Assignment 2-Final Product-Condom Ad/Dr. Strangelove Ad

5 Apr

So, our final product is based tightly on the images which inspired us. Using an ‘aged’ image we incorporated some humor and captured one of the main characters of the movie. Our tagline was WMD, Weapons of Mass Desire…playing of the WMD theme of the movie. This allowed for some more humor, and conveying a sexual message. The condom on the cigar is a play on the stoic image and conveyed a little more humor.The quote at the bottom is directly from the film and fit in nicely with our ideas.¬† we feel we accomplished our goal.
