Some elements of this text to consider:

  • This ad looks a lot like an ad for McDonald’s french fries. Does that make it satire, parody, pastiche, irony, etc? These terms are often confused for one another – make sure you can know the differences.
  • Make sure you can clearly identify all of the elements of this ad that you might also find in a McDonald’s ad. There are more than just the obvious ones.
  • The ad uses the characteristics of a McDonald’s French fries but is trying to promote a very different type of food (in fact the exact opposite kind of food you might find at a fast food restaurant).
