Advertisements appear everywhere--- on billboards, tv, pop-up windows on the internet..Sometimes these advertisements are very sarcastic and they affect our thinking. This website is created to investigate three different advertisements and look at the creativity of these. Also, we will find out whether they promote their items correctly, and suggest how consumers can avoid being misled by advertisements. The three advertisements we choose to demonstrate how to think through ads are the Coca Cola, Nike (shoes) and Honda Accord (car)ads.
Advertisements affect our way of thinking very much as we all watch TVs, look at billboards, go on the Internet...Some advertisements are indecent and bad, as the government does not control the content of them. If we do not use a correct way to interpret these ads, our thinking will be affected. Therefore it is important for us to educate people about this. Advertisements are interesting to work on and we all hope that through this website, you will know how to interpret advertisements correctly.
Our intended audience is possibly everyone who watches television and has watched advertisements before. We hope to make them smart consumers and not be misled by advertisements.
