My favorite ad is #CATmageddon by the organization, Truth. This commercial started running in the beginning of the year and used video of current internet cat memes such as, Keyboard Cat, Roomba Shark Cat and Pirate Cat along with facts and slogans to address Truth 's anti-smoking campaign, "Smoking Kills pets too". The video first presented the fact that cats are twice as likely to get cancer if their owner smokes. This demonstrates the use of rhetoric logos to convince the audience with logical reasoning. In addition, the video also uses pathos, the love and enjoyment people get from watching cat video. However, pathos is also applied to the heartbreaking reality of loss when, "smoking= no cats= no cat videos".

In the commercial, Cadillac is striving to sell a lifestyle

The purpose of this commercial is to encourage the viewer to realize the importance of a stick of Extra gum in their life. The commercial begins with a tender moment between a new father and his young daughter as he chews a piece of Extra gum and makes an origami bird out of the wrapper. The father’s act of giving an origami gum wrapper to his daughter is repeated through different stages of the daughter’s life: at her birthday, at the beach, at the ball game, at the house with a date, and an emotional moment ending with the father’s discovery that she has always kept the origami birds in a special box.

The basis of this assignment was to select an advertisement or commercial and analyze it by demonstrating my understanding of the rhetorical strategies; ethos, pathos, and logos. I choose a Super Bowl commercial put out by Budweiser depicting a feel-good message about drunk driving. The famous beer company traded in the Clydesdale horse for an adorable puppy to play the part of a dog who was left at home while his owner is out partying for the night. In this analysis, I address the intended audiences that the Budweiser commercial was catering to while addressing the subject, language, and predominate images used in this advertisement. I aimed to determine the overall purpose and stating whether or not the commercial was effective in persuading
The weapons stand out due to the solid black background, but the weapons that are made from the smoke from the cigarette. There isn’t much repetition in this ad, but one thing that is repeated is the use of weapons demonstrating the effects that smoking has on one’s health. The ad used two effects to emphasize the amount of effects smoking can cause. The alignment plays a role in this ad by putting the noose in the ad. When people look at ads, they generally look at the center first, so putting the noose around the models neck immediately grabs people’s attention. Finally, the proximity of the cigarettes and the noose and knife shows us that they are linked in some
For the majority of the advertisement, the audience is with the child’s eye level. The perspective of the child creates a relatable mood and lets the viewers step into the child’s shoes. If smokers step into their child’s shoes and see the pain, then they will want to stop smoking to end the child’s suffering. In the beginning, the advertisement illustrates a mother and a young boy around the age of five, and once the mother leaves him he begins to cry. The audience becomes sorrowful for the innocent young child; associating that child with their own. Subsequently, a voice narrates, “If this is how your child feels after losing you for a minute, just imagine if they lost you for life” (0:48 “quit”). The statement leads the audience into thinking that the little boy’s mom will never return. Moreover, the quote is assigning guilt to the smokers who have kids, because if they smoke then they will leave family
In the 2013 Budweiser commercial, the company introduced a new feature to their already well known Clydesdale ads. The idea of an everyday American man enticed audiences of all kinds to direct their attention to their tv. The rhetorical effects of the Budweiser Clydesdale advertisement administer to the viewer's’ sympathy for family bonds by showing a loving relationship between man and horse. This connects the Budweiser brand with a positive feeling in the viewer’s mind; allowing the viewer to always favor their product when shopping for a perfect beer.
For many years now, advertising has managed to have an effect of everything around us. Good or bad, the true purpose is to clearly convey their message to the targeted audience.

Almost 17% of the adult population in the United States smoke cigarettes. Smokers are more likely to develop heart disease, stroke, lung cancer or blindness. Cigarettes smoking is the leading preventable cause of death in the United States, so there are ranges of advertisements showing the harmful effects of cigarettes, and always telling people to do not smoke it, either by images, statistics or phrases. Among all advertisements that shocks, there is one in particular that it was not necessary a single word on it to do that. This ad is a colorful one that was created by the Roy Castle which is a lung cancer foundation, and was released on December 2007 on magazines and newspapers in the United Kingdom. It shows a white background with two cigarettes together forming a shotgun in the middle of it. This ad uses the three rhetorical appeals of logos, ethos and pathos through a single image.

The Audi R8 Big Game Commercial, "Commander" talks about an old man who is thinking about his time as an astronaut. He misses it and he just stares at a wall and doesn’t talk to anybody. His son comes with his Audi R8 and he gives the car keys to his dad to drive it. He becomes happy and excited and it makes him relive his time as an astronaut. The commercials purpose was to promote the Audi R8 car. Watching the commercial, the intended audience for an adult man with a son. I say that because the main character’s are an old man and his son. This commercial instills values like the past meaning reliving what you loved and also family. It’s not effective because it doesn’t use the Rhetorical Appeals like Ethos and Logos but, it does include Pathos which makes it somewhat good.
Canadian’s involvement in World War I had an extremely negative influence on the country’s agricultural output. After the draft, the number of laborers involved in the rural economy decreased drastically, causing a consequential drop in harvest production (Imperial War Museum). This affected not only the nation’s food surplus, but the entire army’s source of nutrition which could ultimately affect the chances of being successful during combat. Experiencing this hardship, an organization was created to address the issue - the Canada Food Board (Imperial War Museum). The organization’s overall goal was to persuade civilians to practice subsistence farming and to discourage any unnecessary “hoarding” (Imperial War Museum). In efforts to inform Canadians, the organization had created a series of advertisements. However, this Canada Food Board advertisement, in particular, satisfyingly appealed to the Canadian citizens by efficiently utilizing the usage of color, scenery and two rhetorical strategies – ethos and pathos.
