Jamieson offers a cosmopolitan (and usually funny) research of ads method, describing how tv advertisements use smooth concentration, sluggish movement, lyrical or patriotic song (Reagan used "I'm Proud to be an American") to put a candidate in a good gentle, or fast cuts, black and white, videotape, and ominous tune (for example, the subject from "Jaws") to painting the competition.
