Perhaps the most heartbreaking is the young daughter’s face, as she is unaware of what is about to happen. Not only does the ad appeal to pathos, but it also provides a sense of logos. The ad presents a simple if/then statement: if someone is distracted while driving, then an accident is likely to occur. It is clear that the entire accident could have been prevented, had the driver’s eyes been focused on the road.
What is the advertisement’s argument? It is to not drink and drive, as drinking and driving will most likely kill you and your pet at home will be waiting for you to get home as they are unaware of your death and will not know why Who is the intended audience? People who drink and also have the license to drive. Identify two (2) examples of the rhetorical appeals used in the advertisement.
I think the second part of the commercial is the most effective in making sure when those are drinking they make the responsible decision that way they can make it home safely. The audience can relate to this because when the screen goes black especially the first time it really makes the audience ponder what it would be like if their loved ones never made it home, and also how it would make their loved ones feel if they didn’t make it back home after a night of drinking. Therefore, making the audience wanting to be responsible after a night of drinking that way they are able to see their family and friends again. Also, in the commercial when the man comes back home stating that he didn’t think it was a good idea to drive home after he was drinking so he stayed the night at Dave’s advising the audience to make a plan to get home safely and be responsible in hopes that the message will get out there to decrease the amount of accidents caused by drunk
For example, it helps to develop chronic illnesses which may result in death and also affects the way how individuals interact with each other in society. I believe that alcohol should be prohibited by the legal authorities considering its fatal and negative effects of car accidents, family conflicts, change in academic behavior and health problems. “Do not drink and drive” is a popular phrase enforce by the legal authorities through songs, billboards and magazines or newspaper articles. On a daily basis, people of all ages die or end up in critical medical cases due to motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol- impaired driver. I argue that drivers should not consume alcohol as it contains harmful substances such as ethanol which affects our senses and visibility thus causing car accidents, illnesses and
In this century, people don't care to wonder how the penalties for drunk driving came about. Before 1980, the public believed drunk driving fatalities could be excused; that it wasn't considered murder. More than twenty-one thousand people died each year during drunk driving crashes due to the public's view and United States law. That changed once awareness raised about this issue, and the public’s attitude towards drinking changed. Now, in the United States, that number cut in half thanks to Candy Lightner.
According to the U.S. Transportation Department in 2006, there are 13,470 fatalities in crashes involving at least one driver who had a .08 or above BAC. To many, alcohol drinking is an activity done for social interaction and relaxation. Drinking alcohol is not dangerous but it is when an individual puts themselves behind the wheel. Alcohol at even an amount
“Even though 20% of Americans 16 and older say that, in the past year they have gotten behind the wheel within two hours of drinking alcohol, but society fails to realize that this will continue to be a major issue and push the statistics of fatalities unless something is done about it.” (Blue) Throughout most of the world, drinking and driving has become an over-looked issue that needs to be handled properly. Drunk driving will continue to be a huge issue over this general population today, if something doesn’t take place in order to lower the statistics. “The majority of drinking and driving deaths are due to drivers with a blood alcohol concentration, or BAC, of at least .10 BAC (blood alcohol concentration), the most commonly used definition
There is an old saying in China “Nobody runs the business at a loss, but everybody scrambles to take the business of murder”. Although this saying is hyperbolic, it reflects the fact that a bunch of people risks their lives regardless of the consequence. Drinking-driving, is one of the phenomenon that causes serious consequence, but attracts millions of people to pay the price of life for it. Therefore, it worths our exploration to see why people still choose to go on undeterred by the dangers ahead. With the rapid development of modern society, people are becoming more and more fickle.
Carly Heymann 11Q Life Orientation: Alcohol Assignment Task 1: Advert: 1. In both adverts alcohol is indirectly portrayed by showing us, the viewers the effects it can have on our bodies after a night of binge drinking and therefore convincing the viewers to abstain from returning home in the condition that is portrayed in the advert.
Whether the viewer has been a victim to raised rates already or someone who may be looking for insurance, the commercial offers a logical point that pushes us to act on what we have felt throughout the commercial. Each viewer may respond to the commercial in a different way by looking up what accident forgiveness is, by calling a local Allstate, or by reviewing their own insurance policy over again to see if they will ever become a victim to raised rates. The logical argument behind the commercial doesn’t force viewers to feel that they need to purchase Allstate insurance, but it does make viewers think about what would happen if they were put in that situation. The idea is what pushes viewers from just feeling pity for the actor, or just paying attention to the catchy theme to acting on something that could prevent a situation like this from happening to
Despite many teens believing that participating in underage drinking is not harmful, or at least not as harmful as participating in other social or recreational drug use, underage drinking has far-reaching and potentially long-term harmful effects. Underage consumption of alcohol increases the risk of many progressive physical and psychological disease conditions, including poor academic performance, higher incidence of crime, and physical disorders including chronic liver and kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, and impaired cognitive function. Although the short-term physical effects of alcohol abuse are well known, underage drinking dramatically increases the risk of long-term negative psychological, sociological, physiological, and behavioural
Task 1 : Advert: 1. Alcohol is indirectly portrayed in each advert as something that is negative and has a degrading effect on one's life. In both adverts, we see the individuals perform actions that make them look ragged and uncouth, such as the boy smearing food on himself and the girl smudging her makeup, and we can thus deduce that this is the negative, degrading effect of alcohol. 2. It may cause the viewer to question their binge drinking.
The Progression of Prosthetics “Each year in the United States, an estimated 158,000 persons undergo amputation, with the overall number of amputations being performed increasing,” (Raichle et al., 2008, 961-972), as well as the statistic that “One in every 2,000
