Publicity might help us... have fun

For the last couple of weeks we have been working with modals of speculation or deduction. I thought these interesting (as well as funny) commercials will help us prove how accurate we have become when it comes to PAST MODALS.
Shall we try?

Activity 4:
General questions for all five spots:
1. Watch the commercials.
2. What product/service is being advertised?
3. What is the name of the company?
4. Which aspect of the company are the publicity creatives trying to point out?
4. How did they do this?
5. Describe which might be the target audience they are aiming at.
6. How successful do you think they were?

After watching:

Watch the video again and state three ideas each of the people involved in these sticky misunderstandings might / must or can't have thought.

1. At the hospital
2. Driving back from the concert
3. Turbulence
4. Romantic dinner
5. Hands-free cell phone

e.g. They must have thought he was trying to rob the market.

Please, comment your opinion on the publicity campaign and get your sentences ready for next week.

You can also perform a webquest for more of these spots in youtube and post them in our blog.

Hope you've liked them!
See you, Jimena
