Not False Advertising Per Se
Driving back home from getting my monthly manga fix, I saw some rather cute girls holding up signs for their school's dance team's car wash fundraiser. Hey, works for me; the car needed a bath. And high-school girls in their dance team uniforms (which look a lot like cheerleader uniforms) would let me get in touch with my Inner Dirty Old Man.
Except the girls were only there as bait -- the parents were the ones actually washing cars. Now, that's probably for the best: I'm sure the moms and dads know more about getting a car cleaned and dried than a bunch of 17-year-old girls. But on the other hand I felt just a little bit let down.
