After reviewing the Lyndon B. Johnson “Daisy Ad” and the “I’m Mad” advertisement by Ronald Regan for support of Barry Goldwater, there are similarities between the two videos as well as vast differences. The Johnson campaign committee made a very dramatic dramatization of what would happen if the people of the United States elected Goldwater for president in 1964, portraying that if Goldwater were elected the entire nation would be thrown into war. During this terrible time frame which was referred to as the Cold War, people were constantly on edge of fear of a nuclear attack from the Soviet Union and its allies, many U.S. citizens were accused of treason and blackballed. Johnson wanted to use the fear and gullibility of the nation at that time to gain an advantage in the presidential campaign. Meanwhile, Regan spent the entirety of the Goldwater ad attempting to clear the dirt away from the Goldwater family. But, in this advertisement for Goldwater, Regan does little to retract the statements made by the Johnson ad, instead he tries to justify that the country needs someone impulsive to keep the nation on edge and to keep the nations defenses at a maximum.
Both videos portray attempts by both candidates to manipulate the voters through fear of an imminent attack on the U.S. by Soviet forces. The only differences in the videos is how they catered the message to the viewers, with the Johnson ad being a direct attempt to slander the opponent, whilst the Goldwater ad was a mere rebuke by Regan attempting to defend a friend. After comparing both videos, they fit perfectly within the framework of the critical approach, in that each video attempted to change society; each video wanting the same goal of a fearful and easily manipulated group of voters to allow for victory on their side for the presidential campaign of 1964.…...

Ad Analysis

...Jack Holt Ad Analysis 10/6/11 Ethos When someone wants to persuade another person to believe something they use different types of rhetoric to try and convey their message. One of the types of rhetorical appeals is ethos, which uses character conveys to their message. An ad for a Pantene hair product uses this appeal. In the ad the actress Eva Mendes is the main focus; she covers around three quarters of the page and the picture is mostly of her head. Her hair is down and very prominent. Right next to her face is the Pantene logo in big letters. Underneath the picture is a quote long from Eva Mendes with certain words highlighted, a small picture of the products, and subtitle which says “Zero Fear of Breakage 100% More Strength”. This ad is in People magazine which targets women ages 20 to 50, most of whom are buying hair products. By using Eva Mendes as a spokes person creates an ethological appeal. The composition of the image forces the audience to focus on her long flowing hair. The message is that since Eva Mendes, successful and beautiful actress, who clearly has great hair uses this product, you are too. People are more likely to trust an ad with Eva Mendes in it then just a normal model because people are more familiar with her and know her character. Logos Another rhetorical appeal that companies use in advertising is logos; this targets the consumer’s logic to persuade him/her into buying their product. Aprica uses this appeal in their “MOTO...

Ad-Lider

...Brad Fry A00313866 Ad-Lider Embalagens, SA 1. The methodologies of the market research used by Ad-Lider were focus groups and intercept interviews. There were three separate focus groups which were conducted. Two of these groups were carried out in Sao Paulo, while the other was in Rio de Janeiro. In Sao Paulo, one group consisted of housewives living in apartments, while the other was housewives living in houses. In Rio, the group consisted of housewives living in apartments. The profile of Sao Paulo women living in houses were married, had children, ages 28-40, and had a high school education. The Sao Paulo women living in apartments were either married or single, ages 28-39, and had professional careers. The Rio participants consisted of women who were either single or divorced, ages 32-42, with or without children, and had a high school education. The Rio participants were active in exercise programs while the Sao Paulo participants were not involved in exercise programs. I believe that it is important to note that these focus groups were made entirely of women. In appendix four, under consumer data, it shows that 25% of all garbage bag purchases are made by males (as determined by the individual interviews). The focus groups are cutting out a quarter of Ad-Lider’s potential customers. It is also important to note that the focus groups were entirely type A and B social classes. This demographic is only 19% of Brazilian households, and only 52% of the...

Daisy Miller

...Hannah Banks E. Connor EN 210-016 15 February 2013 The Distance between the Reader and Characters in Realism Realism has a way of connecting with readers unlike any other type of literature prior with its honest and brutal interpretation on life. It not only focuses on only the truth and what is real but it looks at things in ways that had never been seen in a certain light before. Realism in American started to flourish in the following years after the civil war. This essay will briefly explain ways this takes place. Realism has a set of criteria that make it unique, and one of the critics doing so is William Cain. Morality, subjectivity, psychology, and the types of characters all help mold realism into what it is. Through the characters and how distant they are to the audience, it is easy to see how both Henry James’s “Daisy Miller: A Study” and Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” fit well within Cain’s ideas on realism in Literary Realism in America. When reading “Daisy Miller: A Study” the main character and protagonist is Winterbourne, but the most intriguing character is Daisy Miller. Unlike Winterbourne, you do not have access to her thoughts, and it is up to you and Winterbourne’s thoughts to determine what to think of her. “He had never yet heard a young girl express herself in just this fashion; never, at least, save in cases where to say such things seemed a kind of demonstrative evidence of a certain laxity of deportment. And yet...

