Visual Rhetoric Rewrite
WWE’s Titus O’Neil|Fatherhood Involvement|Ad Council
0:00-0:03 The video opens to a buff man wearing a purple shirt, unbuttoned at the top, turning up the volume to a music player. The wall in the back shows regular paintings someone would see as average house decor. His trimmed beard and grin reflect a sharp personality. After raising his tunes, the camera cuts to him pouring out ice into a bucket, probably for drinks.
0:04-0:07 His next moves show him filling a bowl with pretzels and then seen with cans placing one back into the fridge. What is inside the can is unknown but there’s evidence that he could be hosting a party or get together with friends. The next cut shows the man open his front door with a serious face but immediately turns it to a great smile seeing the delivery man with his food.
0:08-0:11 After answering the door, the man proceeds to unfold a small, square, green table and folding chairs to go with it. The table could be for gambling or regular card play. As he settles into his seat, he takes out a deck of cards and places them on the table. At this point, we could assume that the “party” will contain music, snacks, drinks and card playing.
0:12-0:15 Purple shirt guy shuffles the deck and passes the cards to unknown players. These players could be friends, family, clients, who knows? Maybe he is the dealer or maybe he’s also a player.
0:16-0:19 The frame cuts to him reading his cards close to his face concealing them from other players and he looks to his left at one of his opponents and then the camera zooms out revealing his name and affiliation as WWE superstar, “Titus.” The camera zooms out revealing a kid on both sides of Titus with sandwiches and juice. Both kids are speaking to him as he looks concerned. Do these kids belong to Titus? Could they all be related?
0:20-0:24 Hearing the kids out, Titus cracks a smile and slams his cards to the table, laughing. Both kids are dancing as it appears the kid to his right won the game. Everyone smiles with joy as the camera cuts to black. Turns out the party wasn’t for adults only.
