Indicating that this commercial best fit for younger audiences. Style: Humor • Miss Piggy is the main character in this commercial. She is imitating Jessica Simpson’s previous ad for Pizza Hut. • The 3 boys at the restaurant table deflects the pizza that was tossed over by Miss Piggy. In a previous commercial with Jessica Simpson, she tossed the pizza bites right into their mouths. • Miss Piggy is part of the very popular Muppet show and is recognizable by people of all ages. Conclusion: This is a youthful commercial with a blend of upbeat music and a celebrity most children can recognize. Basic Appeals:  Basic Appeals Need for sex: This is a pre-teen commercial which features Miss Piggy, but it also pararells the Jessica Simpson commercial. Children will compare the two commercials and also see the sex appeal of Jessica Simpson in the other ad. Hence, the pre-teens are getting a taste of what advertisers have in store for them in the future. Need for Aesthetic sensation: The kids are in a dimly lit pizza parlor, and Miss Piggy’s bright red dress is the main focus of the ad. The sound of little pizza bites being shot from across the room is impossible in real life, but in this commercial it greatly appeals to children’s imaginations. Style: Humor • Miss Piggy is the main character in this commercial. She is imitating Jessica Simpson’s previous ad for Pizza Hut. • The 3 boys at the restaurant table deflects the pizza that was tossed over by Miss Piggy. In a previous commercial with Jessica Simpson, she tossed the pizza bites right into their mouths. Style: Use of Celebrity • Miss Piggy is part of the very popular Muppet show and is recognizable by people of all ages. The Adolescent / Teen Target:  The Adolescent / Teen Target Teen-focused fast food advertising emphasizes characteristics that youth aspire to: Being popular Being attractive/sexy Being cool Standing out in a crowd Attracting attention The ads target these and other qualities important to adolescents Advertising Tactics Targeting the Adolescent / Teen Market::  Advertising Tactics Targeting the Adolescent / Teen Market: Addressing the need for affiliation Teen-focused ads frequently portray groups of friends, sporting teams, and other group activities Capitalizing on the popularity of current fads, styles and trends Many ads are based on popular trends in music, fashion, and language; celebrities are often used, and are appearing more frequently Appealing to the need for sex The use of sexual themes in fast food ads aimed at the adolescent market is on the increase Example: Carl’s Jr “Spicy Paris”:  Example: Carl’s Jr “Spicy Paris” Slide16:  Ad description: The ad features heiress Paris Hilton in a chic black bathing suit sudsing up a Bentley. She breaks from her hard work to take a bite of a perfect Carl’s Jr. burger. Playing on a catch phrase coined by the heiress, the commercial ends with the tag line “That’s Hot”. Target audience: Shown during Desperate Housewives, The O.C. and The Apprentice. Targeting the young, powerful & affluent. Ad subtext: Paris is hot. Spicy BBQ is hot. If you like Paris, you’ll like our sandwich. Fowles “Basic Appeals” :  Fowles “Basic Appeals” Basic appeals employed: Need for attention: Utilizes the celebrity endorsement phenomenon. Associates product with celebrity infamous for attracting attention. Need for Sex: Employs sex appeal in dress and body movements. Need for affiliation: Invites desire to affiliate with her intimately, affiliate with her wealth, and thus affiliate with her hunger. Ads that Target Adults:  Ads that Target Adults Fast food advertisers face a tougher target in the adult market, but adjust their appeals accordingly Assuming a more informed consumer, ads must actively counter negative press related to the brand and industry Advertisers must break through a greater resistance or insensitivity to advertising in general Ads must take into account the sense of responsibility inherent to parenting and family life Advertising Tactics Targeting the Adult Market::  Advertising Tactics Targeting the Adult Market: Addressing the need to feel safe In response to criticism, fast food ads increasingly attempt to portray their products as a healthy choice Appealing to the need to escape By portraying subjects in their 30s displaying youthful qualities, fast food ads target the desire to feel young Targeting the need to nurture Adult-focused fast food ads frequently employ the use of the “happy family” scenario, implying that their brand and products will contribute to a healthy, happy relationship between children and their parents Example: McDonalds “Crowd Surfing Teacher”:  Example: McDonalds “Crowd Surfing Teacher” Slide21:  Ad description: The commercial begins with high school youths eating at McDonald’s while recounting the excitement of an earlier music concert. Flashback clips focus on the orange shoes of a crowd surfing fan. The youths encounter their teacher in the restaurant and ask him what he’s up to; he replies “grading papers” and walks past. The camera focuses on his feet; he’s wearing the same orange shoes as the crowd surfer, and he raises his fist in a popular “rock-and-roll” hand sign as he exits. Target audience: Pre-middle-aged adults (airs frequently during VH1 “I Love the –insert decade-” nostalgia shows) Ad subtext: Stay youthful. Fast food is often associated with teenagers. You will still be “cool” if you eat at McDonald’s like teenagers do. Basic Appeals :  Basic Appeals Need for affiliation: The ad implies that by eating at McDonald’s (and crowd surfing at the concert), the teacher has gained respect and credibility from his teenage students Need for attention: From the crowd surfing, to the orange shoes, to the “rock-and-roll” hand sign, this ad implies that those who seek attention are rewarded with admiration Need to escape: The ad invites the target viewer to escape the trappings of responsible adult life and regain a youthful freedom enjoyed by the young and young-at-heart, who choose McDonald’s as a favored brand Changing Tactics: Reactionary Ads and Products:  Changing Tactics: Reactionary Ads and Products In recent years a variety of popular influences have led to negative publicity for fast food companies and their products Recent Influences on Consumer Attitudes toward Fast Food::  Recent Influences on Consumer Attitudes toward Fast Food: Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal (Book by Eric Schlosser, 2001) Presents a scathing indictment of the fast food industry in the United States. Supersize Me: (Film, Dir. Morgan Spurlock, 2004) Documents the physical and psychological effects of eating only McDonald's fast food, three times a day, every day, for thirty days. Bad publicity regarding fast food’s contribution to child and adult obesity epidemic Public reports have declared child and adult obesity a “national epidemic” and have stressed fast food’s role in the problem The fast food industry has responded with::  The fast food industry has responded with: Health and fitness focused ads Ads are increasingly depicting fast food as part of an active, healthy lifestyle. Salads and other “healthier” menu choices These items are deceptive: McDonald’s popular “Crispy Chicken Bacon Ranch Salad” w/dressing contains 510 calories (55% from 31g fat), 1670mg of sodium, and has meat and toppings fried in dangerous hydrogenated oils. Shift of focus from product to brand Ads increasingly avoid showing subjects actually eating the products, and in many cases, do not even show the products themselves, but instead focus on reinforcing brand image and awareness. Slide26:  In a fiercely competitive arena where brand recognition and loyalty rules, advertising is the life’s blood of the fast food industry. Tenaciously pursuing cradle-to-grave brand loyalty, fast food companies have not only succeeded in making a big industry truly massive, but they have also drawn fire from critics of their tactics, and unwanted attention from public health concerns. Commanding massive promotional budgets, and always adapting to public sentiments and moods, fast food advertising will continue to be a force to be reckoned with.
