    Jasive Montes Aida Mayorga Andrew Arnold ENGL 1301 21 October 2015 A Tug on your Heart The ad that we chose for this assignment is a commercial from the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The commercial offers a way for the audience to relate to the subject through commonly held emotions. By incorporating the hopes and wishes of the children, it allows the audience to experience the children’s dreams of a better…
