In Advertisements R Us by Melissa Rubin, she analyzes how advertisements appeal to its audience and how it reflects our society. Rubin describes a specific Coca-Cola ad from the 1950’s that contains a “Sprite Boy”, a large -Cola Coca vending machine, a variety of men, ranging from the working class to members of the army, and the occasional female.

Advertising is a strategy used to pull in someone’s consideration of a product or item of sale. Publicizing is a critical and basic method for organizations to make themselves known in the advertising game. Most ads can be found in daily papers, magazines, bulletin, transports, web, and on the radio, flyers, pamphlets or publications. Basically here is the point of an ad.

This is where the Arby’s advertisement comes into play. The Arby’s ad brings a hunter’s hunger down to his basic desire for meat, and preys on his natural instincts.

Four techniques writers use to attract readers are the use of ethos, logos, pathos and Kairos in their text. Ethos is a method used to gain trust in the author. Logos uses facts and statistics to add credibility to the author. Pathos is used in stories or experiences to connect the readers emotionally to the text. Kairos is used to determine when is the right time to release your piece of literature.

While Zinczenko argues that unhealthy junk food is an unavoidable cultural factor, Balko presents the thought that the government should have no say in it’s citizens diet or eating habits.
When viewing advertisements, commercials, and marketing techniques in the sense of a rhetorical perspective, rhetorical strategies such as logos, pathos, and ethos heavily influence the way society decides what products they want to purchase. By using these strategies, the advertisement portrayal based on statistics, factual evidence, and emotional involvement give a sense of need and want for that product. Advertisements also make use of social norms to display various expectations among gender roles along with providing differentiation among tasks that are deemed with femininity or masculinity.
