Official Ram Trucks Super Bowl Commercial "Farmer"

And on the eighth day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, "I need a caretaker." So God made a farmer. God said, "I need somebody willing to ge...
Jenn Conners's insight:

This Ram truck commercial is using the logical fallacie of "begging the question."  This commercial indirectly assumes that everyone watching believes in God.  It also assumes that people have read the bible and know about the days of creation.

Brett Novek Taco Bell Commercial 30 sec

Good quality Taco Bell ad with model Brett Novek for Bacon Club Chalupa. http://trickguys.com/reality/brett-novek/
Jenn Conners's insight:

This Taco Bell commercial uses the hasty generalization fallacie.  The commercial is saying that all men like bacon, then show three men that do and imply all men are like that.  The commercial also uses a rhetorical strategie of analogy.  They describe the smell of the food to be so good that men flock over when they smell it.

Sarah McLachlan Animal Cruelty Video

Sarah Mclachlan supports the BC SPCA End Animal Cruelty campaign with "Angel"
Jenn Conners's insight:

In this animal cruelty video all three presuasive appeals are used. The video uses logos appeal by giving the statistics of dogs that were rescued last year.  The video then goes on to use pathos through out.  The entire video is made to pull on the strings of your heart.  The music playing in the back ground and the faces of the dogs stuck and in pain tell a sad story of abuse.  The ethos appeal is the fact that the woman in the video is famous Sarah McLachlan.  The fact the main character is famous sends the message that if a famous woman is saving animals then you should be saving animals too. This video also shows a rhetorical strategie by the use of narration.  The video is playing out a story, narrating these animals lives and how they live, and how they will continue to live if you do not donate to the fund.

Betty White Snickers Super Bowl Commercial 2010

Betty White Snickers Super Bowl Commercial 2010 My MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/ebayneatstuff2008
Jenn Conners's insight:

The posted ad is a commericial for snickers candy bar.  It uses the post hoc fallacy.  The add portrays a foot ball player as Betty White, who can not play foot ball.  After Betty eats the snickers, the character is then changed back into a male foot ball player, implying that after she ate the snickers she could play foot ball.  It is a false cause and effect of events.

2010 Kia Soul Hamster Commercial | Black Sheep Kia Hamsters Video

Visit http://www.kia.com.au Check out the latest Kia Hamster commercial for the 2010 Kia Soul featuring Black Sheep. You can get with this or you can get wit...
Jenn Conners's insight:

The Kia Hamster Commercial is showing "The either-or arguement" logical fallacie.  The commerical is implying that you either drive a Kia or wont be driving a car at all.  In this particular commerical they are also using a rhetorical strategie of "comparison- contrast."  They are showing the consumer that their car is appealing and other cars make you look like you are riding in a toaster.
