Implications - Violent imagery often evokes physical dominance and power among its viewers, so by using it in this particular bag campaign, companies will encourage viewers to naturally associate owning one of these bags with empowerment. Corporations looking to convey a sense of strength from using their wares may consider using campaigns with appropriate violent imagery that suits their needs.
