H/W 8/10/03 Susie Willmott My Chocolate Bar Advert Analysis Media Categories In this chocolate bar advert, the slogan and the chocolate bar name are the biggest features of the copy. The name of the chocolate bar, 'Elevation,' is illuminated by intense colours, such as orange, red and yellow; all fiery, energetic shades, which back up the name 'Elevation,' that implies strength and penetrating energy. The slogan in the 'Elevation' chocolate bar advert is 'Resist Gravity,' the font being conspicuous and immense, it is telling the spectators that if they bought 'Elevation,' they wouldn't just get the gorgeous chocolate and creamy center, but they will also be buying the power to defy gravity and boost their sophistication and popularity.

The fifth image contains a long shot of the boy accomplishing a rodeo 360 move on his skateboard, (a huge trick that involves the skater going upside down).

I think this advert would be found in teen magazine because it's fun, a small story and involves something tasty! It could also be found on a shop wall, displayed boldly to all the potential-buyers. Media Technologies This advert is presented in vibrant colours, bold headlines and has a comic strip look to grab the teenager's attention from the second he or she walks into the shop and sees the advert. Each picture, in the layout, tells a part of the story to the best degree through camera angles and the distance from the scene. Using two of the most popular obsessions in a teenager's life, comics and skating, this advert stands out incredibly and fires 'notice me' vibes at the passer by.
