Summary Paragraph #2

As time went by every major company was using advertisements. Some of the biggest companies were cocoa cola and ford motor company. They used a series of various advertisements. People bought cocoa cola because it was one of the best selling carbonated soft drinks. They loved the taste of the drink. People bought ford because they had some o the nicest cars for a low price.

What if you couldn’t pay the money back? Even though it seems good at the moment it would come back to haunt you later.
