NarrativeThe advert argues to protect card holders from identity theft. The goal of this advertisement is for the audience to learn from this advert rather than waiting there making it happen to you. The commercial “hooks” the audience with humour (pathos). The woman’s voice coming out of a man catches the viewer off-guard—this is not a typical way to push people to do something but to yet the mismatched voice hooks their attention long enough to watch the 30 second advertisement. Along with making the audience laugh, the commercial makes the viewers feel empathetic because the thief is taking away a lot of the victim’s hard-earned money. They will also feel anxious that if this could happen to them. This idea will also contributes to the logos of the commercial because it shows that some people will stop at nothing to get what they want, and viewers realize that nothing exempts them from identity theft. The commercial is relevant to the goal of persuading the audience to their hard earned money and retirement funds.
