Right on Target: Archery
Ads Worth Seeing Right on Target: Archery Ads Worth Seeing

Archery. The word entices you to stare down a target, nock your arrow and let it fly. But does it make you want to try a new deodorant? Depending on what you’re drawing and how hard you’re working, it just might.

Archery is prominent in advertising. Commercials, print ads, window displays – we see archery everywhere. The sport also boasts great growth, so it makes sense that even deodorant companies use archery to promote their products. It’s a win-win because archery and the advertisers get exposure. And if the ads are effective, everyone gets new customers.

From food and drink to fashion and fragrance, these archery advertisements make you say, “Let me try it!”


Being a camp counselor is tough work. Especially when it involves bows and arrows. This Secret deodorant commercial advertises a product that helps archers “outlast” their long day at the range.


And if your deodorant doesn’t last, top it with this Versace cologne, appropriately pronounced “arrows.”
