Introduction

Write a detailed analysis of the Renault Clio advert referring to the use of the three codes and bricolage (intertextual references) Advertising is important for all businesses; it is the difference between millions and thousands and sometimes it is the difference between profit and loss.

There are three main intertextual references in the advert. The use of `Papa and Nicole' is an intertextual reference as they have already been used in various Clio adverts. The use of Vic and Bob is another example as is the scene where Bob is banging on the window of the church trying to get Nicole not to marry Vic, but to run away with him.