Electric Daisy Carnival

...Darlin Tino 09/14/13 English 121 Memoir Paper Electric Daisy Carnival The bright, colorful beams of light illuminated the night sky. Never in my life have I seen an image full of neon colors, glow in the dark items, brilliant lights, and music all caused by energetic people. There was a huge amount of daisies that caught my eye, especially the very tall, bright, moving daisy. It was a world of fantasy. There was a huge old school stereo standing in about ten feet tall and twelve feet wide. Enormous butterflies and caterpillars were roaming around. The Gingerbread Man, the Teletubbies, and Ernie from Sesame Street were all present. This was just too much for me, but it put a silly smile on my face that I carried for the rest of the night. My feelings were the lava from a volcano ready to erupt. The nervous feeling I had disappeared in an instant. My eyes were popped open like an owl’s eyes that never seem to close. I didn’t want to blink, because I did not want to miss a second. I froze for a good amount of time trying to take in the good vibes that stuffed the air. I took a deep breath before I stepped foot into the fantasy planet that was full of life, bad influence, and unpredictable outcomes. The people added a glow to the place. Females wore poufy skirts, fuzzy boots, and flowered headbands. The males had eye-catching t-shirts. Both were clothed in all sorts of colors blending in with the theme. They wore multicolored beaded bracelets that were being traded...

They are targeting the exact same youth but in very different ways. My goal is to break the their interpretations and show what the ads are trying to represent in the companies eye. Reaching the target audience is the key for sales and with marketing departments being the the crucial part of business you know they are always coming up with ways to find them. My first Reebok article is cut in half. On one side of the photograph is superstar rap artists Jay-Z. The other side of the photograph is a picture of the projects he grew up in. You are able to catch a glimpse of a drug dealer's arm which has abut six rubber bands around it. In Jay-Z's part of the photograph he's in the penthouse suite overlooking downtown New York City. He's in a professional suit and is sitting in an expensive brown lunge chair. The other side of the photograph is black and white unlike Jay-Z's portion. Your able to really see the details of the photograph of an image portraying a younger Shawn Carter “aka” Jay-Z. This little article has an amazing amount of subtle messages.

Why Did Daisy Stay

...What happened that night at the Buchannan dinner table??? The Great Gatsby is a novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald that tells the story of the ‘great’ Jay Gatsby, but along with his story we learn about Daisy Buchannan the love of his life and their torrid love affair. It seemed as though Daisy was ready to leave her husband Tom in Chapter VII (Fitzgerald pg. 134) but by the end of the novel Daisy has chosen to run away to New York with Tom leaving Gatsby behind without saying anything. The novel did not go into any detail as to why Daisy chooses to stay with Tom, but in one scene after all of the chaos form the brief trip to the city we see Tom and Daisy sitting at the kitchen table over a cold dinner and some ale talking, the reader is not told what is said (Fitzgerald pg. 146). The reader can infer that several things were discussed at the dinner table that evening to make Daisy leave Gatsby behind, such as Tom’s old money and ability to provide, Gatsby’s new money and his reputation, as well as Daisy’s herself. There are several good reasons why Daisy Buchannan stays with her husband Tom instead of leaving him for Gatsby. One of the reasons that she could’ve chosen to stay is the same reason that she chooses to marry Tom in the first place; he was a safe secure choice. Tom came from money, old money, and to someone like Daisy who was also of old money this was a way to a secure future without worry. The reader is made aware of Tom’s wealth is Chapter 4 when Jordan Baker...

