The paper examines the advertisement where Anna Nichole Smith endorses Trim Spa, the diet product that claimed credit for her weight loss. The paper analyzes the elements of all three components of classic rhetoric in this advertisement; its obvious use of an ethical appeal (ethos), an appeal to emotions (pathos) and an appeal to a logical conclusion (logos). The paper identifies the targeted audience of females who identify with the message of the importance of losing weight to maximize their attractiveness, sex appeal and power in relation to men.
