    • Donald Gunn  Worked as Creative Director for a very large advertising company called Leo Burnett.  “What makes some advertisements successful?”  Decided to take a year off from his job and analyzed as many commercials as he could. He decided that there are 12 different types, or “formats” of all successful advertisements.

Parody / Borrowed Format *Few ads are ONLY 1 type – just like music, ads can be several types at the same time.
    • Remember  Many songs use more than one type of music (hip/hop and pop)  Some movies combine different styles (comedy and adventure)  Ads also mix different types. The main idea of learning these types of advertising is to make you understand what techniques are being used to make you want to buy what advertisers are selling. If you understand how products are being shown to you, you can make better choices in what you decide to spend your money on.
    • Type 1: Demo  Show the product and what it can do. This type usually falls into two categories: aggressive and repetitive ("hard sell"), or simple presentation without pressuring the viewer directly ("soft sell").  Ginsu  Samsonite  Calamari
    • Type 2: Show the Problem / Solution  The basic idea of this type of ad is "Here is a problem - this product can solve it". This is also one of the oldest and most popular of all advertising types. Snuggie Dropped Call Lunk

    • Review:  How many different types of advertising?  What is the name of the man who introduced this idea?  What was his job? What company did he work for?  How long did he study commercials?  What is the first type of commercial? The second?  What is the difference between “hard sell” and “soft sell” techniques? Which type do you prefer?  What is „calamari‟? What‟s a LUNK?  Complete these sentences:    “In Japan, the hand can be used as a _______.” “But wait – there‟s ______.” “________ ________ would you pay?”
