Weird thought obsessing me at the moment

When adverts say something happens "in seconds" (for instance, "moneysupermarket.com searches the market in seconds") is there some sort of regulatory upper limit on how long the process should take before that claim becomes dubious? 'Cos strictly speaking, any time span longer than one second can be said to be "in seconds". The Sun will turn into a red giant "in seconds", just 150 million billion of them.
