What’s said in this commercial:
(Cartoon announcer): When your immune system wants support, try Airborne. With 13 vitamins, minerals and herbs, like zinc, Echinacea, ginger and a blast of vitamin C. Airborne. In effervescent, chewables, and now a new formula in gummies.
What some people might think the commercial says or claims:
- When I am sick or starting to get sick, Airborne will boost my immune system so that I don’t get sick, or, get better faster
What this commercial actually says:
- At no point in this ad is any claim made that Airborne can or will make you get better faster, that Airborne will cure you of anything, or that Airborne will help, boost, or in any way improve your immune system.
- The (cartoon) announcer says: When your immune system wants support, try Airborne. The announcer does not suggest that if your immune system needs support you should use Airborne. The announcer also suggests that you “try Airborne”. Because most people have no way to know when their immune system “wants” support, and because the announcer says only to “try Airborne”, some people may consider this statement meaningless or an attempt to fool viewers.
- The cartoon announcer tell us about some of the 13 minerals, vitamins and herbs in Airborne but does not suggest that any of these ingredients can or will do anything to actually cure any sickness or boost your immune system. It is left up to the viewer to assume that these ingredients can improve their immune system or help them get over an illness any faster
- Approximately 7 seconds into this 15 second commercial the following disclaimer is shown in very fine-print, at the bottom of the screen:
These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
This disclaimer, particularly this part: This product is not intended to … prevent any disease very clearly us that taking Airborne will not help prevent any diseases.
This short television advertisement for Airborne does not make any claims that it will boost your immune system, prevent you from getting sick, or make you recover from an illness any faster. Some people may think that some of the wording used in this commercial is intended to make think that using Airborne will boost or improve their immune system.
