The camera shot zooms out of the women and goes back to a birds’ view of the pool. This frame gets blurred and acts as a background for a tub of Silk frozen yogurt which fades in.

SFX and music are the same. Woman 2 speaks.

Spoken words:

W2: Silk frozen yogurt, a delicious treat that is perfect for you and your body.


The actresses are specifically chosen to represent women of the target audience for the product. They are slim and pretty, which implies that they care about their bodies and therefore health. Important part of this advert plays the male character as well. It could be suggested that James Dornan should be endorsed. As previously discussed, he is the main character in the 50 shades of Grey movie which is to be released. It can be suggested that as the target audiences for Silk and the movie are virtually the same, the potential consumers of Silk are likely to be actually attracted to the actor, which will make the advert more believable.
