The game i played was the killer flu game. It was a very interesting game in how it gives a brief overview on how the flu virus is spread throughout the world. It’s also a very tough game to conquer. I worked hard on it for while to try and get the population up to 50% infected but i just couldn’t do it no matter how hard i tried. The object of the game is to get people infected around the population. What makes it so difficult is that you’re the overlord of the infection and you decide on where you want the other people to go. The trick is to use a truck into driving to other towns to get more people infected. The only problem is that people become immune to the virus relatively quick and cant spread it anymore. At first i didn’t really like the game because i hadn’t grasped the concept fast enough. Then, After about 3 or 4 games i figured out how to get more people infected at a faster rate. It’s not a game that i plan on playing ever again because it is mostly a waste of my time to even want to play it. Although this doesn’t put all the factors into how a virus spreads it give an easy understanding of how a virus can start.
The ad company of UGGs tries something bold in this ad by using brady. The ad starts out with someone running with Uggs on and the shoes keep changing as the commercial goes on. It shoes the person walking and then running to show that the uggs aren’t just for style but that they can also be used recreation-ally. Uggs uses Tom Brady really well in there add. Most people think of Tom brady as pretty boy who cares about fashion…sorta. Brady is also considered jock so most men can relate to him and what he stands for as a man. By having a jock in their commercial, Uggs draws in the attention of men who are sports fans and who wouldn’t normally buy uggs because they are known as a women’s company. Brady is an elite athlete and by having him in this commercial makes a man(or some men at least) want to buy Uggs. By focussing in on Brady’s feet for the first part of the commercial it makes the viewer want to know who’s feet they actually are. Once they show who’s feet they actually are then the viewer is either drawn in or is pulled away because the viewer either likes or dislikes Brady with extreme passion.
