    The initiative of McDonald is great. Also, it is a great marketing tool. Many people view McDonald fast food to be unhealthy, so adding an educational factor while selling fast food might seem attractive to many customers. Children love McDonalds, giving away books with the meal might encourage the children to learn to read. Also, it will help many children to have access to books.

    Among these advertisements, Volkswagen’s “The Force” is my favorite one. There is no doubt that children can easily attract people’s attention. While I was watching it, I felt the boy is so cute which causes the advertisement deeply embedded in my mind. It is a pretty smart approach for company to use children in the advertisements.

    Among all these ads the Volkswagen, “The Force.” is my favorite. This is because the ad does not only show the innovation in the technology but also the way the ad is made. It is a great attention grabbing ad
