Does the web site reflect the mission statement? If yes, state content from the web site that reflects the mission statement. If the company’s web site does not reflect its mission statement, state why. American Standard Company’s mission is to “"Be the best in the eyes of our customers, employees and shareholders," (Fortune 500 Mission Statements: American Standard Company, 2015).
Commercials are intended to sell a product or to educate people. In the Commercial “First Date” advertising the 2016 Hyundai Genesis luxury sedan and staring Kevin Hart, the car company aims to reach a broader audience. This was aired during Super Bowl 50th. While some aspects of American culture have changed, there are some fundamental beliefs that have stayed consistent for years. What has remained consistent is; that Fathers will always be protective of their daughters, and that people will spend money on technology if it makes their lives easier. These two points are emphasized in this advertisement. I believe that this commercial is very persuasive in getting its target audience to consider purchasing this vehicle or at the least investigate
What is it that drives commercials towards their target audience? Commercials can be aimed toward certain age, race, along with certain gender groups. Pop culture has influenced minority groups and shed light on women 's rights or so it may seem. Lisa Shaffer a fellow student feels otherwise and believes that Pop culture has only defended traditional values and does little to challenge those who already have power . Commercials bring in gender norms and in Steve Craig’s article, “Men’s Men and Women’s Women” he speaks on four particular TV ads directed towards male and female audiences. Interestingly enough these tv ads deliver a false image of the opposite sex to the audience catering to their preferences. It is the image of what the audience wants to see that appeals to them. This is all in an attempt to sell products and take advantage of our desires and anxieties. Craig shows how commercials bring gender norms that produce the stigmas of a man’s man and a woman’s woman, which makes it apparent that he would agree with Shaffer because it promotes an old way of thinking.
Steve Craig, in his article Men’s Men and Women’s Women especially define how different sexes in advertisement can influence a particular audience towards a product; one stereotypical method he describes is “Men’s Women” (Craig).One such ad using sex appeal, and a basic structure of “Men’s Women” to bring in customer was made by BMW in 2008 to sell their used cars. BMW, which is a world-renowned company known for its performance heavy automobiles, targets a male audience by comparing a gorgeous woman to their cars.This ad by BMW, who no doubt make amazing cars, degrade women through its message, and it enforces Steve Craig’s “Men’s women” tactic, but this ad also goes a step further and displays the ever-present patriarchy in advertisement overtly.
Audi came out with a commercial called 'Daughter', It first caught my attention because of interest to win the race. That isn't the only race she is trying to win though, Audi is trying to show women that they are capable to be as strong as men. They should be treated equal and they can be if they are employed by Audi in the work force. They will receive the same pay and benefits as men.
Women are suppressed and degraded in society. They are merely seen as pets for males or care-takers of the house and children. The advertisement on women’s equality is rhetorically effective due to its connection to the audience, emotional appeal, and how things are positioned in the ad, as well as the misogynistic comments and how society depicts women.
She seems happy to be driving, yet she is not even looking at the road. The woman is also driving alone, which was not common for a woman to be driving, let alone by themselves. It is also pointed out that the two boys are whistling at something, but she is not sure what they are whistling towards. The lady seems vibrate and ecstatic that she is able to drive this luxurious, red car. The lady, even in a cartoon, is seem to be beautiful, and that draws the attention of men wanting to buy the car; however, this could also draw the attention of a woman, because now that a woman is driving in the ad, maybe their husbands would let them drive more. Also, in the wide variety of cars it shows women driving those as well, no men are ever shown driving the cars. This ad would not have been persuasive in today’s times because it is sexualizing the woman driving, and not focusing more on the car; however, back then this ad would have made people’s heads turn whenever they saw the ad, and they would immediately look into the
The image of the family in the ad is something that men’s can relate to. The projection of the picture makes it look like the family is tries to convince the husband to buy this new car. The image implies that this new car is what every man is dreaming of having. Furthermore, this advertisement is aimed at the middle-class, ad insinuates that is affordable, and gives more miles for gas than any other car. Behind this image of the Father and the important man the car is also presenting as a family carrier, as the vehicle for everyone, driving by the father. It is a tool for the family, a tool that all the men know how to use it, according to the meaning that are presenting through the
The role and function of advertising is a debatable one. Most would argue that since it is not intended to be a governmental aid in ensuring and creating opportunities for equality, we are unable to expect such efforts to be made within this industry. Advertisers have the job of selling, to persuade and increase consumption as to satisfy the capitalist’s pockets. The play on social injustice often associated with this particular industry makes it relevant to question it though. Male dominance in this area is evident, but are we not even to view men and women as equal in terms of being potential consumers?
The Company in new terrain is bound to have close netted connections with local communities either for CSR activities or to hire the appropriate employees. Many a processes in the organizations are outsourced. Audi also plays a vital role in providing the education, employment for the community.

In gender advertisement, images are used to portray stereotypical gender roles. In this advert I would briefly describe its and then I would do the analysis. The advertisement is for Huggies diapers a company that sell baby supplies. The purpose of the advert is to establish the role of a particular gender against the other. The advert shows a father and his child. The attention of the advert is to challenge the gender stereotypes because it shows a man who is taking care of the child. The context of the advert is to show that the father is responsible for taking care of the child which is strange because mother is usually take care of children. Most of the ads associated with childcare prefers women so it is not common to see a man taking care of a child. The whole point of the is that the company us trying to say that father is also responsible for taking care for the child not only mother.
