Disappearance Of The Shark

Powerful Essays
Anywhere a person looks, he or she will be confronted with hundreds of forms of advertisement. Some may be silly with a famous celebrity or super creative and eye-catching, but then there are those ones that are serious and really make people think. They exist on billboards, posters, fliers, and other print media which are visible almost everywhere. I came across an advertisement that considered a problem in which sharks face regarding humanity killing off their population. After a thorough analysis, the simplistic approach of the advertisement makes it highly effective in informing its viewers that humans have an impact on the ecosystem around them without ever explicitly saying it. Taking a first glimpse at the chosen advertisement, it is clear that there are two panels, one with a shark fin in the ocean, and one without the shark fin.

    Initial Thread In lesson 3, the presenter discussed Neil Postman's article, "The Disappearance of Childhood". I agree that electronic media, such as television fails to show children in their place. Children are exhibiting various behaviors that do not represent God and what he wants for his people.
