The main way sponsors use commercials to persuade is the use of classic rhetorical appeals, such as ethos (appeal to ethics), logos (appeal to logic), and pathos (appeal to emotion). However, GEICO is well-known to take a different approach to using rhetorical appeals. GEICO is an auto insurance company that has a very well-produced advertising campaign with a nationally identifiable mascot, the GEICO Gecko, and many viral commercials, including, but not limited to, the GEICO “Piggy” and the infamous GEICO Hump Day Camel.

However, the author deems it “too violent” or “too evil,” and we learn that no, she is not a savage (because that would be repulsive and unappealing) but can survive through anything. I absolutely abhorred this change; with killing as a skill, perhaps the author could have built more on Katsa being a morally-grey protagonist, something young-adult fiction lacks, but she instead goes on to introduce all sorts of other ways Katsa is oh-so-good and working to help others. She runs The Council, a group of people who oppose corrupt and power-hungry male leaders, another trope.

The Hudson brothers created “The Ratchet Girl Anthem,” a YouTube video sensation, which introduced and showed the world what so-called “ratchet girls” are. The rappers dressed as women in the video to make it clear that its black women who are making these “ratchet” statements about other women (Osment). Black women are not the only ones who comment on what they see, so it is not okay to just target the obvious. Famous pop star, Miley Cyrus, was called “this ratchet white girl” (Slang History) after her questionable performance at the 2013 MTV Music Video Awards.
