In this clip of advertisement the well-known rap artist, Dr. Dre, is advertising his Beats headphones in their new color collection. There are many things I think about when seeing this advertisement. It grabs the attention of the audience by the loud music being played while people get colorful paint thrown at them. The music is crystal clear which may make the audience watching the ad think that if they buy these head phones, they could always get that nice sound when listening to music. The people in the ad are shown doing cool tricks and having fun. The audience will take that as if I listened to my music from Dr. Dre's Beats headphones then I too could be having a great time or getting ready for a good work out. This type of advertisement is around us every day. Depending on if that materialistic thing is of high importance to you, you will either become interested in the product and fall under the curse of advertisers or just simply ignore it and move on with your day. This ad is appealing to me because I listen to music on a daily basis. But to be honest, this advertisement is one that I think all can enjoy. We see people getting splattered with paint in slow motion, which is something that is not normally seen typically. People tend to draw to things that they don't see every day because it is interesting. I wonder how many times they had to film the people getting splashed with paint. However many times they did, they definitely caught my attention and made me want to buy the headphones.
