Advertising frequently co-opts authentic emotional interactions and human connections. Actors are carefully chosen, as Rockwellian archtypes — quintessential representations of ‘mothers, ‘daughters,’ and the like — and placed within meticulously art directed simulations of familiar settings. Here a ‘caring mother’ advises her ‘daughter’ as they plan for the daughter’s wedding. This poignant moment might then be manipulatively conflated with a brand of baked goods, coffee, or even feminine hygiene.
