Does Fear really capture our attention? Over the years Volkswagen Jetta ads have really been geared towards the  younger crowd. If you were young, urban and hip this car was for you. Their  advertisements for it would reflect that.  http://www.volksfolks.org/gallery/commercials/jetta/? g2_GALLERYSID=89521fccab5b0959c23553c18ea5d905   Their most recent advertising campaign, however, doesn’t showcase the so  called “cool” features that normally would be played up. VW’s new controversial “Safe Happens” Campaign  http://www.vw.com/vwlife/commercial.html   They use fear to capture the audience. One of the few commercials we will not forget.  Now showing an accident is nothing new in car ads, but many of them consist of  the frontal and side impact tests that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety  conducts, usually with dummies in them that are at test facilities.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
