The advertisement I am doing is for The Humane Society Of The United States. The Humane Society is encouraging people to support and fund their organization to protect abused animals. This organization is important because they help animals who are cruelly abused and neglected. I am writing about this because it is important to treat animals with love and kindness. It does not matter if they are on four legs and can not speak, they still deserve to be treated as if they were children.
This commercial tells us a remarkable story of love/bond between Labrador retriever puppy and a Clydesdale horse. First there were the majestic beautiful horses on a horse ranch, and then there was this adorable playful Labrador retriever puppy on a puppy adoption center, who daily escaped and made his way to the horse ranch to play and be friends with his favorite famous Budweiser Clydesdale horse. The horse trainer/caretaker religious picks up the puppy and hands him or
For this essay I will be using the commercial made by Budweiser for the 2015 Super Bowl, “Lost Dog.” This advertisement is about a tiny lost puppy getting far away from home and most importantly, the friendship between this puppy and some Clydesdale horses. In the beginning of this commercial, the puppy is shown hiding under some hay, and then he proceeds to jump into a random trailer which initially gets him lost far from home. There is no dialogue in this commercial aside from the music in the background, but the advertisement shows the distress of the owner through facial expressions and scenes where he puts
In the 2015 Budweiser’s “Lost Puppy” commercial, we immediately see a special bond between a dog, owner, and horse. The commercial starts off with the relationship between the horse and dog, and how they don’t want to be separated. Throughout the making of Budweiser commercials, Budweiser has created a strong connection with puppies. Budweiser has used the puppy to create a story line to create more than one advertisement. The commercial then gets to our emotions when the puppy goes missing after jumping into the back of a
While this commercial does not display much logos due to the solely emotional premise of this commercial, it more than makes up for that void through the noteworthy use of pathos. Budweiser effectively puts the viewer’s emotions in a chokehold from the beginning when the lively puppy pops its head out from the pile of hay. This hold only grows firmer as the commercial progresses with lost dog posters, which feature a photograph of the lost dog and the horse. Next, Budweiser catapults the audience into an emotional roller coaster when “bud” is seen trembling in a box near a trash bay in the city, followed by an intimidating wolf approaching the travel-weary Labrador retriever. However, like most effective advertisements, Budweiser leaves the viewer with a warm feeling in their heart when the commercial is all said and done. This technique of presenting a story loaded with emotion appeals heavily to the American culture because people in society today often choose emotion over logic. These type of stories not only make the viewer more likely to buy the product, but also leave an imprint in the audience’s head that continually associates Budweiser with patriotism and the pursuit of the American Dream. While the pathos in this commercial is extremely strong, the commercial has absolutely no credibility without any ethos, which is more implicit than explicit. Budweiser is a traditional beer company that has always been supportive of both patriotism and the American Dream. This commercial alone proves that Budweiser has a strong ethos through the fact that this ad has over 29 million views on YouTube in only seven months. The lack of logos in the commercial is more than made up by the persuasion employed by pathos, and the credibility that the ethos of the
When it comes to these sad, pathetic animals displayed on the commercial, humans feel so strongly towards them because a huge population of the people own animals themselves. When people see the images of hurt pets in this commercial, they could picture their own pets as the ones that are malnourished or beaten. This makes the effect of pathos so much stronger here. The animals shown scared with wide eyes, frail legs and overall shabbiness, emphasize the animals’ helplessness and more importantly, aims to bring out the emotion of the audience. The slideshows of the animals are shown slowly to really catch the upsetting look upon the animals’ faces. The main focus of the video is that there are abused, neglected and lonely animals out there that can be rescued, fed, and sheltered if the viewers could just contribute a monthly gift of $18 a month. The clips of the animals in agony like the broken dogs in bandages, and cat shown with a missing eye, serves to visually affect the audience, while Sarah, who is a musician known for her emotional music, and for being a true supporter of animal welfare, is used to feature her song "Angel" in the background, and make a guest appearance. Sarah 's song is used in the commercial to
