1.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of using celebrities in marketing campaigns?

Advantages

Celebrities draw attention and marketing campaigns have the inherent objective of drawing attention to the brand and the product in hand (Fernández Gómez et al., 2021). Being public figures who majority of the population can relate with, celebrities can help most of the target audience relate with a product.

Through effective segmentation, a celebrity can help a brand establish a new niche market. For instance, by signing Michael Jordan, Nike was able to make inroads into the NBA market and launching many products for millions of the NBA fans around the world.

By using a respected celebrity, a brand can be able to build credibility in the market. Celebrities with statesman like status have the potential to induce trust in the audience and improve the credibility of the product. Such include respected athletes, movie and Tv stars and artists.

Disadvantages

One disadvantage of relying on a celebrity for a marketing campaign is that the effectiveness of that campaign is tied to the image and credibility of the celebrity. In the event the celebrity is found in a scandal, the marketing campaign immediately becomes ineffective. Recently, a soccer player was found assaulting a pet in the UK and Adidas was forced to suspend its sponsorship with the athlete

Secondly, it’s not necessarily that the marketing campaign will be effective (Fernández Gómez et al., 2021). Some celebrity endorsement with significant budgets flopped forcing the brands to suspend the marketing campaigns. This leads to loss for the company.

2.
What are the potential risks?

Scandal – being public figures, the reputational risks are very high. By using a celebrity for marketing campaign, a branding is also adopting the reputational risk placed on the celebrity’s brand (Jin & Muqaddam, 2021). A celebrity found in a scandal, like they sometimes do, can ruin the marketing campaign and the investment.

Overshadowed – some celebrities are so popular that using them for marketing campaign will not help the brand get the recognition it desires rather the audience will focus on the celebrity rather than the product. The brand equity that is supposed to come out of it never materializes.

Bad publicity – Cristiano Ronaldo, the Soccer superstar, removed a coca cola bottle placed on the table at his media conference and told the reporters to drink water instead. The company’s capitalization dropped by $4 billion the following day as a result. A global icon can ruin the brand equity of a company through unconscious actions (Lunardo et al., 2015).

3.
Discuss an example of a negative celebrity endorsement and how the company responded. Do you agree with the company’s response? What else could the company have done?

LeBron James, the NBA superstar is one of the most followed athletes in the world and has got a lot of brand power. With millions of followers across twitter, Facebook and Instagram, his endorsement or lack of it has significant ramifications for any brand. Sometimes back, LeBron tweeted about a fault in his Samsung galaxy note III. This tweet alone was visible to over 40 million of his twitter followers, affecting the brands position across the world. This was at a point Samsung was keen to overtake Apple, especially in the US market. LeBron had been the biggest Samsung endorser during the 2014 summer and this tweet had a negative impact on the campaign. The company didn’t respond through their official channels but used LeBron’s platform in his own words to undo the damage by saying he had been able to restore his phone back to normalcy (Lunardo et al., 2015). I think the response of the company was perfect, given that, in his original tweet, LeBron hadn’t mentioned the name Samsung and the audience were not aware of which phone he had been talking about. Therefore, by the company choosing to let it slide, the audience were not able to turn the attention on what phone the tweet was talking about rather remained keen to focus on the superstar. That was effective damage control.

SONGS

Guapparia, 1914

List of songs inspired
by Camorra

Theatre drama with songs

Developed in 1920s-1940s

The story told in a famous song becomes a drama.

Audience identifies with main characters on stage, who represents principal feelings

Characters:
• Isso (Him): the positive hero, family man
• Essa (Her): object of desire, weak, surrendering to villain’s courtship
• O’ Malamente (villain): the “guappo”, or a coward.

Love, betrayal, honor, family links, sometimes criminal life. The end sees the fight
between Isso and O’ Malamente. The positive hero wins.

Plot: after years in jail the hero comes home and discovers that his wife betrayed him
with another (the villain). The hero fights for revenge, obtaining the community’s
respect back.

My name is Pasquale Cafiero
and I’m a brigadier in the prison, alas,
my name is Cafiero Pasquale
and I’ve been at Poggio Reale since ’53
and after the hundredth bolt
in the evening I’m a wreck
luckily in the special wing
there’s a genial man who talks with me.

All day long with four vile characters
bandits, gluttons, cuckolds and lackeys
all the hours with this scum
who spit threats and take it out on me
but at the end I sit down comfortably
I undo my buttons and I read the paper
I get advice from Don Raffae’
he explains what I think and we drink our coffee.

Oh, what great coffee
they know how make it well even in prison
with the recipe that Ciccirinella,
a cell mate,
was given by his mum.

Front page, twenty pieces of news
twenty-one injustices, and what does the State do,
it is dismayed, it is angry, it commits itself
and then it throws in the towel with great dignity,
I rack my brain and I mop my brow,
luckily there’s someone who answers me
to that very important person
I ask approval from Don Raffae’.

A man of honour who has six children
asked for a house and they give him advice
while the councillor, may God forgive him,
inside the caravan raises mink
for you a move or a voice is enough
that to this Christ they take off the cross
with all due respect, it’s now three o’clock
would you like a juice or a coffee.

Oh, what great coffee
they know how make it well even in prison
with the recipe that Ciccirinella,
a cell mate,
was given by his mum.
Oh, what great coffee
they know how make it well even in prison
with the recipe of Ciccirinella,
a cell mate,
it’s just like his mum’s.

Here there’s inflation, devaluation
and who has the wallet has it
and I don’t have anything but this salary
and two numbers if I dream about dad.
Add my daughter Innocenza
who wants a husband but she is impatient
I won’t ask you for mercy
I’ll shave you, or you can do it yourself.

You have a camel-hair overcoat
and at the mafia trial you were the most handsome
in a brown pinstripe suit
that’s what it looked like on television
for the wedding, I beg you, Your Excellency,
if you could lend it to me to make me look good,
I’ve already got the shoes and the waistcoat
would you like a Campari or a coffee.

Oh, what great coffee
they know how make it well even in prison
with the recipe that Ciccirinella,
a cell mate,
was given by his mum.

to that very important person
I ask approval from Don Raffae’.

A man of honour who has six children
asked for a house and they give him advice
while the councillor, may God forgive him,
inside the caravan raises mink
for you a move or a voice is enough
that to this Christ they take off the cross
with all due respect, it’s now three o’clock
would you like a juice or a coffee.

Oh, what great coffee
they know how make it well even in prison
with the recipe that Ciccirinella,
a cell mate,
was given by his mum.
Oh, what great coffee
they know how make it well even in prison
with the recipe of Ciccirinella,
a cell mate,
it’s just like his mum’s.

Here there’s inflation, devaluation
and who has the wallet has it
and I don’t have anything but this salary
and two numbers if I dream about dad.
Add my daughter Innocenza
who wants a husband but she is impatient
I won’t ask you for mercy
I’ll shave you, or you can do it yourself.

You have a camel-hair overcoat
and at the mafia trial you were the most handsome
in a brown pinstripe suit
that’s what it looked like on television
for the wedding, I beg you, Your Excellency,
if you could lend it to me to make me look good,
I’ve already got the shoes and the waistcoat
would you like a Campari or a coffee.

Oh, what great coffee
they know how make it well even in prison
with the recipe that Ciccirinella,
a cell mate,
was given by his mum.
Oh, what great coffee
they know how make it well even in prison
with the recipe of Ciccirinella,
a cell mate,
it’s just like his mum’s.

Here there’s no longer dignity, the luxury prisons

The line between fiction and reality is very thin
in Naples

All becomes drama

Fiction becomes reality

Reality is dramatized

The soap opera begins…
