"My mom always told me"

There is this one commercial that is currently running hot in the circulations of mainstream Pinoy TV. People can't help but notice the line "My mom always told me..." from a shampoo commercial. I am not saying that there is something wrong in this line but I have to admit that it sounds strange for me. Many people has been talking about it too, pertaining to its so-called 'grammatical errors'. Now, I dont mean to cause any offense to the people behind this TVC. I am also a copywriter but I must admit that Im no grammar master.

Now, I will leave it to my raiders to decide whether there is a sting of error in this line below-

"You know what my mom always told me... look your best always, you'll never know who you'll run into...."

or whether it is correct.
