National Geographic Ad

This advertisement was made by National Geographic in a campaign for the environment.  The ad is proving a point about trash bags.  Apparently trash bags look extremely similar to jellyfish when in water.  Many animals think they are food and try to eat them.  These bags can kill animals that try to eat them.

The advertisement proves to the viewers that plastic bags look extremely similar to jellyfish.  When I first saw this picture, I thought it was a picture of jellyfish in the ocean.  I think this advertisement does a very good job of depicting how harmful pollution can be.

I feel as if this advertisement could be misleading though, because the bags do look so much like jellyfish.  Someone could just take a glance at the picture and think it is a picture of jellyfish and think nothing of it and not read what the ad actually says.
