    Talking My alcohol ad analysis!

    This is an advertisement for the beer company, Branma. In this ad, a dog appears to be waiting for its owner at a Hawaiian beach, a bra is being used as the dog’s leash. Evidently, the targeted audience is men because of the bra. When people see this ad, they will realize that a woman is somewhere around the area without her bra. Judging from the direction in which the dog is staring, the woman is probably at the chairs under the umbrella. Therefore, the other chair is for the man who is viewing the ad. Additionally, the hidden message in this ad is that if you drink Branma beer, you will be happy on a tropical island with a naked woman drinking beer with you.

    That's all true. You may have missed the significance of the slogan "Improvise". The man and woman have taken the dog for a walk. Dogs are not allowed on the beach, but they didn't bring a leash. So, they had to improvise.
    Men who drink this beer not only know how to improvise, but they are smart enough to do it to their own advantage. (Naturally, you have to assume that this was the man's idea).

    Did you ever see the Dudley Moore movie, Crazy People?

    That's the gist of all of these adds. If you did, do you remember the Ferrari ad? Same concept.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Looking at this page (File:Kranz Koelsch.jpg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) did make me thirsty, but I didn't see any women, topless or not.

    The point of this was to prove that alcohol ads have hidden messages that are false. I already handed in to my teacher.

    That's marketing. (The basic message of all beer ads is: Drinking this beer will make you happy.)
