As we watched the Super Bowl this past Sunday, we saw a great game and we got our best laughs from the advertisements. Please watch the compilation of the top 10 ads from that night. 1. When finished viewing the video post to the blog, telling us (your fellow peers and I), which advertisement you chose as most effective? 2. Do the research to back up your argument. 3. Was the ad creative and did they use humor to build their case? 4. Do they appeal to the audience’s emotions and do they use real life examples? Explain. 5. What are the other points of view or would there be objections and how do they, the advertiser, counter it? 6. Does the ad insult anyone or get personal (this is a no, no)?

Using the pictures below and without having any background knowledge about them, please write a descriptive glib showing, not telling me what you see. (e.g. Telling: “The dog is nice.” – Showing: “The dog’s coat of fur is as soft as silk. When he cuddles with me I am in a place of peace and calm.”) Use imagery (five senses) to get even more descriptive.
