Extracts from this document...


How does the advertisement for 'VO5 Fade Defy' appeal to its target audience? Intro I think the purpose of 'VO5 fade defy' advertisement or any television advert is to help sell a product, also to show you how the products works or how you will benefit from whatever is being advertised. I think the target audience, for this particular advert is aim at late teens (Eighteen's) 18's to late (forties) 40's, which in who have coloured their hair.

At the start of the advert there is a medium shot showing the doctor, nurse and the patient so that you get the idea of what is happing. There is a high angle bird's eye camera shot of Miss Pearce having her hair washed, to show you how the product work and what it makes you feel like.
