According to George Carlin an American stand-up comedian, famous for his black comedy, “Governments don’t want well informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. This is against their interests.” Comedy has the power to convince the majority of message the messenger is trying to give due to which advertisements make use of it to sell their products.
