Abstract [en]

This article performs a reading of an advertising film promoting an enterprising spirit that circles around passion and enjoyment. Turning to psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan for theoretical support, it explores the relationship between advertising and enjoyment as it has been thought in a Lacanian vein, and proposes that at least three different dynamics are at play in the advertisement. The article centres on an understanding of the advertisement’s administration of enjoyment that pertains to what Lacan (2007) labelled the ‘the university discourse.’ While the dynamics highlighted through this discursive mode remains within the paradigm of an economy of desire, the article explores the possibility of understanding the enterprising example it sets as also, and more significantly, promoting an economy of the drive.
