The basis of this assignment was to select an advertisement or commercial and analyze it by demonstrating my understanding of the rhetorical strategies; ethos, pathos, and logos. I choose a Super Bowl commercial put out by Budweiser depicting a feel-good message about drunk driving. The famous beer company traded in the Clydesdale horse for an adorable puppy to play the part of a dog who was left at home while his owner is out partying for the night. In this analysis, I address the intended audiences that the Budweiser commercial was catering to while addressing the subject, language, and predominate images used in this advertisement. I aimed to determine the overall purpose and stating whether or not the commercial was effective in persuading
In the advertisement, Puppy, Monkey, Baby, Mtn Dew takes a unique approach to appeal to their audience. The commercial begins with three guys mentioning how they would like to relax for that day, however, a hybrid animal appears out of nowhere. This unexpected appearance leads to a chain of events where eventually the three individuals follow the animal and drink the beverage it gives them. A few rhetorical techniques were used to draw the viewer’s attention, one of them being repetition.
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.
The farmers are treated poorly by the big name companies. The health in the United States is declining severely, 16% of children are obese,have diabetes, and other major health problems. In David Barboza’s article, “If You Pitch It, They Will Eat It,” Barboza argues that big name food companies are targeting the youth of society, because they will watch a show on television and see the food products at the store with their favorite character on the packaging. But the food that is being marketed to the youth is unhealthy for the human body.
There are so many types of abuse including physical, psychological, sexual, verbal and so many more. This particular one shows a Muslim woman who wears her veil, but the thing that sticks out the most is her bloody eye. Physical abuse is something that, unfortunately, anyone can go through. Whether it be a woman or a man, no one should have to suffer through the pain. Sadly, it doesn’t matter what race, gender, sex, or age someone is because there is someone waiting to intimidate or control them. This advertisement is one of many that sends a message of a tragic doing that happens all over the world. Women between the ages of 18-24 are most commonly abused by an intimate partner. 1 in 3 women have been victims of some
Using the “Four Ps” of marketing Product, Place, Price, and Promotion, advertisers use paid public presentations of goods and services in a variety of media to influence consumers’ attention to, and interest in, purchasing certain products. Television has long been the medium of advertising to children and youth. Children view approximately 40,000 advertisements each year. The products marketed to children, sugar-coated cereals, fast food restaurants, candy, and toys have remained relatively constant over time. But marketers are now directing these same kinds of products to children
In general, this ad effectively uses the appeals of pathos, making for a very effective advertisement. Whether it be through an emotional connection through the children or a relatable connection that uses the viewer’s own experiences, its use of pathos is very well done

Zinczenko strategically uses emotional pathos through his example of obesity in children. Children are innocent in tone, therefore helping him explain that they are innocent in spite of the manipulation of the fast food industry. The author presents the issue of the lack of nutrition information in fast food. He’s not dissing the fast food industry; rather, he is stating the problem at hand that should be taken care of. He sympathizes with the fact that he too was once a kid whose two daily meals were from typical fast food restaurants.
In conclusion, the Chevrolet Silverado commercial “A Boy and His Dog” is an extremely effective commercial. The writers use of emotional persuasion, ethics, and logical situations create an advertisement that develops a relationship between the viewer and the product.

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. “Aristotle’s ‘ingredients for persuasion’ – otherwise known as ‘appeals’ – are known by the names of ethos, pathos, and logos.
In addition, the ad strives to bring awareness and educate the public about the all too real and horrifying facts of animal cruelty. One of the elements used to support the message is the powerful image of the neglected dog. Light is used to create contrast, and it serves to bring to the forefront the focal point. The viewer’s eye is immediately drawn to the timid and emaciated dog chained to the barrel, stating its claim as the ad’s focal point. In addition, the obscure dark area serves to set a somber mood reinforcing the message of the dog’s helplessness and desperation.

The entire advertisement it is focused on evoking a response of empathy and compassion for the girl. Again, the face of the girl is strongly related to this appeal because the audience feels touched by her suffering. Also, it is very hard to see how the happiness of the girl diminishes and turns into sorrow. For example, the advertisement starts with the girl celebrating her birthday and everybody singing “Happy Birthday”, after that the mother says “Make a wish” and the girl blows the candles of a pretty decorated cake. In contrast, at the end the mother sings her the same song but this time the girl is completely devastated and there is only a lonely candle on top of a metallic plate containing some food.

The ad makers carefully crafted logos and ethos appeals to give reasons and knowledge for their audience to buy their product. They also used humor and comic to make the audience watch and feel more comfortable thinking about the proses of pooping.