Daisy Miller

...English 102 20 February 2014 Question 5: Question 5: Women at the End of the 19th Century Daisy Miller is the female main character in the short story by Henry James. Mr. Winterbourne describes her as a pretty American flirt, suggesting she is somewhat liberal and improper, as per the young man’s impression. Mr. Winterbourne is also a relatively young American man, about twenty-seven years old. He has spent a lot of time in Europe, becoming accustomed to a different world view from that of the American family and more specifically that of Daisy Miller. When the story begins, Winterbourne is seated at the garden of a hotel in Vevey when he meets Daisy’s younger brother Randolph, a pleasant little fellow, brave enough to ask a stranger for sugar, and justifying his request by saying that he is an American boy who misses candy from back home. When his sister Daisy appears and is introduced to Winterbourne, he expects her to be as proper and uptight as the women in Geneva. He even fears for his image, as he struggles to decide what would be proper for him to say to her, considering that he found her attractive. However, Winterbourne is put at ease when he finds Daisy more liberated than he had seen in a long time. When James describes her, as “…very charming; but how deucedly sociable” (12), he gives the impression that he had expected her to exercise some form of restraint upon their acquaintance, since they had just met. He did enjoy her company, but he certainly wasn’t...

Daisy Miller Review

...Why Daisy Miller is a Study on Daisy Miller Daisy Miller is a novel written by Henry James and was first published in the summer of the year 1877. Daisy Miller, the novel, brought international success to Henry James and has been hailed as the first “international novel” by many, and I agree that this novel is known worldwide. However, the novel is not as famous as it is now as it was in the year it was first published. The full title of the book is Daisy Miller: A Study and the content holds truth to its title as the story progresses through observations on the character of Daisy. The story of Daisy Miller does not actually begin with Daisy Miller herself or her as the narrator of the story. It first begins in Vevey, Switzerland with a young American man named Winterbourne, who is the narrator of the story. Winterbourne first meets, not Daisy, but the girl’s younger brother Randolph Miller. Winterbourne later becomes acquaintances with Daisy Miller, whom he finds intriguing and different from the European girls as she is an American, and accompanies her on a trip to the famed castle nearby. After the two part ways in the end of part one, Winterbourne is still curious about Daisy Miller. He goes to Rome, Italy; where his aunt has an apartment, to visit Daisy whom he had promised to meet. When he arrives, his aunt informs him of the latest gossips surrounding Daisy, as the young American girl has become acquainted with many gentlemen friends in Rome; the most talked...

Daisy Miller

...To begin with, “Daisy Miller” is a short novella where the main character Daisy miller whose real name is Annie P. Miller refuses to follow the strict and severe Europeanpropriety laws that directbehavior, especially relations between young andunmarried ladies with gentleman like Mr. Wnterbourne or Mr. Giovanelli .She becomes the topic of discussion and raises many eyebrows among the noble society of the countries she lives in. The novella is in the genre of comedy and tragedy of manners.Among all the symbols of the story the ones that impressed me a lot where the chosen locations for the actions to take place, the combinations of old and new and also the name selection of the main characterThe locations of the novel were not chosen advisedly though it is not mentioned in the novella. The author wants to bring out the argument that new is not always perceived. The author of “Daisy Miller” Henry James wants to remind us of romantic stories that happened in the locations and also the history of the old countries and buildings where the actions of the novella take place, but he does it implicitly. For example, the places where Miss Miller and her family lived in: Rome and Geneve, the coliseum where Daisy’s encounter with Mr. Winterbourne takes place. All these places contain a huge history and different love stories which are somehow thematically and secretly connected to “Daisy Miller”. I would like to mention also the name selection for the main character Daisy Miller whose...

Driving Miss Daisy

...Ms. Daisy Is A Good Driver Tony Calloway Saint Joseph College of Maine Ms. Daisy Is A Good Driver As the baby boomers head toward senescence, they will account for a growing percentage of the population, and thus an increasing proportion of people on the road (Katherine Mikel 2008). Driving helps older people stay independent and mobile. And family members of these elderly parents and relatives usually feel too pushy and domineering to insist that their loved one is no longer able to remain independent. However, some older drivers do recognize their personal and civic duty to be responsible and take precautions when getting behind the wheel, such as only driving during daylight hours, taking well-known roads, and traveling a safe distance behind other drivers. In 2012, there were almost 36 million licensed drivers ages 65 and older in the United States. Per mile traveled, fatal crash rates increase noticeably starting at age’s 70‒74 and are highest among drivers age 85 and older. These octogenarians have a higher collision rate per mile traveled of any age groups except for teens, and their rate of fatal collisions per mile traveled is the highest of all drivers. The risk of injured or killed in a motor vehicle crash increases with age. An average of 586 older adults is injured every day in crashes. In 2012, more than 5,560 older adults were killed, and more than 214,000 injured in motor vehicle crashes. That amounts to 15 older adults killed and...
