For this assignment, I decided to invent an item to help one of my favorite secret agent characters, Jason Bourne. He had problems remembering his past in all of the movies, so I created a products to blow all of those troubles away. Introducing… the recaller!
The hardest part of this assignment was inventing the product to advertise. I knew that I wanted to make a product for Jason Bourne, so what better product for him than a memory recaller!
I modeled the “recaller” after the neuralyzer in the Men in Black movies that erase your memory. I directly said Jason Bourne’s name in the commercial because he is the reason why this product was invented. The product is certainly affordable at eight low payments of $299.99. That’s nothing to successful spies who have memory loss.
I recorded the commercial to sound kind of like an infomercial where there is always a host that demonstrates how the product is used. I included a clicking sound for the recaller (which was really just a camera shutter sound). I included sounds from an audience like “oohs” and “aahs”. There is music playing in the background that sounds like it could be in a secret agent movie. I am keeping with the secret agent theme because this commercial may be in my group’s radio show, “Super Secret Opinions.” The commercial is very cheesy and silly, but it will make the audience laugh (hopefully).
