An analysis of the Levi's commercials produced by Barte Bogle and Hegarty in the 1980's. Levi's jeans were first produced in the 1870's, and they were originally used for work. Minors would've usually worn them. They were appropriate for the minors to wear because they were strong and durable, and they would have lasted them a long time. Once the jeans had been around for a while, they became more popular, and more people started wearing them, especially the teenagers. In the 1950's, teenagers began to wear them, and they became a fashion statement.

The song in the background shows us that the other people in the laundrette are whispering about him, and the steam coming from the washing machine shows sexual tension. I think that the advertising company were successful in advertising the jeans, because they were projecting an image that it is now cool to wear Levi's jeans again. The adverts have had a great effect on a lot of people, because the high majority of people now in the 21st century are still wearing jeans, and that is for any age, and this proves just how successful Bogle, Bartle and Hegarty was in advertising Levi's jeans.
