 We talk about a condition in the past that did not happen. That is why there is no possibility for this condition. The third conditional expresses regret and sorrow about a past action.

e.g. If I had studied harder, I wouldn't have failed the exam.  ( I didn't study hard)

The message behind commercials

      We may not be aware, but advertising has a powerful impact on us. Everywhere we go or whatever we do, we can't escape its influence.

     They try to create a series of associations in our minds; consequently when we look at or watch an ad/ commercial, we need to discover the message behind it.
     Be aware and don't let yourself be fooled.

Now look at the "Emmy 2011 best commercials nominnes" and  identify:
  • the name of the advertisement
