There is a point in the ad where Sarandon puts an emphasis on the word “Fight.” This creates a sense of awareness, which makes the viewer realize that family is all about love and that you are willing to do anything, no matter what, for the ones you love.

She uses ethos here because the speech is from a graduation and she’s an expert in graduating because she experienced it herself and she has an excellent life now.
