video

20 comments:

  1. 1. I think the video advertised the product well.
    2. This video appealed to logos because it shows how much easier and life is with a Shamwow. It also appeals to pathos because "Vince" claims that with every purchase of a Shamwow, the company will donate money to a charity.
    3. For improvement, I suggest using some more rhetorical strategies.
    4. I thought the commercial was very entertaining.

  4. 1. I think that the product was advertised very well.
    2. The commercial appealed to pathos because they stated that money will be donated to people in Uganda, and many people would be willing to buy a product that will not only benefit them, but also the people in Uganda. It also appeals to logos because in comparison to anything else (regular towels, etc), the Shamwow has been used to clean up messes everywhere-it's logical.
    3. I suggest using more rhetorical devices throughout the commerical.
    4. This commercial was creative and funny. I liked how it appealed to both teens and adults - ranging from a breakup to a household mess.

    3)Some of the editing is choppy and cuts words off.
    4) This was very funny and creative
