Do Your Best.. And Be At Your Best

In this article, it talks on advertising Listerine Antiseptic. That America needs people to be strong, and by using this it will help with your health. It also says to eat good foods, dress nice, and get a lot of sleep. To care about yourself, and for your country. You need to be happy, and smile to help keep people through the time of war. The ads states to stay healthy you should use Listerine Antiseptic for oral hygiene. It talks about being able to play and have fun while you work. To go out , have fun and play. They want people to be able to stay happy, and cheerful. The ad wants people to go out, have fun and be happy because this will help them to stay healthy and be able to work. This ad is a way to help people buy war bonds. On the bottom of the article it has a small caption stating that because of war restrictions you might not always be able to get the Listerine in the size bottle you may want but, they will try to have some size available to you to buy. This shows that they want people to buy the Listerine and in their favorite size which might be a big size which might cost more money, but, they also state that they will try to have some listerine in stock but it might not be the favorite size that you might want. They do these ads to help with the war and that way they will buy products and war bonds to help out with the economy while the war is going on.

A good substantive post. You did a good job of analyzing the advertisement. The war on the homefront is being promoted through advertising. What does an advertiser, a manufactureer gain by creating this patriotic message?
