    27. 27. Analyze an Alcohol Ad<br />1. Color & Design<br />How is color used to attract your <br />attention?<br />What kinds of technologies were<br />used to construct this message?<br />
    28. 28. 2. Language<br />“The Captain was here.<br />Don’t drink until you’re 21. <br />Captain’s orders.”<br />What comes to mind when you see<br />these words and phrases?<br />What feelings do you experience<br />when looking at the picture?<br />

    30. 30. 4. Subtext<br />The ad suggests a meaning. It doesn’t state the meaning directly. <br />What are some possible messages that the advertiser wants you to think or feel after viewing this ad? <br />
    31. 31. 4. Subtext<br />I can’t wait to be 21 so I can drink alcohol.<br />
    32. 32. 4. Subtext<br />I can’t wait to be 21 so I can drink alcohol.<br />A girl who drinks alcohol will dress and act in a sexual way.<br />
    33. 33. 4. Subtext<br />I can’t wait to be 21 so I can drink alcohol.<br />A girl who drinks alcohol will dress and act in a sexual way.<br />Girls who drink alcohol are attractive and fun to be with.<br />

    35. 35. Captain Morgan Deconstructed<br />1. Color & Design<br />Red is a big contrast with the dark colors of the outdoor, nighttime setting.<br />3. Relationships<br />The Captain looks<br />interested in the girl. <br />She’s the center of <br />attention.<br />The drawn cartoon character and cartoon-like boots contrast with the realistic photograph.<br />4. Subtext<br /><ul><li>You’ll get attention if </li></ul>you drink alcohol.<br /><ul><li>You can dress and act</li></ul>outrageously if you drink alcohol.<br />2. Language <br />The slogan is used on many <br />Captain Morgan ads– it’s<br />familiar to people.<br />5. Accuracy<br />When people drink, they can do stupid things to make themselves the center of attention – in a very negative and dangerous way.<br />The phrase, “Don’t drink until<br />you’re 21” makes drinking seem<br />like an adult activity. But the girl depicted in the photo looks like a teen. <br />
