Post Hoc Fallacy Of Joey's Fridge

108 Words1 Page
The video of Joey’s fridge is an example of Post Hoc fallacy. At the beginning of the video there is a scene where Joey has discovered the fridge is no longer working and Rachel walks in. Joey tells Rachel that since they are now roommates he would like half of the cost of a new fridge from her. His logic is that his parents bought that fridge not long after he was born and it worked fine up until the time Rachel moved in. Therefore, the fact that Rachel now lives there is the reason why the fridge broke so she is responsible for paying half the cost.
