Introduction

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.

The thong in turn questions his gender such as the builder's bum but this then changes with the position of the thong. This shows connotations of macho and masculine like real man.

The loaf is situated in the bottom right corner and emphasises the statement underneath '25% less carbs but you'll never guess' and is in a more central position than the builder.

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.

    Analysis From my results I deducted that 92.5% of adverts are stereotypical to women, and that women are unlikely to be portrayed as a non-stereotypical character, (e.g. business woman).
