I did not get to show two of my commercials, so I thought I just put them on the blog.Â
They reinforce the themes I was attempting to develop in my presentation:
USA ads: Tend to represent Asian stereotypes in a negative way. Often shown to be disadvantageous or subordinate to something else.
Asian ads: Represent stereotypes but generally obscure them so they are neither positive nor negative (unless they represent women in which case, they are generally always demeaning).
Nintendo AdÂ (Asia): The stereotypes shown are video games, martial arts/superhuman powers, and physical similarity.
Yao GarminÂ (USA): The question to keep in mind, “What does Yao say in this ad?”
