Upon the first Sunday of February each year, the two remaining football teams in the NFL come together to compete and continue a national holiday that dates back to 1967. In that inaugural year, it cost approximately $40,000 to occupy a slot of time on the television screens of 50 million people around the country. 51 years later, in 2018, that price has been heightened to between 5 and 5.5 million dollars, now attracting nearly 100 million viewers each year. (CNN) Between the 60 minutes of broadcasted game time, various companies attempt to put their millions to use and to hopefully create a funny, interesting, and/or informative commercial.

Turow includes surveys that he has taken over the years in which people have said that the information advertising companies collect makes them feel “creeped out” (233). By including these statistics, Turow references a large group of people and incorporates the reader into it. He says that while some groups have tried to limit the power of data mining companies, the main problem is that the everyday consumer does not know the extent or outcome of the data provided. Turow makes the reader feel like they are not alone by grouping them with a large amount of consumers who also feel unsettled by this breach of privacy.
In a 2010 Rosetta Stone commercial, the company successfully utilized pathos, ethos and logos in the selling of their product. Some background information about Rosetta Stone is that it is a company whose name comes from the Rosetta Stone found in Egypt. The stone was used to help decipher hieroglyphs and their goal is to sell their software to help with language acquisition. After viewing this infomercial, I came to realize that their intended audience were people who wanted to learn a different language but hadn?t done so. In this paper, I will explain how each of these rhetorical devices were used and to what affect it held.
Technology has challenged the rules of privacy, and people are questioning if privacy is a necessity anymore. Technology, specifically apple products such as iPhones, is a need in many people’s lives, and they cannot imagine not being able to check their phones for the weather or to ask Siri to find the closest restaurant. Unfortunately, people do not realize companies use technology for targeted advertising, which is an invasion of privacy. An invasion of privacy is when people’s private information is used to influence them and is given to other people or companies unknowingly. Targeted advertising is further explained in the article “Behavioral Ads Offer a Windfall for Marketers, Publishers” that targeted ads “involve tracking consumers’ web surfing and shopping habits so marketers can
Over the past twenty years, the amount at which advertisers are advertising to children is astonishing. Advertising directed towards children has estimated at over 15 million annually that’s almost three times more than what it was 26 years ago! Toy companies, fast food places, and retail stores are very eager to target children-maybe even a little too eager. Advertisers are consciously targeting children. Most advertisers are targeting children because they're easier to get hooked on a product. Advertisers target children by using cartoon characters to promote their product which will make the child want the product. Advertisers also target children by having famous sports stars or actors to promote their products. Advertisers will pay millions just to get kids hooked on their products. Advertisers are exposing children to dangerous amounts of advertisements every day and their finding new ways to get past parents. Advertising towards children has gotten so bad that the government is having to step in and new guidelines are being made to on how advertisers advertise to towards children.
Advertising is the best way to get a message across to a certain audience. It serves as a mean of communication of a product or service. It is broadcasted through every media around the world in order to make any product known. The brand Coca Cola is one of the most known companies in the world; their main product is a type of beverage. Throughout the years, this company has been making history with their worldwide advertisements. These advertisements are created in a way that capture’s the audience’s attention and makes them want to purchase the product. In specific, the ad “It’s Beautiful” and “Taste the Feeling of Summer with Coca Cola” are only two of multiple others that sells their product successfully with the use of the rhetorical appeals:
Being a person of sports and fitness, the brand ‘Gatorade’ is quite familiar. Gatorade isn't just any sports drink but a sports drink that is known for its exquisite taste and excellent job at replacing ones electrolytes. Gatorade is a beverage most enjoy but for athletes it is practically a blessing. The world known drink motivates and pushes its athletes to go above and beyond and to be sure to hydrate as well. In one of the many Gatorade commercials out there, I was able to see as to how Gatorade used ethos, pathos and logos to both amuse and convince its audience. In the ad I watched, a customer wants to simply purchase a bottle of gatorade but the gas station clerk just won't allow it. After a few moments of the the clerk telling the customer no and giving him factual reasoning, Peyton Manning shows up. The use of ethos, pathos and logos in the ad seems to be an exceptional way of selling the product to the public.
Advertising is a form of propaganda that plays a huge role in society and is readily apparent to anyone who watches television, listens to the radio, reads newspapers, uses the internet, or looks at a billboard on the streets and buses. The effects of advertising begin the moment a child asks for a new toy seen on TV or a middle aged man decides he needs that new car. It is negatively impacting our society. To begin, the companies which make advertisements know who to aim their ads at and how to emotionally connect their product with a viewer. For example, “Studies conducted for Seventeen magazine have shown that 29 percent of adult women still buy the brand of coffee they preferred as a teenager, and 41 percent buy the same brand of mascara” (Source
product that was being advertised, to than actually being interested in purchasing that product? Well that was their goal, advertisers have mastered the market industry by being aware of the fact that us humans are very concerned with our image. Advertisers know that we have a greater chance of buying a product if we can picture ourselves how we would like to be portrayed of course with the help of their product. In ads, companies want to provide an image that can be relatable to the viewers and what would want to appeal to them. For example In Old Spice’s commercial “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” they create an image that men who use their body wash are manly, rich, and attractive, which I think most men would like to be represented as. Another example is in the Lux body wash commercial they create an image making it seem like every women using their body wash are happy, sexy, and stylish. To achieve these thoughts created by the audience advertisers use many different techniques
