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.

I have done this essay based on these five subjects commenting on each subject. The advert targets the audiences perfectly as women read gossip magazines but the bread is to attract men to make them buy it. I believe that the advert is effective and as it shows a unusual image and describes the product very well. ...read more.