The principal reason for this commercial’s success is its ability to make the audience connect with Mr. Smith on an emotional level. While a love for a dog itself may not be as persuasive when applied to selling televised sports packages as it is to, for example, selling dog food, it is what this compassion does for the ad itself that helps it sell its network. The commercial is shot using seamless transitions from one scene to another and slow-paced dialogue. By the time the commercial is over, Parker Smith is running onto Kyle Field and saying “She gets nervous, but excited too,” which he said with a smile on his face. Because of the simplicity of the commercial, by the end, the only thing people are going to remember is the sweet moments coming from someone who loves a dog. Therefore, people who see it are tempted to see it again and will most likely do so by conducting a search on YouTube, probably to see Reveille again or to see how Parker Smith progresses through all the different scenes, which is beautiful in itself. Although one may never actually buy the SEC Network, the fact that the ad was so memorable is
The commercial appeals to the audience’s pathos more than anything. Animals, especially dogs, have a way of pulling with human heartstrings. “...they can be used to transfer desired meanings to the products with which they are associated” (Phillips 1). In other words, using animals in advertisements can link advertised products to the feelings that are associated
In February 2015, Budweiser released a commercial named “Lost Dog.” Unlike many other commercials, “Lost Dog” tells a story of an incredible friendship between two different animals. This friendship successfully catches the audience’s attention and captures their hearts. The commercial effectively persuades the audience to purchase their beer through the use of pathos, logos, and ethos. Although Budweiser uses the fallacy of non-sequitur, the commercial still works in their favor to prove their point. Through the use of different rhetorical strategies, Budweiser’s commercial was able to triumphantly make their audience feel several emotions in just one minute.
Budweiser is known for creating advertisements that convey messages that you wouldn’t otherwise tie with beer. In one of their more popular commercials “Lost Dog”, they attempt to show that your “buds” will always have your back, just as Budweiser will always be there for you. Budweiser managed to relate this life lesson to their notable company and a wide-range of viewers. In the “Lost Dog” commercial they successfully persuade viewers to buy their beer with the use of rhetorical appeals including ethos and pathos, while also lacking in the third appeal logos.
Because the advertisement was aired five months after the September 11 incident, there were intense emotions among the American citizens. Budweiser was aware of this and created a commercial with strong emotional appeals. With pathos loaded, the advertisement seems to appeal to the viewer’s emotional senses. In the beginning, a character in the form of a man is fascinated by the horses. The image of the horses is reflected in the glasses of the windows. Business takes place in this area, but he takes a break from all the activities to watch the passing horses because of the awe factor that the Clydesdales stimulates. Thus, as an audience, I will resonate with the man by showing the same reaction. The behaviors of the man are expected to the audience how they should react as well. They are expected to stop every activity they were performing and understand the powerful message conveyed by the majestic creatures.
A strong healthy dog is pulling a wagon of a pretty bag of dog food that looks healthy and tasty. The dog food sets perfect and looks great in the wagon. The little puppy is pulling this big wagon of dog food up a steep winding road, to show his strength from eating Beneful dog food. The wagon with the dog food in it says “Incerdibites Bring out the incredible in your small dog. The advertisers attended audience is anyone who owns a small dog. The ad also says “it’s not the size of your tail it’s how you wag it. That statement is saying even though it’s a small puppy. It’s how they wag it by being happy if they eat the right dog food. This ad uses a lot of detail and color, which really makes it stand out. They use a very pretty back
The color gives a fun an youthful appeal. The heading is a supposed quote from the pup stating, “I enjoy licking faces. And toilets’ -Koji.” This ad also has a slightly medical appeal as it has the medical cross right at the top of the advertisement. This ad appeals to logos in the fact that it is promoting a product that boosts the immunity of your pet because “dogs will put their mouths on anything” and “every dog has his can” so this ad is saying that in order to protect your dog, pick this product, and that you can pin point which food to buy based on the buyer’s dog’s specific needs. This ad also appeals to pathos as it mentions that this food is going to not only be tasty for your dog but also have the healthy ingredients needed in order to protect them, letting the buys know they are making the right choice fro their animal by buying this product.
Throughout society, advertisements have been known to be found everywhere. They encourage people to purchase products by showing symbols that represent a certain type of quality and so forth. There is such a variety of ads today, but print advertisements have been very potent, since the print, color, text, and photography found in them lure attention and intensify the visual presentation of that particular product. In this case, two advertisements created by Budweiser in 1962 have exhibited men with beer having a good time with themselves. However, there is more than just laughter in the two that make these two ads look and feel effective enough to buy because of the many differences, but also similarities, to put into greater depth of American
