Fitzgerald’s metaphor of comparing Daisy’s voice to “money” suggest how much Daisy values her wealth and status. Daisy’s “indiscreet” and “money” voice demonstrates how she is willing to give up anything for wealth. Daisy’s dream of becoming wealthy is blinded by her love for Gatsby. As Gatsby shows Daisy around his mansion, he began throwing his shirts and Daisy began crying because she has “never seen such beautiful shirts before” (92). Gatsby’s expensive shirts symbolize his wealth that he earned to win Daisy’s love back.

Mohammed Shahriar Keith Evans English 1301 11 November, 2016 Quiz 5: Old Spice Very few advertisement products are as memorable as a trailer for old spice called “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like.” Even without the use logos, this commercial is successful due to how it masterfully utilizes ethos and pathos to make it very memorable in the eyes of the audience. An example of ethos can be seen in the very first shot of the commercial, it sets the tone for what the ideal man is supposed to look like. The speaker is a handsome, ripped, shirtless man and he compares his physique to the husbands of the wives that are watching the commercial. Old spice is a body wash and it uses this image of an ideal man to gain credibility for itself.
In Alice Munro’s story “Wild Swans”, Rose is imagining things that may confuse people into thinking that she is being sexually harassed. Rose is a young girl who rides on a train for the first time and is seated next to an old man. She feels the old man 's hand on her leg in a disrespectful manner but it is all in her head. It is proven that Rose was only imagining the old man’s hand on her leg in a sexual manner in the since of: her own desire of wanting pleasure, the old man 's kindness and age shows that he is blameless, and lastly pressure shows that what she was feeling was a ten dollar in her pocket not a hand. Rose wants to be “Pounded, pleasured, reduced, exhausted”.

In an attempt to win Daisy back from her lifestyle of “Old Money”, Gatsby becomes excessively greedy with his money. While he himself may not care about wealth, he knows Daisy does. Therefore, when Daisy comes to his mansion, he flaunts his expensive shirts. “‘They’re such beautiful shirts,’ she sobbed, her voice muffled in the thick folds. ‘It makes me sad because I’ve never seen such—such beautiful shirts before.’” (99) In this moment, Gatsby makes it clear to Daisy that he could easily provide her with the same lifestyle she shares with Tom.
Now here is where the humor gets a little extreme and weird. Candide begins to remark on the horrid state of Pangloss ,however Pangloss says that this is for the best. Pangloss has another theory that everything that happens is for the best. He rationalizes that since the transmission of the syphilis could be traced back to the New World, and Christopher Columbus also brought back chocolate from the New World, all had worked to the best possible ends. This will make one laugh till tears are produced because it is such a ridiculous anecdote.
Pitiful Ichabod and his scrawny horse are the opposite of the usual strong hero and his handsome steed portrayed in the typical Romanticism literature of Irving’s day. Washington Irving pokes fun at Romanticism by making a ridicules “knight” who is unable to defeat the “monster”, or win the hand of his girl. The frightening “headless horseman” encounter that Ichabod experiences is an example of an imagination gone wild when there was a perfectly rational explanation. Why would Washington Irving want to poke fun of Romanticism? He did this in order to create a story that would give the reader the opportunity to laugh.
What happens when James Bond convenes Ernest Hemingway and decides to intermix into the most interesting man in the world? The answer is the birth of the seemingly witty, charming, salt and pepper bearded Dos Equis leading man. Not only has the charismatic television commercials boosted the Dos Equis brand, I find myself anticipating new ad commercials in order to hear the elite superlatives Mr. Dos Equis has now conquered. Mr. Goldsmith, the leading actor in the commercials, is so revered that, one ad says, "if he were to pat you on your back, you would list it on your resume," (Shultz, 2012, p.1) while another ad pronounces “He gave his father ‘the talk’; “He once won a fist fight, only using his beard,” (Bommarito, 2012, p.1) and the lists go on and on with these hysterical narrative one-liners.

Proctor and Gamble’s Old Spice/ The man your man should smell like. “Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady.” Is the message of this advertisement for Old Spice aftershave located here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owGykVbfgUE The video aired as a television ad, but can be seen on Old Spice’s official YouTube channel, where they poke fun at stereotyping in a statement in the “show more” section of the videos page as follows: “We 're not saying this body wash will make your man smell like a romantic millionaire jet fighter pilot, but we are insinuating it.” The video is for men’s after shave and features a muscular, athletic looking man with a deep British sounding voice who asks the audience (he refers to as “ladies”) to compare their man to him by asking several times to look at their man and back at him. Then suggests that their man is not hi, but if he stop using body wash which smells like a lady and switched to Old Spice he quotes “He could smell like he’s me.” (Old Spice, 2010). Although the commercial can be perceived as satire on stereotyping what a man should look and smell like, it is still focused on ladies, and suggests what a
It provides a wonderfully positive, drone like testimony from Helene Kuhn who dares anyone to try and prove MagnaSoles did not heal her of her affliction. The outrageousness of the statement parallels the actual real life testimonies used in real ads, which adds to the power of the satire in the utilization of actual tactics. The power of these quotes continues to build to the article’s moral of the shamelessness of certain approaches in order to sell a product. Adding to the drive that companies will promise anything in order to make a sell, even if the promises they make are so out of left field that the consumer should know they are
