A perfect example of this is the commercial for Shamwow, and how “Vince” has a slight cockiness to his personality when presenting this product to the viewer. In order to capture the attention of your target audience, one must try to tap into the emotions and try to implement a particular idea that will leave them with a particular emotion. By creating an upbeat and happy advertisement, people will be able to make that emotional connection with the product.

Just because a soldier comes back and has PSTD does not mean he will go into a work places snap and go on a violent rampage. These men and women come home and want come back into society and be accepted, welcomed, and feel like they have helped the people they fought for. The don’t wanna be singled out and and ignored because of what they went through, it is just not fair not to hire someone that is perfectly qualified and able to do a job and not give them that job because they were a veteran.
The message I will be conveying is the importance of embracing failure. My role will be myself as I understand myself the best. The audience addressed will be my fellow classmates. In the format of a speech.
Beowulf is a very great epic. An epic that shows how one prince can become a great king of the Geats. A great warrior like Beowulf, ready to fight and make something of his title proves how heroic he is by going to battle the monster Grendel.
The World Wide Fund for Nature or WWF for short has worked at reducing our carbon footprint for over 45 years. Even since 1985, the World Wildlife Fund Network has invested over $1.165 billion in more than 11,000 projects.

I am going to discuss WWF’s cause and importance, how they are working to conserve nature, and how all of you can help support the cause.
An American literary theorist and novelist, Kenneth Burke, once said, “Wherever there is persuasion, there is rhetoric, and wherever there is rhetoric, there is meaning.” (Burke) Barack Obama, Martin Luther King Jr. and Fannie Lou Hamer all delivered powerful persuasive speeches that will go down in history.

We can observe this in the speakers’ rhetoric devices like ethos, logos and pathos.
