I tell the story of how when I was little there was this commercial with Michael Jordan eating Wheaties. So I went grocery shopping with my mom and begged for her to buy me Wheaties, which she gladly did. The cereal was disgusting, but I ate it because I thought I could be like Mike. Instead of using the conditional statement: If you are Michael Jordan, then you eat Wheaties, I was duped into believing the converse: “If you eat Wheaties, then you will be Michael Jordan.” This is how commercials fool little kids, by advertising the converse statement.
-If you drink Pepsi, then you will be Britney Spears.
-If you buy Kobe Bryant’s shoes, then you will play like Kobe.
-If you buy Justin Bieber’s hair product, then girls will go bonkers.
