Bandwagon VS Name Calling


Bandwagon has three purposes:

  • One purpose is to get everyone to do the same thing as one person.
  • The second purpose is to not make anyone feel left out.
  • The statement they use for this is for everyone to "jump on the bandwagon".

Fun fact: Bandwagon is one of the most common techniques used in wartime and peacetime.

Some examples are:

  1. Bandwagon is used in gaming. For example it is used Worlf of Warcraft.
  2. They are shown on food and drinks: McDonalds billboards saying how many burgers they have sold. 11 billion sold...all right I'll have one!
  3. There also used in music. The 1959 album title 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong: Elvis' Golden Record.

Name Calling

Name Calling also has three purposes:

  • One is that it is the complete opposite of Glittering Generalities.
  • The second reason is that it gives a perceived negative image.
  • The final purpose is that it is very seldom in advertising.

Some examples are:
