Add to EJ Playlist The first commercial is an example of ethical persuasion. The commercial presents a straightforward message through the use of a speaker. He tells the audience about the dangers of tobacco use using facts and statistics. He then tells how the Iowa Smokefree Air Act has helped decrease tobacco related illness and saved money in Iowa, and citations are visible on screen. A logical point is then made by the speaker that it has only been two years since the act was enacted, and that a lifetime of clean air would certainly be beneficial to the citizens of Iowa. The commercial uses non-threatening imagery and logic to convince the viewer to vote no on a proposition. The music used is somber while tobacco illness statistics are being presented, but encouraging during the information about how the act has been working. This makes the commercial an example of an ethical persuasion technique.
The second commercial could be considered propaganda. The second commercial still presents a straightforward message through the use of a speaker, however in this commercial, no real facts or statistics are stated. The speaker is using an artificial voice box, implying that he is the victim of tobacco related illness, and gaining the sympathy of the viewer. He then tells the viewer that smoking is not cool or glamorous, and threatens them with the potential harm that comes from tobacco use. He point out that tobacco use hurt him, and it could hurt the viewer too. The commercial uses a dark ominous drone throughout, causing the viewer to feel apprehensive. The colors and imagery in the commercial are also threatening. The smoke in the background makes the viewer feel surrounded by tobacco use. The lighting makes the viewer feel like they are being interrogated, and the colors are dark and high in contrast, creating an ominous feel. This commercial relies on pure emotional appeal and shock value in its content and imagery to sway the viewer, making it a good example of propaganda.

Add to EJ Playlist Caught this commercial completely by accident when I was walking out of the room and suddenly became entranced in the familiar theme music of Vince Dicola's Rocky IV training montage. So I set up the TV Tuner to see if it would re-air during the night, and, alas, here it is. The spot features Maria Bamford.
Target has it on their own channel under "Montage." I didn't initially see it there, but I figure I might as well keep it up here unless Target or Vince or whoever owns the song rights objects to it.

Add to EJ Playlist What is the video's argument? Who is the intended audience? Give one specific example of how the video uses rhetorical appeals (either emotional, ethical or logical) to persuade the audience of its claims? If your example involves some combination of appeals, that is fine.
