Now I'm sure a lot of people have seen this legendary commercial with the epic old spice man, but never really gave it any thought, like me. I went out and bought old spice because after using this fine-smelling product, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. This man didn't take advantage of his abilities. I would go above and beyond and ride on top of a jet while feeding a monkey. I would steal his idea by having diamonds flow out of my hands and make millions of dollars as my form of income. Its incredibly convincing, is it not? Unfortunately, this commercial made extraordinary claims with no evidence to support it. According to the book, this principle states "the more a claim contradicts what we already know, the more persuasive the evidence must be before we accept it." This commercial would need an incredible amount of evidence in order to be logically accepted. Will this happen to anyone? This can't be tested and is scientifically impossible. I wish I had taken this class before the purchase, its all lies! I wasn't able to make diamonds flow out of my hands, I remain heavily disappointed.
I will become this man
