Naimah Akthar 10.5 Analysing Television Adverts Product...impulse tease........................... Production Company.............................. What is the target audience for the advert? How do you know? It's for young adults (women and teenagers) - because all the ladies in the advert are between aged 20-25 and themselves are spraying onto their body. What needs is the advert playing on? How? * Attention-because all the ladies want the man attention by spraying onto their body * Prominence * Dominant Is this a narrative advert (telling a story) or is it meant to simply give us an impression of the product?

Shots and Angles What kinds of shots are the most common? Why? Close up-to see the actual deodorant and the woman's in the advert. Mid shot-to see the impulse tease background and the man.

They have used this type of song especially for young adults whereas if it was a old song it wouldn't catch the target audience. What is the pace of the music? Does the pace change? Why? The pace of the music is fast because the cuts are fast as well. They have made the song fast because it doesn't want to be old and boring fro young adults. What effect do the words of the song have on the audience? The first part of the song says (Push it, ohhh baby). The song is from 'salt and pepper'. This has an effect because the ladies desire the man attention. Does it work? How effective do you think the advert is? Explain your answer. It is really effective because they have used the kind of music that young adults like and the type of clothes as well. They have also used different types of clothes for each woman to make it eye-catching. Also the type of colours and the pace of cuts making it fast and using colours that suits the product which is Impulse tease. ...read more.
