  3. 3. Globalization is the compilation of the set of cultures, ethics, language, advertising is constantly bombarded by criticism. It is accused of encouraging materialism and consumption, of stereotyping, of causing us to purchase items for which we have no need, of taking advantage of children, of manipulating our behavior, using sex to sell, and generally contributing to the downfall of our social system. Advertising is now playing a vital role in the wave of globalization. Brands media, are becoming global, • As standardization continues to proves itself as a very efficient way to advertise many debates these issue and prefer specialization. the question is, in fact, one of degree, with standardization and specialization at opposite ends of a continuum, and with many shades of adaptation between the two extremes • According to Belch,advertising appeals ‘’refer to the basis or approach used in the advertisement to attract attention or interest consistent and to influence their feelings toward the product,service or cause. • Foreign-produced advertisements did not appeal to more than half of European respondents in the three categories surveyed:taste,product differentiation,likability Culture: Semiootics. There Aree three basic types of sign:icon, index, and symbol. An iconbears a resemblance to its object. An index is a sign with a direct existentialconnection with its object as a matter of convention, agreement, or rule. Words and numbers are symbols:so is the red cross.Globalization has led toi
  4. 4. an increase of icons.Icons aree used because they are not linked with language. Language codes,signs,symbols, and gestures are all rituals of culture and define cultural groups.Semiotic habits aethe grammar of a culture.Culture is the shared ability to recognize, decode, and produce signs and symbolos,so culture also is a combiationof semiotic habits.Differences in semiotic habits delineate cultures. Semiotics, the study of signs and symbols, is in many countries an integralpart of advertising theory, although used more in some countries than in others.Some cultures use more symbols in advertyising than others. This is related to writng and language. Signs and symbols are an important part of association networks in our memory:package,color,letters,signs.Color can have a particular strong cultural meaning. Black is the colour of mourning in the Western world. InChina, white symbolizes mourning.
  5. 5. The art of advertising is to develop symbols or advertising properties as an association network. The importance of culture:In advertising and marketing literature, influences of culture on consumer behavior and perception of advertising are ast most anecdotal. They focus on the expressions of culture and little on thedifferences in values that are the couse of behavior and communication styles. Even when products are accepted in more than one culture, advetrtising will have to be adapted, and that means more than translating a central message. A linne that works in one market seldom works straightforwardlyt in another.l Linguistics: the science of language, including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and historical linguistics. Ethics: Advertising is constantly bombarded by criticism. It is accused of encouraging materialism and consumption, of stereotyping, of causing us to purchase items for which we have no need, of taking advantage of children, of manipulating our behavior, using sex to sell, and generally contributing to the downfall of our social system. Law and ethics are not coterminous. The law is confined by limitations on government authority, principally through the Constitution, while ethics bear no such
  6. 6. limitations. Ethics, therefore, should be subject to a higher standard of expectation than law. First Advertising Campaign: By far the hottest ads to date from footwear company Skechers will be a series of ads for an upcoming fall campaign featuring Christina Aquilera in poses sure to raise the blood pressure of any normal human. There are three ads in the series which will run internationally beginning in August. Each ad shows double images of Aguilera. The firts portrays Aguilera as a nurse aiding a patient, the second shows her as teacher and student and the third shows her getting some legal treatment from herself dressed as we wished all police officers would dress - well, at least the hot ones. On her agreement to work with Skechers, Aguilera said, "I agreed to be part of Skechers' international marketing team because I like its image -- youthful but edgy. It has attitude and is willing to try new ideas -- refreshing," Corrective Advertising, which is a form of affirmative disclosure that is intended to correct lingering deception that results from a long history of deceiving the consumer.
  7. 7. What is common ion the three ads? The advertising idea in this ad is that Skechers is a very when interest groups over react and can't see a joke for the joke it is. A bunch of American nurses have complained about a recent Skechers ad featuring Christina Aguilera dressed in nurse fantasy (fantasy, get it?) attire. Center For Nursing Advocacy Executive Director Sandy Summers said, "This ad simultaneously exploits the 'naughty nurse' and the battleaxe/Nurse Ratched stereotypes, setting the nurse up both as an available sex object and a mock- malevolent authority figure, rather than a competent professional." The nursing profession is considered as a humanitarian job where they are trained to take full care of the sick, injured, or age, to assist surgeons in surgical operations. The whole profession automatically deserves a lot of respect. And honor. In this ad, the whole profession is put in degrading level of shallowness, where a pop star is put to arise our attention and many other things. However, critically thinking, the elements of this ad surely do not satisfy the marketer's goal a expected. In this ad, the object of desire is surely not Skechers, and barely the character which represent our potential clients of Skechers footwear. Attention is drawn towards the sexy Christina Aguilera in 6that fantasy nurse uniform she is wearing, and if she were an idol of teenagers. The latter image is overshadowing the other character which is the teenage girl wearing Skechers. So, at the end of the the sex symbol, Christina Aguilera is the one being remembered and not Skechers as the advertisers want to.

  10. 10. Description of the ad: Industry watchdogs said on Wednesday that a brand-building advertisement by the newspaper sector featuring an oversized stiletto-heeled shoe skewering a businessman in a pool of blood was offensive because it trivialised and stylised violence. The Newspaper Marketing Agency ad nicknamed "killer heels", created by TBWA London, which shows a man spiked on a stiletto has been banned by the ever vigilant watchdog ASA. The ad received 81 complaints it was offensively sexist and overly violent. The ASA
  11. 11. said about the ad "featuring an oversized stiletto-heeled shoe skewering a businessman in a pool of blood was offensive because it trivialized and stylized violence." Despite the visual pun being 'cartoon-like' to avoid offence, people objected to the ad. "The advertisers claimed that, because the image was removed from reality and in a fashion context, it would not be seen to condone or encourage violence or homicide" the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) said... The Newspaper Marketing Agency Newspapers have enormous potential for influencing customers. The NMA aims to make advertisers, agencies and media planners more aware of this power. On our site we present the most compelling case studies, the most recent research and the most innovative creative work in the industry. Above all, we believe that only by acting as an independent, impartial body can we credibly deliver our message. How can we adjust this ad to it in our Lebanese society: To adjust this print ad, we proposed changing some details using the same advertising idea, but in a reduced level of violence. To eliminate the probability of attracting any negative feedback, we chose to be more humoristic instead of violent in the corrected ad. While keeping the shock element alive, we chose to show a lady's legs wearing high heels instead of the heels only. We replaced the violently murdered man in the original ad with a bunch of people in miniature form escaping the woman with high heels making a step forward. The "Killer heels" concept remains effective with more sarcasm and feminist power added. The pool of blood was removed, and the fear appeal remained with the fear of the people of being crushed by the lady's
  12. 12. "killer heels". In that way, we kept the spirit of the ad alive only with no murder scene involved so as to follow the concept of "the less violent, the more accepted."
