These commercials featuring flavorsome char-broiled burgers with a delectable hand crafted bun sold at a local fast food joint appeal to me, they make me crave the product. This being said they achieve their goal to convince me I need the product they are promoting. Soon I find myself in line ready to purchase one of these fine burgers, I order a meal and anxiously hand the cashier money. I sit down ready to calm this beast in my stomach. I open the packaging to find a burger sloped together, it looks like a 2nd graders arts and crafts project. Soon I begin chowing down on the burger attempting to satisfy the craving. Halfway through my endeavor of the not so flavorsome burger I begin to feel disgusted. This isn’t the first time and it will probably not be the last. But why? Why do I fall for this multiple times? Maybe megaphone guy has drowned me with his brain deadness. Then I realized I’m getting dumber.
The All-Natural Burger The Carl’s Jr’s ad campaigns are often highly sexual and to some people highly comical. The kind of advertising I find these ads’ to be as discussed by Sturken and Cartwright fall into the category of the gaze, specifically when dealing with gender. Commercials have a large impact on our society they are used to sell items, but what do ad’s like the All-Natural say about our culture or what effects does it leave on society?
In the ad we see the use of one of the three rhetorical appeals. Ethos or credibility is seen through the black colored words “OUR”, “INGREDIENTS”, “ARE”, and

Final Draft: Volkswagen vs. Lexus Over the last few decades, American culture has been forever changed by the huge amount of advertisement the people are subjected to. Advertising has become such an integral part of society, many people will choose whether or not they want to buy a product based only on their familiarity with it rather than the product’s price or effectiveness. Do to that fact, companies must provide the very best and most convincing advertisements as possible. Those companies have, in fact, done
Eating type of food which fits a person’s desire allow a great amount of happiness and satisfaction. Emma Brockes essay, “Science says there’s no such thing as “comfort food” we all beg to differ” targets on the idea of comfort food and people’s mood. The author talks about the direct relationship between happiness and food. She believes that comfort food has the ability to completely change people’s mood. In the essay, she mentions an experiment where participants were asked to provide two types of food, comfort food which makes them happy and regular food. Later in the experiment, they were shown an unpleasant video and they had to express their feelings about the video they saw. In result, participants were disturbed with the video and so then they began to crave for comfort food which they chose earlier in the experiment because that was certainly the only which would take their minds of off the video. In a similar manner, comfort foods as well tend to engage people towards a happy and positive place. Likewise, Pollan too, believes that people should follow their own food choices since it likely to encounter happiness. Food choices tend to be an extremely important factor in an individual’s life because it allows pleasant
In today’s society, the media, in many ways control the average consumer’s way of thinking. Bright billboards, catchy radio jingles, colorful magazine ads, and eye catching T.V ads play a major role in obesity in the United States. The one dollar double cheeseburger, offered by Burger King and McDonalds is a prime example. Burger King offers more meat with a better taste, and the advertisements are very colorful. Media tends to influence un-natural way of thinking among the average consumer. These ads usually misrepresent images of their target audience, using physically fit looking people in the fast food ads. A large number of these advertisements place a great deal of attention on the foods taste, rather than its nutritional value. This causes the consumer to overlook the risk and pay more attention to the taste and convenience. Well designed fast food media campaigns play a major role in the unnatural thinking that leads to obesity in the United States.
Organization’s vision and mission: Vision: To change the perception of burger as the junk food and transfer customers’ perception of burger as the efficient and healthy food intake.
When searching for the answer, people will seek it anywhere, and sadly, many fall into the vulgarity of this ad. Pollan explains this notion when he says, “When you can eat just about anything nature has to offer, deciding what you should eat will inevitably stir anxiety, especially when some of the potential foods on offer are liable to kill you” (3). Although a hamburger may not kill someone, the insinuation of sex in the ad can drag people down to the nasty greasy level of the burger.
By producing a regular number of identical sandwiches, this batch system helps ensure standard and predictable cycle times, consistent quality, greater predictability (less loss to error) and limits the amount of overlap activity; all of which align with McDonald’s objectives. To make a custom burger, the McDonald’s process ensures a level of freshness (relative to industry standards), but creates a delay for the customer. A “grill” sandwich is not processed until the next batch of that particular meat is cooked, and delivered to the customer as quickly as possible, with no opportunity to wait in a warming box. While this leads to fresher sandwiches, it also presents several logistical setbacks. Lead times for grill sandwiches are longer, which means that customers must wait longer, inconsistent with McDonald’s process objectives. This is particularly problematic with drive through customers, who must pull up to a parking space to wait, and may cause bottlenecks. Customers inside are asked to step aside and wait, which can be unnerving for a customer on a short lunch break. Notably, though, the cycle time during rush periods is increased, so the customer will not have to wait as long as during slow times. The grill sandwiches also present problems for the cashiers/servers who must deviate from their standard operation to accommodate

Advertising is a persuasive communication attempt to change or reinforce one’s prior attitude that is predictable of future behavior. We are not born with the attitudes for which we hold toward various things in our environment. Instead, we learn our feelings of favorability or unfavorability through information about the object through advertising or direct experience with the object, or some combination of the two. Furthermore, the main aim of advertising is to ‘persuade’ to consumer in order to generate new markets for production.
