Critiquing this ad on how it attracts customer to buy their product. I will talk about what is motivating or attracting the customer.

Ambiguity

The way they compare these shoe to a fictional super character is interesting to make it look like it would have similar qualities to that of the iron man suit, which makes me think this is an ad aim toward young children and fans of marvel
