I like this ad because it is very straightforward. You look at it and see a man sleeping in a funny position because he is in such a deep sleep. You can tell he is sick with a cold because of his red nose and he tissue next to his face. In the bottom corner of the image you see the bottle of NyQuil and the caption reads “for a better-looking tomorrow”. In the very bottom corner there is the Vicks logo and slogan. This ad is declaring that with this medicine, you will have the best sleep you possibly can while you have a cold, if you take this medicine. I like this ad because I believe it does that job and grabs the attention of the audience because of the clear, close up image of the sick man in bed. People look at it because his face looks funny because he is passed out due to the cold medicine.
