Consumerism Advert - Dr Pepper

The advert I have chosen is a fairly old one for Dr Pepper. The reason why I have chosen this is that it is very typical American with the student being in high school going to visit the nurse for a poorly finger but as the slogan for Dr Pepper is "What's the worst that could happen?", the nurse accidently puts the speaker on. After this it becomes a very tongue in cheek scene when he describes the pain in his little friend and it is perceived as something else by the rest of the student body. So not only do I feel that this advert is very typical American as a brand but it also gives a very good insite to high school and encapsulates high school life as well with the descriptions of different sets of people, such as the cheer leaders, the jocks etc.
