Political Cartoon #2

Cartoon #2 Link

Summary: The cartoon depicts a boss of an advertising agency approving her employee’s ad plan. However they do not have a product to sell yet.

Analysis: This cartoon makes an excellent point about advertising in general. It shows that despite the product many advertisements are purely based on building habits and affecting people subconsciously. There isn’t even a product to be sold yet they already no how to market it.

Response: This cartoon depicts the very problem I am addressing and attempting to provide some solution for. Advertisements are no longer about the products involved but it is all about how the ads can manipulate the viewers subconsciously. This is where the “evil” in advertising comes into play.
