Truth in Advertising?

The Banana Boat commercial depicts a yellow umbrella (much like the insurance company, but theirs is red). This umbrella, I presume, is to illustrate how the banana boat line of suncare products protects us from the sun, much like the shade from a big yellow umbrella would if it were constantly floating overhead. Problem: none of the umbrellas pictured actually provided any shade, therefore protection, from the sun. Would this be subliminal or Freudian truth in advertising?

Just a thought, I'm going back to bed now.
Bax out.
