The automotive industry uses advertisements and hundreds of types of persuasive techniques to sell you their vehicles. In the Ford advertisement that I chose, a large red truck is driving down the road during a rain storm. The words “It’s simple. BURN LESS FUEL. Burn less cash.” These are in the upper right hand corner. The words “BURN LESS FUEL” are written in green lettering and are all in capital letters. The truck is in front of other cars on the road, and its window wipers are being used because of the rain storm its in. The Ford logo which says “Built Ford Tough” is in written in the bottom right hand corner. Next to the logo it says “This is the future of trucks” which is printed in green lettering. The use of Logos, Pathos, and Ethos makes advertisements by Ford for their brand of F-150 trucks effectiveness because the three uses target all the viewers senses at the same time and wants makes them think about and want to buy the truck.
The effects of Eighner’s attention to language in the first five paragraphs emphasizes that he is knowledgeable and confident about dumpster diving. As he states, “I live from the refuse of others. I am a scavenger” (Eighner 108). Eighner create an appeal to ethos when he displays his own experiences on the lifestyle of dumpster diving and its different aspects.
The Onion’s satirical article, “Revolutionary New Insoles Combine Five Forms Of Pseudoscience”, uses several rhetorical devices to campaign its innovative, revolutionary product: MagnaSoles shoe inserts. Using the fictional MagnaSoles as a model, the article humorously mocks the strategies used by companies to market products to attract customers. Using a sarcastic tone throughout, it gives the read a true taste of the tactics used in today’s advertising. The passage uses fabricated scientific jargon as an appeal to authority, it’s main rhetorical device. These rhetorical devices are used together with ethos and logos to give a hyperbole version of a modern advertisement.
Most Shocking Second a Day Video it is based on a little girl’s life change. This visual argument shows how in an exact year a Syrian girl’s life completely falls apart because of the war.

Eighner's intention in this essay is to condemn consumer wastefulness. Eighner clearly gives some insight of consumer wastefulness. America is a consumer based country that usually consumes and wastes products especially food. Eighner wants to show consumers that they should care about what they dispose and pay attention on what they can save that would be useful to them. Eighner's tone is this essay is very formal. He lets consumers know that just because he's a homeless person it doesn't mean that his opinion shouldn't matter but he knows about the circumstances because he was once a consumer and he gives insight of both sides. This essay makes wonder whether consumers will see what Eighner is trying to show them. Will society see how much produce is wasted? Are people going to think about what they throw out in the trash? Will the amount of wasted product decline, stay neutral, or will it
This essay is analysing the Surfrider Foundation littering ad from their blog. The ad had an image of sushi expect it had something different about it. The wrap that the rice would have been made up of was made of a plastic bag. This images has the intentions of appealing to the ethical side because it makes you think of what really can go into your food when people around the world litter. Along with the caption, “What goes in the ocean goes into you”, this ad was most definitely made to connect to the views of pathos, and logos. However, the pathos appeal is the strongest and the ethos appeal isn 't actually included with this advertisement.
Most of us have pets and consider them part of the family. As a result, we could never imagine the horror some animals are forced to endure at the hands of their caretakers. This particular ad depicts a powerful visual of a neglected dog, in poor health, chained to what seems to be a barrel. The copy in the ad, while minimal, is powerful: “Help Us Help them” and the words “Donate Today” (ASPCA). This ad is a public service announcement to bring awareness to the community concerning the horrors of animal abuse, its helpless victims, and to compel the public to make a financial donation to put an end to animal cruelty.
Everyone one loves a story about cute puppies and friendship. In Budweiser's 2014 Super Bowl commercial “Puppy Love” it tells one. The purpose of this commercial like any is to convince the audience of the message its promoting. In the advertisement it uses the three tools of ethical persuasion: logos, ethos, and pathos. These tools are utilized in the commercial for persuading the viewers of its reason, creating an image of credibility surrounding its name, as well as generating an emotional response.
A campaign demonstrating the demand for cigarettes displays how cigarette advertisers sell cigarettes by saying that “it’s okay to smoke”. With this is mind, teens and young adults may want to buy a pack of cigarettes or feel the need to try one because advertisers are saying that it is socially acceptable. This similar tactic of approval occurs when an adult buys a specific cleaning supply because the rest of the world is buying one. In the end, we end up desiring items we don’t necessarily need. Whether it’s cleaning supplies, cigarettes , or weight loss pills; it is due to advertisement. In conclusion, advertisement is propaganda with deleterious effects on our society. Often times we don’t even know we are being affected- this is because advertising is so common. A child may see an ad twice, but they will remember the tones or images and begin to want that toy or product they see. An adult may see an ad that relates to them and a desire for the product, they never wanted to begin with, is
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

With the alarming number of smokers, agencies spend billions of dollars every year on anti-smoking advertisements. Anti-smoking agencies enlighten audiences of the negative consequences of smoking and try to persuade them to stop. The visual I chose to analyze is a commercial engendered by an anti-smoking agency called Quit. The advertisement, “quit smoking commercial” shows a mother and a son walking in a busy airport terminal. Suddenly, the mother abandons the child, and after he realizes he is alone, he commences to cry. At the end, a sticker appears that says quit and gives the logo and the website of the antismoking company that engineered the ad. The commercial utilizes rhetorical appeals to draw the audience in, then persuade them to stop smoking.
Although it may not seem like it, issues concerning pollution in the ocean have a great impact on the lives of humans. The image’s creator most likely took this idea into thought when constructing the ad for the Surfrider foundation (figure 1). By making a connection between sushi and trash in a natural way that seems believable and not too bold, the image is able to appeal emotionally and logically to whoever views it. In addition, since most people are aware of of the pollution that takes place everyday on the planet, the image’s credibility is enhanced. With a unique strategy to draw the attention of a vast audience, the Surfrider Foundation uses the ad pictured above with the intent to educate the public about the effects of pollution, specifically in the ocean.
''You can tell the ideals of a nation by its advertisements'' (unknown) Statistics have shown that an average person sees between 400-600 advertisements a day. Does that mean that we think deeply and in detail about each advertisement our eyes come across? Do we give each one of those 400-600 advertisements our full attention, perhaps even a laugh or allow a feeling of excitement to spur within us? No. Why?

The advertisement above is a solid representation of the listed points above, as it is for a brand of chainsaws. A person might look upon it and laugh at how bizarre looking it is, some question and attempt to understand
