JacobCrawford's insight:

Megna, Alexa. "The Beer Commercial Guide to Manhood." Sociology in Focus. N.p., 06 02 2012. Web. 7 Apr. 2014.

 

In the blog, "The Beer Commercial Guide to Manhood", Alexa Megna gives her take on what beer commercials actually initiate.  She shows the vivid image of how beer commercials show men as invincible studs who can encounter any situation and look like a manly man doing it. All the while picking up a hot babe and making a "loser" look bad.  She shows detailed list of how all of these aspects of drinking are far from the truth.  She believes that these commercials have a negative impact on the way men perceive other men and women.  The commercials they show are filth for the mind and we need to actually understand what these commercials actually say about our society.

Red White And Beer - Dave Barry's Greatest Hits

 

 

JacobCrawford's insight:

Barry, Dave. Red White And Beer. McGraw-Hill Reader. McGraw-Hill, 2011. 534-535. Print.

 

"Red, White, and Beer," by Dave Barry, shows you the strong effects that patriotism can have on the sales and advertising of products. This is because almost everyone wants to be patriotic and it is a really good way to make people believe that they are supporting the country by buying the product.  Barry uses a sense of comedy and common logic to show how the use of patriotism would make anyone in America buy almost any product.  With his endless references to masculinity and beer commercials you'd think he was writing for the fun of it.  However, if you find a deeper meaning, you'd see that he is trying to show the American people how the everyday encounter with propaganda can change and alter their consumer input.
