to fall short of what was advertised

Can I use this expression not only about some business points like speaking about products, brands or labels?

For example:

That guy definitely fell short of what was advertised.

    Yes, I suppose you could talk about an electrician or a plumber by saying "That guy definitely fell short of what was advertised."
