Example text

However, it would be wildly inaccurate to claim that advertising is not (at the same time) subject to almost obsessive scrutiny across popular media. The media seem to love talking about ‘media’. ‘Media’ influences, personalities, styles and developments are high on the news and current affairs agenda, and advertising – as a nominally glamorous element of media ADVERTISING AND COMMON SENSE 35 36 ADVERTISING AND COMMON SENSE culture – is by no means excluded. One recent indicative development (which possibly counters the view that there is no public interest in the discussion of advertising) is The Advert Channel.

Talk show hosts, philosophers and tabloid journalists, in their very different registers, will turn to advertising in attempts at explaining or exploring particular concerns. Why? Because advertisements are always readily to hand, ‘evidence’ whenever we want to reflect on the ways in which, as individuals, as families, as a society and as a culture we are managing the relations between people and the things provided to us by social and economic systems. Such conversations help us to think ‘collectively’ about desire – its elaboration and its management.

Thus the analysis of advertising that circulates in academic writing can differ widely in approach and language when compared with professional industry commentary or newspaper reports. Similarly more popular reflections on advertising, for instance in comedic satire, provide information and analysis in a variety of ways, which we readily consume, and which thus feed our thinking. However none of these modes necessarily deliver coherent or uncomplicated accounts or representations of the advertising genre.
