Extracts from this document...


Comparison of two advertisements Advertising is an extremely common and successful way for companies to manipulate the public into buying their products. Without it, there would be little way for the public to hear about new products, hence, business would eventually fail. In this essay, I shall compare two advertisements that are selling similar products and discuss which one is the most successful.

The writing matches the picture because, as you can see, there is a drawing of Zinedine Zidane (a world renowned football player) wearing the boots and beating his opponents. The drawing supports the point that if you wear the Predators, you will be able to beat your opponents with ease. The Puma advertisement however, uses close-ups of their boots ...read more.
