Hack #3


Today in class, we talked about how the culture in America changed because of the atom bomb. People were creating ads and products based around the bomb in an attempt to cope with their fear and anxiety. Similarly, I found an ad that uses 9/11 as a way to reach the American people. However, instead of coping with the fear surrounding the event, this ad uses the fear and plays on it in an attempt to get people to stop smoking. This is similar to the atom bomb ads though in the way that it distracts the American people from the event itself.
