Because Garnier means 'fooled you'

I'm sure we all understand that what is said in commercials should be taken with a grain of salt, but now a commercial aimed at women has crossed the line. I'm talking about Garnier Nutrisse. You know - where Sarah Jessica Parker goes on about this hair product's wonderful qualities and then feeds us this line, "that's because Nutrisse means nourish." Oh, that's supposed to validate everything you've said about the product?

Only one small problem. Nutrisse doesn't mean nourish. In fact, it doesn't mean anything, because it's not a word. It's not a French word either - which is what I'm sure they would have you believe. It's a frickin scam.
