Got Milk? AD   Leave a comment

1) What aspect of your culture jam do you find most successful and why?

The aspect most successful in the ad would be how in the photo, you can tell that the children are starving and wasting away to the point where you can only see their bones. You can tell they are not healthy and it opens the eyes to the viewers of the poster ad.

2) What aspect of your culture jam do you find least successful and why?

The least successful part of the culture jam would be that there is not a lot of details used to make it eye catching. Another unsuccessful part would be that people don’t really know what is being advertise because there is nothing significant that would make clear sense right away.

3) If you could do this project again, what changes would you make to improve it?

If I were to do the poster over again, I probably would’ve added more writing to it but not a lot so it doesn’t over crowd the meaning behind it.

Absolute Vodka Ad

1) What aspect of your culture jam do you find most successful and why?

 The aspect that is most successful in this ad is the bottles posing as the disco balls and having silhouettes of bad dancers showing embarrassment that can be the result of having alcohol.

2) What aspect of your culture jam do you find least successful and why?

The silhouettes of the people dancing might be hard for the viewers to tell that they are dancing, it may just seem like they are posing which might not make sense with the rest of the ad to some.

3) If you could do this project again, what changes would you make to improve it?

 If I could do the poster ad again, I would change the white faded areas around the people dancing to make it look clears and more put together and brighten the light beams.

Acting Agency Ad   Leave a comment

 

 

 

1) What aspect of your culture jam do you find most successful and why?

I think that the aspect that is most successful about my ad is that it shows that Hollywood is not all glamorous and perfect, it can lead someone’s life to a very bad state. Once you get on that train, you are heading straight for a whurl wind of diaster once your career takes off, you’re only destined to crash and burn.

2) What aspect of your culture jam do you find least successful and why?

 I think the least successful part of my ad was that you can’t tell what exactly the ad is advertising. There is nothing on the ad that would tell the viewer the compnay or anything in particular.

3) If you could do this project again, what changes would you make to improve it?

 I’d be more specifc on the ad what I was refering to and advertising. But besides that, I think the ad looks very well done.

Rebecca Black New EP in the Works   Leave a comment

She’s back! After releasing her song Friday that topped the charts because of an unexpected amount of views, 110,449,304 to be exact,  and the annoying auto-tuned voice grew on people. Now we can expect more from Rebecca Black because she is working on new tracks with producer named Charlton Pettus who is best known for Tears For Fears after they became popular. Let’s hope the recording studio can realtor her voice to make her voice at least tolerable.

“Teen Mom” Star Paid For Famous Fight Video   Leave a comment

The show “Teen Mom” became a hit series for MTV in 2009, so it produced a second season called “Teen Mom 2”. One of the teen moms in the second season Jenelle Evans is a wild child, who has been arrested twice, got custody taken away, and she had a fight with a girl filmed. This fight video was all over the media and became famous. The video showed Evans putting the victim in a headlock, beating her to the ground, and punching her in the face, stomach and head, while on her her friends was filming and the rest were cheering her on. Sources revealed it was over her ex-boyfriend. A friend of Jenlle’s, who was cheering her on, told the press that after the video had been filmed it was Jenelle and her friends idea to sell it to someone with connections with the media, and was sold for $5,000. Jenelle tried getting more money out of it, saying, “You wouldn’t get any money if I wasn’t famous!”. It’s sad to think someone would start a fight and hurt someone to make money when the show already pays $5,000 per episode or $60,000-$65,000 per season.

Adbusters: Calvin Klien   Leave a comment

1. What company does the advertisement represent/subvert?

The company that is being advertised is Calvin Klien.

2. What kind of product(s) is being advertised?

There is no intial product being sold in this advertisement but they are advertising the false use of men’s looks in Calvin Klien’s models. The people who wear the product of Calvin Klien (clothing, underwear, colone) don’t lok like the guys who model it, with abs, a tan, a beautiful smile, good-looking face.

3. What imagery is used in the advertisement to subvert?

 The hairy, chubby man is the imagery for this advertisment because it’s showing the “reality” of men who wear the product. It shows that not all mean are perfect and abercrombie model worthy.

4. What message (text, copy) is used in the advertisement?

 “Reality for Men” is the message being used in the advertisement because it’s showing that your standards for men shouldn’t be too high and compare your men to the models used in advertisments because every poster ad is airbrushed to be perfect to increase sales.

5. How are the elements and principles of design used to convey a message?

 Contrast is used in this ad because in the Calvin Klien posters they are black and white as well, so  probably just copying the company’s style of the posters.

6. Who is the target audience of the advertisement?

 The targeted audience would be mostly men because it shows them the truth about themselves and that they don’t need to be perfect. In my opinion it also targets women, only to show them that men don’t look perfect, so they shouldn’t have their standards so high.

7. Does the ad jam convey a clear and successful message?

 Yes because there are words and a picture so people can understand with the picture showing that, that is the reality of men.

8. How could the ad jam be improved?

I would not change this ad at all because I think it conveys the message easily and there’s no room or need for change.
