EXAMPLE FROM WEIGHT WATCHERS AD Weight Watchers uses a spokesman to persuade overweight men to join Weight Watchers. The spokesman used is Charles Barkley who is pictured and quoted in the ad. This makes the overweight men trust Weight Watchers because they saw him turn from a superstar athlete into an overweight man. They grew up watching him play basketball for the 76s, Suns, and Rockets. They also remember him as a member of the famed Olympic Dream Team. The men also recall his weight gain. Now, the men can see that he used the program and lost weight. The overweight men have gone

through the similar experience of being in shape in their younger years to being overweight. This persuades them because they believe that if Barkley can do it, they can also do it.
