Fabulous Vintage Ad For Cadillac, 1960s
Advertisements are everywhere and there is no way that you can escape from them. They all have their target audience who they have specially designed the ad for. In 1960’s, ads were getting popular to be on TV as well as newspapers. Ads in this decade were influenced by the cultural and social changes of the time. Advertising reflects a trend toward innovation, sophistication and growing youth culture both male and female. At this time there was abundance of mass-produced goods for eager consumers who enjoyed more freedom and had more income than previous generation. One of the famous ads of 1960 is called the Fabulous Ad for Cadillac. To analyze this ad I used the rhetorical order of ethos, pathos and logos. At this ad you will see a red sport Cadillac parked in a fancy looking place and a couple very formal walking toward the car. Target of this ad is both male and female in their late twenties or mid thirties. This ad catches the male side by getting their attention and interest drawn to the red sport Cadillac. They also get the female attention by the logo made of diamonds and the lady who is wearing a pink gown next to a guy who is wearing tuxedos. Few things that made this ad stands for me were the color of the ad, the sophistication of the ad and the subject of the ad. The beautiful bright red and pink used in this ad just gets the audience’s attention in no time. The red used for the car is mostly a famous color that young males like and the pink used for the ceiling, diamonds and the dress is a favorite color for girls. Overall the entire ad looks elegant; the tuxedo and the gown, the diamonds on top of the ad, the beautiful sport Cadillac all are probably a dream come true. Finally when it comes to the subject of the ad, it looks so real. The place where the couple is walking just looks beautiful with trees around it. Where car is parked looks like to be in front of a fancy hotel that you wish

    only criteria that defines vintage fashion. “Vintage implies that it has archival value,” said Cameron Silver, owner of Decades, the extremely popular Los Angeles vintage store. Strictly speaking, vintage fashion would ideally be clothing that is atleast 25 to 30 years old, but this is highly debatable now. Some say that vintage fashion spanned from the 20s to 50s, and all that came in after that is “retro clothing”, whereas others argue that the 80s is as much vintage as the 20s are, and it is more…
