In Tag Heuer’s “Don’t Crack Under Pressure” campaign Tag Heuer uses famous athletes and celebrities with the goal of establishing that successful and powerful people wear Tag Heuer watches. Tag Heuer use this technique to effectively establish a sense of both power and masculinity emanating from those who purchase the watches made by Tag Heuer. Campaigns like Tag Heuer’s here target themselves towards a demographic comprised primarily of middle aged men using images of masculinity to make the target demographic feel as if they are renewing their own masculinity by purchasing the product, in this case the Tag Heuer watch.

The use of the media in many ways can bring a candidate from the top to the bottom or from the bottom to the top depending on the way the media spins things.
