“It’s tempting to believe that wearing certain clothing will eliminate severe pain, but Tommie Copper didn’t have science to back its claims,” said Jessica Rich, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. “If you see an ad for a product that promises to replace the need for drugs or surgery, talk to a healthcare professional before you spend your money.”
Boomer Esiason's Tommie Copper Commercial ...
Thank god Tommie Copper, after it paid the FTC $135,000,000 to settle deceptive advertising charges (that it made claims its copper 'infused' stuff would relive pain), was able to find enough cash to pay Boomer Esiason, Montel William's (recall his “Tommie Copper truly is pain relief without a pill" tagline?) replacement. (Because who doesn't want to follow Montel as a paid spokesman?)
If an ad runs on WFAN...
Think of this every time Boomer Esiason promotes Tommie Copper.
