There’s something strikingly eerie about a person’s words, body language and tone not all matching when they speak. Your brain has a hard time comprehending what’s going on, and you almost hear what you want to hear and see what you want to see despite what’s actually occurring. The effect can be pretty entertaining as well, as seen in the rise of its use in advertising. This first video, called Truth In Advertising, shows what would happen if everyone spoke with the same body language and tone they would normally use, but actually spoke what was on their minds.This Cingular commercial shows a mother and daughter with words that don’t match their body language so that they are agreeing with each other in a very argumentative tone.
This Citibank commercial shows two ladies talking with each other but with entirely different voices and subject matter dubbed over.
Each video manipulates the way we speak in a different manner, and each seems to confuse us in a different way, though each still manages to entertain. Sound good ‘cause they free. Shoot.
