Anthony Delbrun – March 24th

The first advertisement was made by Gillette back in 2017 around the time when the #MeToo movement was already established. This ad is gender stereotypical because it showcases that all men are “toxic”. This controversial ad received tons of backlash and had cost the company that made Gillette to lose $8 million.

The second advertisement is from Burger King back in April 2019. This ad is racist because it mocks the Chinese culture by having western people using chopsticks to eat their burgers.

The third advertisement (and personally my favorite) is created by “Box Lunch” with the collaboration of Sesame Workshop from 2018. This ad shows diversity because it show cases three people from different walks of life getting along with each other. It also shows that no matter where you’re from or what you look like we can all be friends.

My name is Anthony Delbrun. I got my name from the biblical Saint of Padua Anthony. I was born on April 26th, 1999 at Kings County Hospital at approximately 5:27pm. I lived in Brooklyn, NY, USA for all my life but as for my parents they were born in Haiti. I come from a Haiti background but I barely speak the language. As a young boy growing in East Flatbush, I was a shy boy who didn't speak up for myself until the age of 7. What made me enroll in the Communication Design field is my passion for videogames and drawing. While growing I never really had a career decided for myself. The fact that there were so many jobs out there to my liking I couldn't choose. First I wanted to work at a pizzeria since I love to eat pizza. Second, I wanted to be a scientist because I wanted to make a time machine and take a blast from the past. Now we ALL know that's not possible. Lastly, I made up a fantasy career of becoming a “Bus-Driver-Crasher” meaning I'd drive a bus and crash into many objects and people. That had to be one of the dumbest ideas for a career ever! But since I was a little boy at that time I made it up, that's fine. It wasn't until my cousin from my dad's side who introduced me to videogames and drawing. From there on I experienced a passion for them, thus motivated me to become a Graphic Designer in videogames. Plus I wanted some excitement in my life. My skills are average but I’m still learning some techniques here and there so they will be useful in this field. A tagline to remember me is this: “Hard-work beats natural talent!” Also, I have an addiction to Japanese Anime! Look at my profile picture for example.
