How Advertising Chooses our Cars and Clothes

How Advertising Chooses our Cars and Clothes
27 Feb 2017

Isn’t it curious how automobile advertisements reflect the mentality and attitudes of the society in which we live?  Those in the advertisements are reflections of what the sellers and writers wish their customers to look like.  Ads for high-priced and expensive sedans usually show customers dressed in suits and ties as if they are on their way to a formal event, a party or company business meeting. Ads for station wagons or SUVs lean more towards casually dressed family attire, no more formal than a sweater or sport jacket, but nothing as informal as t-shirts and sandals.  Pick-up truck ads invariably show the “macho” virile personalities.  Girls in truck ads seem like ladies ready to take on the world, while still managing to look like a seductive temptress.

The guys who drive the sports cars and roadsters usually stay loyal to the image James Dean made famous in “Rebel Without A Cause” more than a half-century ago.They love fast cars and beautiful women. They wear pants and tops one can find from the favorite ASOS online distributor.Buy a pair of jeans and a shirt with a Groupon promo from ASOS and then hop into your favorite roadster or convertible to go speeding down the open road with your best friend next to you. It’s a great way to dress the part the auto industry portrays in their advertising. Especially when you can do it for less using coupons to save as much as 20% off name brand merchandise.

Are the images from those ads real?Or is the opposite true…that we do our best to live up to an image our marketers contrived to make us want to attain?That might be the subject to ask at some later time in life, when you look back fondly on a picture of yourself in your favorite ASOS attire, standing or leaning against your very first roadster.That is when you and your friends were certain you knew just what you’d do to make the world the perfect place to live in.  But for right now drive on back home, look up the ASOS website and find the Groupon you can use to get your next addition to the wardrobe you wear just for driving your favorite car.
