What other attempts at persuasion are present?
Evaluate a recent video advertisement you saw (either on TV, on social media, etc.). Specifically, what type of persuasion method the commercial is using. Is it using the foot-in-the-door technique, setting the context and thus mood, familiarity, pointing out weakness as well as strengths, or persuasive communicators? What other attempts at persuasion are present? How does what you learned this week support why the advertisement is likely to work?
