Tommy Hilfiger endorses Gigi Hadid, a fashion model, a Victoria Secret Angel, and even comes from a well known family. Companies endorse celebrities by means of using their social status to gain a wider viewing audience. Certainly, Gigi Hadid has many fans and followers through her rise of fame in the past few years and marketers target this fame in effort to obtain more awareness. Lastly, an element needed in making a persuasive advertisement is conveying a sense of pleasure and pursuit of happiness. The viewers must want to buy the product to be just like the people in the advertisement. They want to be cool and socially accepted in the world and gain popularity like the actors in the ad, especially featuring celebrities.

The commercial shown in figure 1 is for a perfume called ‘the one gentleman’ which Matthew Mcconaughey a well-known actor did for Dolce & Gabbana, a trade mark for designer products. The commercial tells us that this is a body spray to use when one wants to be seen as a gentleman. In reality a gentleman is not a man who just uses this body spray, but a man is seen as a gentleman by certain attributes society sees as being acceptable. Commercials like these can really have an impact because the viewer wants to look like the person with the body spray, and themselves be perceived as a gentleman. The unspoken

Calvin Klein effectively formulates ads that grab the attention of their audience, to purchase their poignant cologne. American men want to look and smell perfect for their better halves, and the Calvin Klein brand feeds into this shared desire in society. The brand establishes a buying audience through the use of multiple appeals to pathos, and by providing a window effect in this ad for Escape.
Advertisements come in various shapes, sizes, and mediums, and as humans, we are constantly surrounded by them. Whether they are on TV, radio, or in a magazine, there is no way that we can escape them. They all have their target audience for whom the advertisers have specifically designed the ad. When a company produces a commercial, their main objective is to get their product to sell. This is a multibillion-dollar industry and the advertisers study all the ways that they can attract their audience’s attention. The producers of advertisements have many tactics and strategies they use when producing an ad to get consumers to buy their product. These include things such as rhetorical
television advertisement companies, main intention is to captivate the audience in other to purchase their product that they are portraying. In this essay, I will be analyzing these two ads, “Whale” (Old Spice) and “Susan Glenn” (Axe). These ads are formulated to get their products noticed, along with sparking the interest of the other goods they may offer. Countless methods are used to convince the audience that’s being targeted to buy the product. Therefore, these ads are similar in its ability to gain the attention of their audiences by appealing to pathos. Through this essay I will analyze the rhetorical effects that help bring these commercials to life.
In today’s time we come across a vast amount of advertising using various forms such as outdoor billboards, print advertisements, TV commercials and online advertisements. Advertising is a very common means of getting customers to see one’s message, brand and product. However, it is apparent that advertising is intentionally deceptive in the sense that it tries to prey on one’s weaknesses as a human being. For example, beer commercials constantly use sex appeal with attractive women to charm men and perfume commercials use the idea that their product will bring women the love that they have so long desired. Likewise in the Nike advertisement featuring Serena Williams, the advertisers use vivid visual elements to convey the idea that Nike products will make the consumer popular, athletic, beautiful, skilled, talented, hardworking and ultimately successful. This definition of Nike is achieved through the use of the famous athlete, the words of the ad, her facial expression, her stance and the background scenery.
The Old Spice body washes commercial” The Man Your Man could smell like” was aired during the 2010 Super Bowl. In the beginning of the commercial, Old Spice man located in the bathroom and standing in a towel, bare-chested. Old spice man said “Hello ladies, look at your man, now back to me, now back at your man, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped using ladies scented body wash and switched to old spice, he could smell like he’s me.”(Old Spice). Old spice man asks his audience this question as he transitions from the bathroom, to the sailboat, and riding on a horse. The commercial ends with Old Spice man saying he’s on a horse. The camera zooms out and unveils to the audience that he was sitting on top of the horse. The
Advertisers, especially fragrance advertisers stick to a ‘house style’ and because of these similarities we have expectations of what they will include. The advert I have chosen is Estee Lauder perfume, which features Kendall Jenner. Some of the features we expect on fragrance adverts are glamour, beauty and attractiveness to be shown. It is very common for advertisers to use well-known celebrity such as Kendall Jenner. It is a technique to get people looking at the advert because audiences admire celebrities, success and importantly ‘beauty’. If a ‘normal’ ‘everyday’ woman were to be used for adverts then it would catch less attention, as they are not known and the product would sell less because people assume, if celebrities use the
The television commercial was telecasted in November 17, 2008 (11 years ago) through known as banned comedy type commercial.

In the competitive market America has today, all companies strive to be the number one choice for consumers out of all their competitors. To achieve this goal, companies use various strategies in their advertisements to appeal to the public.

An array of young models, each idealized and every one showing themselves off in a beautiful, yet sexual stance. The focus on flowing dark hair and thin bodies draped with trendy clothes that in some cases leave a lot of skin to be seen and admired. The idea of perfection personified through facial expressions of self-confidence and uncompromising appearances in each image. These are just a few ways in which Calvin Klein’s ad campaign tries to attract costumers. Attempting to convince the public that Calvin Klein clothing will look as impressive on anyone and will have people staring in envy like many do at the ads is the technique being used in this ad campaign along with many other aspects such as the setting, the outfits, and the
When one looks at an image from Calvin Klein, Victoria's Secret, or Versace, the first appeal comes from beautiful models. These individuals are normally jumping, laughing and representing every idealistic way of life by manifesting the idea of a blind promise. Unfortunately, these images are not only created with the intent of being manipulative, but also to resemble the present history involving societal roles. At the moment, Ads are able to capture the political ideologies or the social influences in order to represent the position of modern times. On the other hand, the Versace brand recently released a new campaign on Fall clothes bringing to light a different topic. At a quick glance, the Versace Advertisement depicts the everyday family of four. However, through John Berger’s Ways of Seeing, the picture represents the hegemonic portrayal of male dominance, the suppressive forces of society on women, and the influence publicity has on the surveyed. Through this lens, one can understand the social relations and expectations publicity creates for individuals.
