Food advertisements are being very creative with their commercials on television and billboards all around the US. With no doubt they are catching people’s attention, mainly children and adolescents. All the beautiful bright colors a commercial has and the price they are offering makes a good deal to a family. Once they see that they automatically have to get it, because of course it is way cheaper than a salad and other healthier foods. Marketers do this, with the intention of getting consumers hands on their product. Although they spend tons of dollars for a commercial, they will still do it because one way or another they are getting profit from it. All those commercials that have been in trend and that will be in trend, are affecting children
The Diet Pepsi print advertisement “Forever Young” is quite creative and thought provoking. The print advertisement shows the front of a businessman’s body, from his nose down to his midsection. This most likely belongs in a magazine, in a place such as a doctor’s office or barbershop, or whatever any day place that the average person would visit. He holds a “Diet Pepsi” cup in the center of the advertisement, with the intention of immediately bringing the cup attention to the reader. He blows bubbles through a straw into the beverage, overflowing the cup and making quite a mess. It is a serious, black and gray formal background. This is meant to be ironic, because a businessman does not typically partake in childish behaviors like in the picture, in such a serious, adult-like atmosphere. The main message this is trying to convey is non-conformity, through its ironic picture of a relatable businessman, and its “Forever Young” caption on the bottom right. “Forever Young” could also suggest that drinking Diet Pepsi can make one feel young and like a kid again and how humans have a basic necessity for having fun, which can be explained by blowing the bubbles in the drink.
Six seconds. That is the length in time someone will read a billboard. An advertising medium that does not carry the same weight that it us to. Especially when a boring billboard will just be ignored. A billboard needs to be smart enough to grab someones attention, as well as leave a lasting impression. Driving eastbound on Interstate 8 in Southern California, one billboard is trying to accomplish just that. A chicken billboard. The chicken in question, belonging to the company behind Chick-fil-A. On its most basic level, this ad is a simple one. It is predominantly a white background with black text and a red Chick-fil-A logo. Which at first glance does not seem all that appealing or interesting. But on a second glance, the viewer can notice
Going back centuries, producers have been advertising to make a profit from their product. More recently, billboards have been one of the key forms of advertisement and can be spotted all alongside the major roadways. They can reach a large amount of people, and they are intended to do so in a quick manner. Buc-ee’s, Geico, and Chick-Fil-A, three very unique companies, make for the perfect billboards to analyze; when observing, how they grab the viewer’s attention, who the billboards are intending to reach, and the information that each provides, one can reach a conclusion upon the efficiency of billboards.
America is known for being one of the unhealthiest nations in the world. This true statement is able to be traced all the way back to what is in our foods: corn, sugar, salt, and fat. Each of these ingredients are generally okay to consume small amounts. Unfortunetly, many Americans are consuming extremely high amounts of these products, simply because the ingredients are in nearly every meal you can think of. In order to fix this dilemma, the government must take action for their responsibility by requiring food labels to be clear and accurate, boost incentives for marketing healthier foods, and end subsidies for corn and soy, all while encouraging the population to consume healthier foods.

The 1947 Campbell soup ad was able to relate to its viewers by depicting a young married couple. In the late 1940's and 1950's it was important to marry young. Women were pressured to marry at a young age and become a homemaker; taking care of their husband, house and children were their top priority. The husband is coming home from work, presumably an office based on his suit. His wife is able to anticipate his needs and have dinner started before he gets home.
I will begin with the commentary “Advertisements R Us”, by Melissa Rubin. I agree, somewhat, that advertising is a way to hook the consumers. Of course, that is how they expect to sell their product. When a company wants to market their product, they will advertise it to appeal to a variety of consumers. They will try to convince the consumers that they must have the product they are marketing.
In the Hunter/Gatherer section of Omnivore’s Dilemma, Pollan talks about what it takes to accomplish the task of developing a meal on his own; consequently, the people of today’s society are so used to the abundance of food that they have no idea what all is involved in establishing a full meal. Americans take this great abundance of food for granted, which causes an increased craving for more. This is where the world of advertisement has been the strongest. One of the easiest ways to reach people is through their food; therefore, major food industries try to lure people in at all costs just to buy their products. The Fast food industry is the
When my family moved away from the place I grew up I began to have a major problem with my weight; I turned to food to comfort me. I somehow felt secure while eating and because of that psychological reassurance I got from the food, I was soon over weight. I knew I had to do something but that urgency would die when I would be introduced to a new flavor of Brewster’s ice cream or a limited time only supreme large fries that I saw advertised on the television or in a magazine. My self esteem and body-image suffered a great amount during those years of constant struggle. As I looked at pictures of celebrities, athletes, average people, friends, my sister and then myself, I noticed something, all of them were thin except me. After this and
Smoking tobacco has been a part of American culture since its very conception. Throughout our history, tobacco has been advertised as a simple pleasure for those who seek it out. Whether you are sitting on the porch with a couple of friends or in a dimly lit jazz club, tobacco ads give off a false sense of comfort, power, and success. Until around the mid-1900’s, smoking cigarettes was not considered unhealthy. It was only later that the public realize the detrimental health consequences that came with smoking tobacco. To spread this information, specific advertisements were aired to help inform the public of the dangers of smoking. While these ads have changed over time, the same message and warning still remains evident.
