This bond that is created between the viewer and a celebrity helps understand the effectiveness that endorsements have where marketers have failed. The celebrity builds character in the eyes of the public and that character carries on into the product he is endorsing, and even though a part of the persuasion has to exist in the product itself, but a celebrity uses his status and the character he has built to gain credibility and likeability among the target audience. This character the celebrity transfers to the product is known as the “meaning “(2). The transfer of the meaning to the product goes through three stages. The first stage is in finding the celebrity with the desired meaning that they want to carry to the product this requires casting from the wide world of celebrity endorsers. The second stage is choosing which celebrity embodies the meaning the marketing campaign requires for the product, this stage is subject to expense restraints and availability. After deciding on an endorser stage three is the most complicated stage as in this step the endorser has to be able to transfer that meaning into the product, they have to make this meaning “available to the consumer in a material form”(2), this stage allows the consumer to accept the meaning they are given and accept the product and you use is a tool to build their own character.

A single photograph - how it is captured, the angle in which it was shot, the context behind it - can alter the perception of reality. One image, if executed maliciously, can create such an intense pernicious effect on the individual photographed, that it can cause undue effects on their reputation, or even psychological state. Celebrities often find themselves victimized by the paparazzi in this way, and breakdowns due to a negative appearance in the spotlight have become prevalent in modern day socialite culture. Today, with everything just a click away, it is surprisingly easy to find intimate details of a celebrity’s life, and even easier to find incriminating photos with falsified headlines. The paparazzi has a negative connotation in society, and has generated an aversive effect on celebrities, because they have fabricated images with negative portrayals of celebrities, impeded on a celebrity’s right to privacy, and appropriated a celebrity’s fame in order achieve material that is deemed as newsworthy.
It is known to be true that the best endorsements achieve a deriving ideas, style and taste between the product and the celebrity. Giving a brand an appearance is more than just a marketing strategy to increase sales; it is a decision that can change the outcome of the brand for the

Young and Pinsky (2006) make a claim that celebrity culture has generated a curiosity about celebrities’ personal lives. Adding on to this research, Marshall (2010) states that celebrities are willing to reveal their personal lives so that they can gain more followers. He also shows that celebrities reconstruct their profile for online personal branding by uploading personal posts related to their everyday lives. He demonstrates this through observing the actor Vin Diesel on social media. Marshall call this as “the presentation of self”, that celebrities expose their information in three different levels: “public self”, “public private self”, and “transgressive intimate self” (p.44).
The moderate growth rate of the restaurant industry results in many competitive rivalries and the nature of business allows customers to switch freely. Therefore, among porter’s five forces, the pressures from substitute products tend to drive the most competition in the restaurant industry today (Restaurant 2015).

In the modern America, there are many celebrities who are very popular of their own fame, but not famous for their skills on their industries. To list the famous celebrities: Paris Hilton, Justin Bieber, and Kim Kardashian. These three celebrities are very popular for being famous on TVs that fame could come from bad or good images. They are well known for their lack of personalities than their achievements in the celebrity lives. For an example, Justin Bieber has many male anti-fans who hates him for his personalities or lack of musical skills, and maybe some are just jealous of Justin's fame because he got popular so quickly on the internet. These ideas go same as the other two celebrities that I mentioned, yet, Kim and Paris are also well known for the leaked sex tapes that issued the whole world because they have the attractive physical bodies that everyone looks for when looking at a female celebrity.

I am tired of people making it seem like being different is a bad thing when actually normality is.

Laura and her boss Isabel have the garden variety marketing problem in the age of ubiquitous media advertising; how to reach the customer and sell your product amidst "ad-zapping devices and a decrease in consumer attention spans" (USAToday.com.
