Media Coursework- Hovis Advert The hovis advertisement appeals to various audience types. Macho, heterosexual, working males are targeted with the image but also dieters, health conscious types of any age and any ages that the Hovis Bread appeals to. The thong sets a comical tone and is a comical attempt to target the audience. This advert is to advertise and promote the brand of bread which in this case is Hovis.
