serious, same magazine, same guy.
