1. Think back to commercials you grew up watching. Any stand out to you? If so, why? Was it a catchy jingle? Your favorite cereal or toy? What makes it memorable?
I included several commercials from my youth that I still remember, mostly because of the catchy jingles.
2. How does marketing influence our perception of reality? Think about beer and truck commercials during football games: all the bars are filled with young, beautiful people drinking and having a fun time. Truck commercials sell the idea of rugged manhood: Dodge Ram, Chevy Silverado and Ford F-150 shows young good looking men usually out in the country hauling hay or driving over rough terrain. Likewise, commercials for cars like Buick and Lexus show an upscale couple out on the town. Does this reflect reality? What is the appeal, and how does the psychology of advertising sell us this idea.
Choose one of the above questions and respond using specific examples , including a short video if you have one to support your point.
Also please address the following:
