Questions for Obama Campaign Ad

1. What technology is used to create this? This picture was taken by a digital camera and the colours displayed were filtered/photo shopped to add a sense of wisdom and power to his face.
2. What interpretations can be made from this reality? It can be deduced that the red colour shown on Obama’s face portrays a sense of power and direction in the American people. The blue on the other side of his face shows the fact that although he is powerful; he is also peaceful and calm. Finally, the white on the left side of his face completes the American flag colours showing a sense of American Pride.
3. What target audience/market is this ad directed at? This ad is directed at perspective voters in the upcoming Presidential Election of the United States of America.
4. What techniques are used to sell this product? This campaign ad is much like one that was used by F.D.R. during his election in the 1930’s. F.D.R. helped the American economy out of the depression that they were in the midst of and Obama hopes to recreate this economic success. Obama is mirroring F.D.R.’s policies during this time of economic despair.
5. Why are these values connected to the audience? These values connect to the American people because of the Red/White/Blue colours that Obama has used to cover his face. The sense of pride that an American will feel when seeing this ad could possibly persuade them to vote for Obama.
6. What is the end-goal of their political message? The end-goal of this ad campaign was to win the American presidential election of 2008.
7. Why was this form chosen to present the content? This form was chosen so that it could be easily displayed in a possible downtown setting where people who could vote would be able to see it on a regular basis.
8. How is the medium related to current social communication methods? This ad could have been posted around highly concentrated areas of potential voters. This ad also appeared on internet sidebar ads to get to people who can vote.
