Hi, guys! Here’s what you should be doing:
- Read the assignment guidelines I passed out in class, on the Ad Analysis.
- Start tracking the ads you see: write down the product advertised, so you have an actual written copy of what you saw. It’s not crucial that you catch absolutely ever ad you see, but try to be alert and get as many as possible. We’ll compare notes early next week.
- Start looking for your ad. Pick some products you use in every day life, and do Google searches for the TV spots they create. You’re looking for a 30-60 second ad that sends a message about the product, rather than just conveying information. You’ll be asked to turn in a 1-2 paragraph description of your ad on Wednesday, October 26.
