Prescription Drug Commercials

There are many laws in the US I'm sure regarding commercials for prescription drugs. Maybe one of the most obvious of these is the inclusion and listing of risks and side effects.

Sometimes drug companies try and spice things up by having "doctors" or friends who turn out to be doctors list these things off as if this type of language were commonplace in everyday conversation. These attempts come off as fake and useless to me.

I'm sure I could find a lot of other stuff that I don't like about these commercials but this is a good place to start.
