Do you do this with every restaurant that advertises?

If so, you'd be writing a lot of letters. Even Red Lobster juices up the food in their commercials. I've been there before - their shrimp specials they advertise on television look nothing like what actually comes on the plate. Highly disappointing? No, because I know better. Most of the time, the stuff in the commercial is not even real food! *gasp* Props are used and used often. Did you know that most ice cream advertisements use butter in their commercials rather than ice cream because it looks better and holds up longer in shoots. A golden rule of commercial shoots is don't eat the food on set because, again, most of the time - its not real.
So, if you want me to see this complaint as valid - you better start posting more letters to other companies that you patronize who have advertisement of their food items.
