Ads in today’s society

So in today’s society commercials are always trying to get our attention. They have only 30 seconds to a minute to grab our attention or keep us interested in their product. Every commercial has its own appeal in order to get our attention. One night my mom and I stumbled across this commercial  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIDaX0eMeIk and we got to talking about it. She had made the comment that that particular commercial would not get her to buy that product. When I asked why she responded that because it did not make her want to get Oreos and that it was a waste of money on the commercial because it was not even funny or enticing. I had said that they had made that commercial for entertainment and so that when you came across Oreos you would remember that funny commercial. Also that you would want to buy them because you would want to see if you liked the cream or the cookie better and possibly ask your friends which they liked as well. It was interesting to find that the commercial did not appeal to my mom, but my brother and I thought it was really funny. I then told my mom they probably were not even targeting older adults but more teenagers and kids with this advertisement. Overall, it was a very interesting conversation, especially because it had to do with what we are talking about in class.
