Advertising Assignment.

Extracts from this document...


Advertising Assignment The first advert I'm studying is "Ivory Soap" from the past. It was from around the 1950 s. The target audience is housewives and mothers around the ages of 25- 50.

The role in all of the Tesco adverts are the exact same for the mother in law (grandparent) she always get what she wants and is lazy and very devoted to having everything made by Tesco.
