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
Many people are familiar with the phrase, “Just Do It.” This slogan stands out immediately and a swoosh or check mark comes to mind. Nike is one of the most widely known clothing and shoe companies across the country. During a Nike advertisement there are three rhetorical strategies that are displayed when shown on a commercial. Those three main ideas are pathos, ethos, and logos. Nike draws in peoples’ attention and gets viewers to agree with them and buy their product with the help of these three factors. Nike is a very successful company because of how they draw in their audience and display their commercials using ethos, pathos, and logos.
College sports is one of the best-known entertainments around the world. But for the athletes, they are students first then athletes second. For college student-athletes, there are a variety of scholarships and grants to help pay for college or college debt. However, some critics say that student-athletes should be paid a salary like pro athletes would, with help from scholarships or grants. The authors of, College Athletes are being Educated, not Exploited, Val Ackerman and Larry Scott, argue that student-athletes are already paid by free education and other necessities. With this article having a very strong analysis evidence such as the appeals to logos, pathos, and ethos. I agree that this article is very effective. Throughout this essay, I will analyze the article through its context of rhetorical analysis and evaluation of argument claims, and logos, pathos, and ethos.

Lastly, the logos are very effective in persuading its audience. Although, Nike presents the advertisement as factual the advertisement doesn’t use any statistics or facts and numbers, but use the speaker and the boy to make a logical appeal to audience. The speaker, Tom Hardy, makes the advertisement argument sound very factual when he tells the audience that we can all achieve greatness, and it’s not some rare DNA strand— you just have to do it. By saying so the audience now has this idea planted in their head, and can inspire the audience to do it when they realize it. The boy again, also plays a role in this logical appeal. By showing the boy actually doing it, it makes the speech sound credible. Nike does this so that the audience will
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
The commercial published by Chevrolet in 2014 is an exceptional advertisement. This commercial advertises the Chevy Silverado truck. However, this commercial does not only influence the audience to purchase a truck but; the advertisement portrays a life lesson that every person should know and practice. The commercial by Chevrolet titled, “A Boy and His Dog,” is extremely effective and persuasive to the audience through emotion, ethics, and logical situations.
The appeal of logic in this advertisement is the weakest among the others. There is one small appearance of logic, which relates to the infant. In the commercial, the infant is frightened by the dog but is comforted by the stuffed lion. Therefore, the father realizes what he can do to help the infant become more comfortable around the dog. That is when the father opened his Amazon app, and ordered a lion’s mane, hoping to make the infant more comfortable around the
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.
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.
Nike is the biggest and most popular company when it comes to sports, closely followed by adidas. Nike releases many commercials in order to stay on top of their business and bring in more money. One of the best soccer related commercials they have made is ¨Winner Stays On¨.It is a sports commercial made in attempt to attract more people to purchase their soccer gear. This commercial could appeal to any soccer player or aspiring professional athlete because it revolves around the game of soccer they are playing to determine which team gets to stay. The phrase winner stays on is commonly used in all sports as a way of competing against each other. The commercial uses many methods like the use of pro soccer players, good editing, variety of camera angles, music, humor, skills, and a storyline to
Another rhetorical feature used by Nike in the “Ripple” commercial that runs hand in hand with music, is tone. In writing, tone is the essence in which is presented throughout the advertisement. Like most sports apparel brands, Nike usually uses advertising that provokes motivation through intense training videos of athletes sporting their gear, or high energy training. These videos are accompanied with upbeat music that sparks different emotions and reaches the rhetorical appeal, pathos, from different means. The tone that is created in the Rory Mcilroy Nike advertisement is much different than the up tempo commercials even though it acts mainly on the same appeal. The commercial uses a much more easy-going tone to aid in the process of connecting the audience with the young boy in the play. In addition, it serves to slow down the
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.
It is not that simple to get 40 million viewers on a video in YouTube! Nike Sports Company made an astonishing advertisement that mixed the meanings of rhetoric with a sense of humor to make an advertisement that hooked the audience and filled them with inspiration. The smart use of logos, pathos, and ethos by showing actual people wining prizes, a commentary that motivate the commercial figures, and real professional players from different sports made the short video special and unique. The video demonstrates that it is only a blink of an eye between being born and becoming a champion, and that we can push our limits beyond expectations.
