Ladies and Gentleman, I have clear evidence that our education system is failing us.

As exhibit A, I present to you the caption on the current Clean & Clear TV ad.

It’s about the ‘inprovement’ the product allegedly makes to your skin. What’s more, the voiceover pronounces the word as it’s spelled.

It’s no surprise that teenagers get spots. And not much of a surprise that they can’t spell, especially when advertisers and clients can’t even get it right.

I wonder how many people approved the ad before it went live?

Next time it’s on, see if you can spot the typo.
