Michael Ngo English 109W Essay Assignment #1 11/4/2003 Advertising: Wanting It, Selling It For any company to get the message out to the public that it has a great product or service they must advertise.

Settings of the two advertisements display a lot of comfort, portraying a fantasy stressful-free life that many would enjoy. A place even I would like to enjoy having. The only difference between the ads are the style and audience its being advertising to. Both cars really stand out in the ads because the background is slightly blurred out and the color of the surroundings is mostly dark. The two advertisements have similarities. For instance, the ads both contain the sepia colors of the background providing the viewer the remembrance of outdoor colors. Advertising has grown into a great business; therefore most of the advertising today is tasteful. Advertisers have learned to use techniques that appeal to the senses, such as taste, sight, sound, and even emotions. Consumers have to make their own decisions about buying products they see advertised; therefore advertisers should be fair and true about the usefulness and effectiveness of their products. 1 ...read more.
