    Hi all!

    Look at the chart on page 32. Pick an ad and write about the rhetorical situation (purpose, audience, rhetorical appeals, modes and media) and the genre conventions (common examples, style, design, sources).

    If the ad is a youtube video or a link, please post it! I haven’t figured out how to post pictures here yet, but if somebody does please let me know!

    Rhetorical Situation:
    1)Purpose – To make people download their app.

    2)Audience – People who have grammar problems.

    3)Rhetorical appeals –
    a)Grammarly it’s a big app that most of the people are using now to fix grammar (Ethos)
    b)Does not have a Pathos
    c) It really fixes your grammar problem by using it (Fact&Edvidence)

    4)Modes and Media- It is a video that convinces you to download the Grammarly app on an electronic device

    Genre:
    1)Common examples – It shows up on youtube most of the time before you start a video.

    2)Style – It shows you how can you make ur papers, emails, chat in a better wording and it also shows you when you spell a word wrong.

    3)Design – Grammarly color is mostly green. Green is a color that represents right and red is a color that represents wrong. So having green as their color will make you feel like it will make you have a good paper (personally opinion)

    4)Sources – No idea where they get their source from.

    Ad Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koPmuEyP3a0

    Purpose:
    This is a bit of a different look in comparison to a general advertisement. They are trying to promote shaving cream by teaching boys how to be a better man in all aspects of life. Ultimately, they are trying to sell their product by giving out awareness in several issues in the world.

    Audience: For men and boys who are beginning to obtain facial hair.

    Rhetorical Appeals:
    Ethos – One of the most popular brands of shaving cream.
    Pathos – They try to connect with their audience and promote how to be a better man is not only shaving cream but treating people with respect.
    Logos – None.
    Modes and Media :
    The Ad utilizes video, audio, and text to convey a message of being a better man and that is what their product is about; to be a better man.

    Genre:
    Common Examples: This Ad is on YouTube, and begins to play in between videos.
    Style: To showcase being a man of respect and dignity will make you a better man. And that is what Gillette wants you to be, by using their product.
    Design: The sounds were conforming and worrying in the beginning and then uplifting in the end. They also began it with concerning issues in the world being treated poorly into ending it with how it should be treated.
    Source: The sources they used were based on the countless arguments and issues that the U.S is facing on toxic masculinity. Cat-calling, harassment, and bullying.

    Side Note: This commercial tries to connect with its audience by telling them how to be a better man. The problem with this commercial is from a marketing standpoint and not an ethical standpoint. Ethically, this is actually a good commercial. It provides awareness on issues the country is facing and trying to inspire men to teach their kids to be respectful(since they are the future). From a marketing standpoint, this is one of the few commercials such as the Kardashian/Pepsi commercial that doesn’t bode well. You cannot tell people to act a certain way if they use your product, or even insult your customers about them potentially being toxic. This puts division in your customer base which is the opposite of what an Ad should do. Since the conception of the We believe campaign, Gillette has lost 8 Billion dollars. It just wasn’t the right look for a company selling shaving cream.
