I was interested in doing a research on smoking because I had seen the movie “Thank You for Smoking” . Although we had I had seen in the movie for the purpose of marketing and profit making through speaking, it me wonder if people realized that how media perceives things and how people are influenced.
This image I had found does show about 1930's feel but look at the description of how smoking is being spread to the media not only now but for decades smoking is presented as a cool thing. Look at the description "coolness...delicate" these words are used for influencing people to smoke and how cool it is. This shows an older version of how the smoking industry tried making smoking look cool.
What do you think about this ad and the effect of it? Will you be influenced, if you saw this ad at the time it was released? How do you think the reaction is now?
