WHAT IS A GOOD ADVERTISEMENT TO WRITE A RHETORICAL ANALYSIS ON?

QUESTION
WHAT IS A GOOD ADVERTISEMENT TO WRITE A RHETORICAL ANALYSIS ON?
I have to write a rhetorical essay on an advertisement (6 page) therefore, I need a good, really good advertisement to analyze and I have been looking but I cannot find any good. Can any of you think of a good one?

ANSWER
hmmm there’s a go-gurt commercial where the son leaves notes all over the house for the dad to pack his go-gurt in his lunch and the end says “dad’s who get it, get go-gurt”. There’s kind of a lot there you could write about how family dynamics have changed. Back in the day it would have always been a mom packing the kid’s lunch, and a mom doing the grocery shopping and now that is being targeted towards more involved or single dads.

There are also those makeup commercials (not sure the exact brand) that say “for that perfect airbrushed look”. You could talk a lot about the beauty industry today and how’s that has changed. Now that magazines airbrush the crap out of everything, normal people feel they don’t look up to standards and they need all this makeup to try to look airbrushed instead of just natural. And also delve into how that affects self esteem in youth and teens.
