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.
I was assigned the rhetorical appeal, logos. Logos is based off of reasoning, facts, using statisics and logic to persuade the reader. For my example I found an anti-smoking adverstiment. The advermisensts goal is to persuade viewers to not start smoking. I believe this is an example of logos because the adversiments lists facts that smoking will kill you. The facts state that smoking will cause a raise in your blood pressure, wrinkles in your skin, may cause heart attacks and may cause cancer. The adverstiment includes true and logical facts that are hard to agrue with. The logos rhetroical appeal is based of using reasoning to convince a reader or viewer. The ad also does this by displaying a picture of a gun being loaded with cigarettes,
When viewing advertisements, commercials, and marketing techniques in the sense of a rhetorical perspective, rhetorical strategies such as logos, pathos, and ethos heavily influence the way society decides what products they want to purchase. By using these strategies, the advertisement portrayal based on statistics, factual evidence, and emotional involvement give a sense of need and want for that product. Advertisements also make use of social norms to display various expectations among gender roles along with providing differentiation among tasks that are deemed with femininity or masculinity. Therefore, it is of the advertisers and marketing team of that product that initially have the ideas that influence
Ethos, Pathos, and Logos are terms coined by Aristotle and are referred to as the three artistic proofs. The use of Ethos is the art of convincing potential customers that the advertisement is credible. Pathos, on the other hand, is the art of convincing potential customers by appealing to their emotions. Last but not least, Logos is the art of convincing potential customers by the use of logic or reason. The two popular gum brands, 5 Gum and Orbit, are well known for their often funny and entertaining ads that capture viewers attention. The effective use of Ethos, Pathos, and Logos is substantial in creating an effective advertisement.
The Elaboration Likelihood Model was established in 1980s by John Cacioppo and Richard E. Petty. ELM is one of the most influential and important theory of persuasion. This approach explains how attitudes are shaped, changed when the process of persuasion is taking place, i.e. what level of elaboration arises during receiving the persuasive message by the recipient.
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. The advertisement that has been chosen, is focused on the popular issue of drinking and driving. “Absolute Stupidity” is written in bold words across the bottom of the image, mocking the alcoholic beverage Absolut Vodka. 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.
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.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a total of 15.1% of United States’ adults smoke. The Action on Smoking and Healthy Organizations seeks to communicate the risks associated with smoking and support greater restrictions on cigarette and tobacco sales. Therefore, the anti-tobacco organization in their print advertisement addresses the number of smokers in the United States. ASH’s purpose is to convey that children readily mimic the habits of their parents and siblings – even the bad practices. In attempts to promote reform among parents and siblings who smoke, ASH, uses multiple rhetorical elements. While the ASH print ad successfully employs the use of pathos to evoke a sense of guilt amongst its audience and asserts
The advertisement does an outstanding job of demonstrating the severe and extreme consequences of smoking. The advertisement accurately captures the different forms in which smoking alters your life and how it can lead to immense health risks. If a smoker were to view the CDC advertisement video they would reconsider smoking due to all the negative health risks. They may even try to find a way to escape smoking or seek help to quit. If nonsmokers view this video it will educate them further on the true effects smoking has on your life, and also it will make them think twice before them
The ad’s color scheme is mainly blue, but some of the letters are red, white, and a darker blue. Utilizing these colors brings the American flag to mind, because people associate red, white, and blue with the flag, especially during the 4th of July. Furthermore, the letter “O” is replaced by the Pepsi symbol. Then, at the bottom of the page, a glass of Pepsi is included. The Coca-Cola ad is also a seasonal advertisement. On the center of the ad, a glass of Coke is included and the glass is surrounded by red ribbon and a small piece of holly. Below the glass a small paragraph talks about the history of Coke during the holiday season. Then, at the bottom of the page, are the words, “It’s the real thing. Coke.” The color scheme of the Coke ad is mainly white, which could represent the holiday season that was taking place when this ad was created. By analyzing the advertisements use of the ethical, emotional, and logical appeal to consumers, a comparison between the Pepsi and Coca-Cola advertisements can be
Advertisement two: Calvin Klein is a dark-full colour advert, for Calvin Klein Jeans advertisement (Figure II). Nudity combined with the body position and body language make this a highly sexual ad and a solid reason for its inclusion in the study. The Calvin Klein advertisement features a woman with a nude torso positioned on top of man with a nude torso. The visual elements presented in the second ad by Calvin Klein create visual texture; the ocean/rocks surrounding the human figures creates a frame focusing the eye on the bodies in the centre. The woman’s fixated body pulling away from the male model attracts the viewer down her arm, to her waist pointed at the logo at the bottom of the page (right-hand-side). The females almost exposed breast in the centre of the ad is positioned under the man’s arm. This juxtaposition

Wispy, white tails of smoke drift around the front seat of the car towards the children sitting in the back. The smoke does not amuse the third grader; he smells, sees, and breathes in the smoke every day from his mother’s cigarette. The smoke reaches the newborn infant strapped in her car seat, unable to escape the killer substance hanging in the air. Her lungs slowly adjust to her mother’s killer habits, which then becomes the baby’s killer habit without even lifting the cigarette to her delicate mouth. This scenario occurs in many families and cars around the country, and while many smokers realize the potential, deadly effects on their own bodies, they do not realize the deadly effects on their passengers. Therefore, legislation should ban smoking in cars carrying children under the age of eighteen.
