To apply the sleeper effect to this ad, let’s imagine Ted, an undecided voted, sees this advertisement…

Surprisingly, my whole outlook on giving birth and its emotional impact changed when I gave birth to my first child, Joy. I remember the day as if it was yesterday, despite the fact that it took place almost nine years ago. It was a rainy Sunday in February when I invited my best…
