Do commercials really convince you to buy the product there selling?

I can honestly say, I don't think I have ever bought a food or grocery product as a result of an advert or commercial. Most of the stuff and brands I buy and use are either one my family have used for years, and I have followed in their footsteps, or they are ones that have been recommended by friends. When it comes to non grocery shopping I think the only time I was influenced by an advert was for an ideal present for someone for christmas on a Boots advert.

I started a discussion very much like yours about tv adverts making you buy the product but thats fine as yours is worded very differently to mine. I think depending on hte commericals yes... I brought oreao biscuits cos the commercial was cute, but the biscuits are really awful
