The first video adopts a sympathy tone in order to elicit a similar emotion from discriminatory experiences in the adult viewers. In the second video, it adopts a ridiculous tone in order to convey amusement in the adult viewers. In addition, The Onion, in their
The ad that will be analyzed was shown in the Super bowl a few years ago. The ad is targeting mainly anyone and everyone old enough to buy a car. The ad uses pathos and its brand name very well because of the music that plays throughout the commercial and the events that happen throughout the commercial.
The following essay is a rhetorical analysis of the 2018 Budweiser Super Bowl commercial. The advertisement was in response to the recent natural disasters in Florida, Texas, California, and Puerto Rico. These hurricanes and floods can pollute the water and destroy water infrastructures. The commercial shows the Cartersville brewery workers converting their beer cans into water to ship out to cities in need. The brand strategically tries appealing to the majority of the U.S. population who watches the Super Bowl. Pathos was used most effectively by showing a Budweiser employees family life and dedication to assist others through Budweiser’s water donation program. The music choice and layout of the commercial also subtly contributed to pathos. Ethos was also established by the credibility of the ones in the commercial and the humbling message of the commercial as a whole. Logos did not show in their commercial. In conclusion, the advertisement was effective using these two rhetorical appeals, and Budweiser’s image
Casablanca is one the classic Hollywood movie which is one of the most critically acclaimed Hollywood movies of all time and also very famous. Casablanca is a romance story that happens during World War II but the question is does it end there? Is Casablanca just a Romance movie?

The intriguing world of Casablanca, displays a wondrous mise-en-scene in fashion that accentuates emotions and feeling through aspects of cinematography.

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.
I have always viewed movies as mood boosters. Whenever I watch a movie, I judge how good it is according to how well I understand the story. This is why I never truly understand how critics rate movies. However, upon reading John Berger’s “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye”, I start to understand how paying attention to the different components of a film helps in understanding the essence of a story. As Berger once said, “There is no film that does not partake of dream. And the great films are dreams that reveal” (Berger 478). Reading these words instantly prompts me to reexamine the highly acclaimed musical, La La Land. The music, editing, and storyline clearly justify what Berger meant by a movie’s ability to transport us into the unknown whilst

The film Casablanca is a perfect example of Hollywood perfection because of the production and producers that were used. Cross cutting played a major role in this film because it cut between two scenes that were occurring at the same time but in different locations.

What makes an advertisement stand out the most? There are many ways that advertisements can catch the audience’s attention. To create the most effective advertisement, the author or company may use an emotional appeal in the image, use a credible source to gain the audience’s trust and create a more believable ad, or by simply creating an advertisement that uses logic and makes sense.

Two vehicles are shown in the road after a horrible car accident has occurred, there is an outline of an alcohol bottle nearby. The image implies that one of the drivers was drinking while driving, which resulted in the car accident. Someone has also lost their life due to this careless act. The advertisement shows in a horrifying way that is not smart to drink and drive – there are consequences. The ad “Absolute Stupidity” uses all three of the ethical appeals (ethos, logos, and pathos) that make an advertisement effective.
