Potter starring

harry potter film star-studded poster

This recent star-studded advert for the recent Harry Potter film advert caught my eye.. If you'll pardon the appalling middle-of-the-night-webcam-style photography, you will find that there isn't much of this advert that isn't dedicated to showing how many stars the film got in various journals.
Fair enough, these self-referential "quotes" have very much become a standard element of any film, play or music album artwork, but this is surely taking it over the top?


Adverts according to gender

wellman drinks

Quite interesting...
Same drink (the Vitabiotics wellman / wellwoman drinks, as seen recently on the London Underground), two approaches to advertising.. I love how the boys' version promotes HIGH PERFORMANCE, has a range of techy-sounding additives listed on top, stresses health & vitality and is just for men, whereas the girls' one stresses pomegranate, cranberries and low calories (twice, mind you).

To say nothing of the blue/pink colour scheme.
