* The techniques in advertising are used for persuasion which helps convince the audience

certain point of view. The techniques used are; hidden messages, overt messages,
emotional responses, solution to a problem, fear, concern, celebrity endorsement,
rhetorical questions, testimonial, repetition and humor.
Appeal to Emotion and Emotional Responses
* The first advert we are analyzing is the RSPCA – Home for Life Advert.
* In the advert it shows a cat waiting outside staring and crying whilst looking
into an empty living room waiting for their owner to get home. The advert
begins the gloomy lighting showing the sadness of the cat missing its owner.
The next clip shows a happy memory in an loving environment with bright
warming orangey tone to the lighting. Then it goes back to a setting like
the beginning where the cat is sat waiting at the window. Following this
you see a worker for RSPCA coming to pick up the cat as the owner has
* This advert is 1 minute and 32 to seconds long and in this time it really
grabs your attention with emotions pulling you in.
* This structure of this advert is a realist advert. It shows the daily struggles
that happen to pets when their owners pass away. The hidden message
behind this is ‘what will happen to your pet when you pass away?’. This
advert leaves multiple thoughts and questions in your head that are
unanswered it does this by using a technique called rhetorical questions.
* There is a sentence in the advert that really affects you emotionally ‘your
pets give you’re their love, their trust and their loyalty’ and ‘and you
promise to always be there for them?’ ‘But what happens if you pass away?’
* They make a note of the ‘FREE’ Service, this makes you think that it
doesn’t cost anything to give your pet still a great life after you have
* Using the phrase ‘we can help take care of your pet after you have gone’.
This gives you hope that your pet will still have a happy life without you
and that you can trust RSPCA to take care of them.
* The ideology target audience for this advert would be people who have
* The object and the main feature of this advert is the pets that will need
someone when you pass away.
* The meaning is because owners have a strong emotional attachment to
their pets that when they are shown an example of something possible bad
happening (owners dying, pet being lonely), that they will feel more
inclined to do something about it. For example this advert shows
possibilities that you could die and leave you with questions of who will
look after your pet if you don’t get the home for life information pack.
*Brad Pitt’s Levi Commercial
* Filmed in 1991, this advert is over 25 years old. It features the Hollywood Actor Brad Pitt in his
young career. He is advertising Levi’s Jeans.
* Narrative style: Brad has just been give his bail, he exits wearing just a white tee and his boxers.
He has a stunning woman waiting beside a car for him ready to pick him up. The couple connect
via the woman passing Brad a pair of Levi jeans, they then share a intimate moment before
gloating at the grumpy officer. Showing off his girl.
* The hidden messages are that even though Brad had been in prison, he has a beautiful girl and a
nice car waiting for him, where as the guard probably doesn't’t have that yet he's not a criminal. –
This advert almost implies that due to him owning a pair of Levi jeans he's still has a decent life.
If you buy these jeans you might find yourself with a stunning girl and a nice car.
* In this advert, Brad is the protagonist and the guard is the antagonist in this as he thinks he's the
leader but then gets jealous of Brad and what he still has even though he has been locked up in
* Non realist as when Brad leaves the jail he’s in the middle of some hot desert.
* The duration is 59 seconds long.
* If you buy Levi jeans they're long lasting – lasting through prison time.
