It has been said that it only takes one person, with one clear message, to change the world. In times of war, great world leaders have put this statement to the test, which each word spoken calling for an act of war or an act of peace. In Thomas Paine’s The Crisis No. 1, Paine is addressing the impending Revolutionary War, and the impending battle against General Howe. Similarly, in Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation, the President asks the American people to stand with him against the Japanese and join World War II. Both speeches call out to the American people to fight and protect their nation using facts and hard truths to persuade, while both Paine and Roosevelt use their own levels of personal connection and feelings
In late summer of 1991, Gatorade ran an advertisement featuring a then 29 year old future Hall of Fame NBA player, Michael Jordan. It just aired right after he just won his first of six total NBA Championships. This ad was going to feature the first official athlete to be in a Gatorade ad. The ad’s focus was to young adults who are dreaming big, and want to become this great athlete along with being a great person. That is what Gatorade wanted to convey in this ad. They wanted to show that Michael Jordan is that dream that every kid wants to be. With this in mind, Gatorade was able to create the “Be Like Mike” campaign. The “Be Like Mike” ad portrays Michael Jordan being an amazing athlete and person, while drinking Gatorade. The sports drink

The assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. devastated a large majority of people around the world. His works of nonviolent acts against racism motivated many, including civil rights activist Cesar Chavez, to solve matters without resorting to inhumane behaviors. Inspired by Dr. King Jr.’s work, Chavez and his union of labor workers devoted themselves to helping those in need through peaceful protests. Similar methods are proven to be successful; Mahatma Gandhi, for instance, gained a great deal of supporters because of his pacifism and tranquil methods of boycotting against British domination. Despite brutal and savage methods of persuasion slowly gaining support, Chavez proves that nonviolent actions are superior; he does so by using ethos in order to uphold moral standards, logos (in reference to the past), and pathos to appeal to the emotions of his audience.
Nike is one of the most respected brands out there. "Nike is so widespread across so many apparel and footwear categories, that right now I think their biggest competition is themselves," said by Ralph Parks who is the president of the 450-store Footaction chain. He also added that, "The brand is becoming bigger than life itself." Nike has been around for over 50 years, and according the Nike website, they got their name from the Greek goddess of victory, and it is pronounced "ny'-kee." Nike, like many other companies, uses forms of elements like ethos, pathos and logos to manipulate viewers in there advertisements and commercials. Pathos is used to manipulate the viewers emotionally and uses words of emotion. Ethos, unlike pathos, is a more
Everyone one loves a story about cute puppies and friendship. In Budweiser's 2014 Super Bowl commercial “Puppy Love” it tells one. The purpose of this commercial like any is to convince the audience of the message its promoting. In the advertisement it uses the three tools of ethical persuasion: logos, ethos, and pathos. These tools are utilized in the commercial for persuading the viewers of its reason, creating an image of credibility surrounding its name, as well as generating an emotional response.
It was August 29, 2005. A massive hurricane hit the gulf coast of the United States. There were 1,836 people killed. At least 70,000 people were rescued. The people of Louisiana needed hope that their lives would be rebuilt, so as governor, Kathleen Blanco gave an inspirational speech called the “Address to a Joint Session of the Louisiana State Legislature. This speech was presented to the Legislation to demand that New Orleans would be rebuilt and to prove that the people affected by the tragedy would fight through the challenge. Blanco thanked the assistance of everyone during the horrific event, such as, law enforcement and first responders. The speech was very powerful because of Blanco’s use of rhetorical devices, ethos, pathos, and logos.
The Audi R8 Big Game Commercial, "Commander" talks about an old man who is thinking about his time as an astronaut. He misses it and he just stares at a wall and doesn’t talk to anybody. His son comes with his Audi R8 and he gives the car keys to his dad to drive it. He becomes happy and excited and it makes him relive his time as an astronaut. The commercials purpose was to promote the Audi R8 car. Watching the commercial, the intended audience for an adult man with a son. I say that because the main character’s are an old man and his son. This commercial instills values like the past meaning reliving what you loved and also family. It’s not effective because it doesn’t use the Rhetorical Appeals like Ethos and Logos but, it does include Pathos which makes it somewhat good.
Companies and other forms of media strategically use the three rhetorical appeals, ethos, pathos, and logos, to market goods and/or promote ideas. The appeals have been used for centuries are still prevalent in all types of modern day propaganda. If used correctly, ethos, pathos, and logos can be used as clever tactics to engrain information into the brains of consumers. One of the more notable ways that brands use these appeals are commercials. Google, the world’s most famous multinational technology company, used the three appeals to reach success. Even after gaining worldwide recognition and years of experience, Google still uses the appeals to attract customers. A
While creating my rhetorical analysis paper I used all of my typical writing processes. I began this assignment by selecting a commercial that I thought would be the most appealing in the superbowl. After selecting my commercial I did some research at the library using EBSCOhost. I then created an outline on what my paper would be about and pieced all of its parts together. In the future I will try to recieve help earlier on because at first I struggled to understand what the purpose of the paper was. Eventually I was able to figure it out on my own with research and through asking peers, but it would've been a lot easier to just ask for an advisors or instructors help.
Milk is refreshing, muscle building, and nutritious. “Got milk?” uses this advertisement to get this point across. It consists of Taylor Swift, whose portrait is in the center of the ad, flirtingly leaning on her dark red guitar lined with a light tan rim. Her smooth pale face is slightly tilted to the right as she is seductively gazing into the camera with her starry brown eyes. She has a gentle, small, pearly white smile, which is adorned with the white stain of milk. She is wearing large hoop earrings, one of which is covered by her slight hand, leaning on her graceful neck, and a silk bracelet. Both are jewel studded and colored light brown to compliment her blondish tan spaghetti strap dress that matches her flowing slightly curly golden
This advertisements claim is that if someone drinks Gatorade, he or she will be as athletic as Dwayne Wade. The ad is persuasive because Dwayne Wade is one of the most athletic and skilled basketball players in the NBA, and he drinks Gatorade, so others feel that if they drink Gatorade that in return they will be just as athletic. Most people may not believe the ad to that extent, however they will at least realize the fact that if a professional athlete is using the product it must be a good decision. Gatorade made the advertisement effective because of its logical appeal, and since Dwayne Wade is a well known basketball player, and he drinks Gatorade other athletes may feel the need to as well.
The picture I chose, shows an image that is in the public eye of today’s society, the image of smoking and how people can be affected by it. In this picture, viewers can see how smoking can really affect one’s life and how the addiction can be harmful to not only the outside of the body, but also the inside. This photo shows a controversial side of the appeal that people become addicted to cigarettes and, even after trying to go cold turkey, some people still cannot get over the addiction. The first thing that is noticed is the noose. The noose is being wrapped around the woman’s neck comparing the cigarette to the noose in attempt to show death. The next thing noticed is the knife, in attempt to show the smoker slicing their wrist. The ad
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.
