A visual rhetorical analysis utilizing Sonja Foss's Narrative Criticism and examined through Walter Fisher's Narrative Paradigm Theory was conducted in this thesis to examine the persuasive nature of narratives conveyed through visual representations. This thesis analyzes meaning construction through the visual elements in the political ad "Something Creepy This Way Comes", an internet video produced by Generation Opportunity, a Koch-brother funded PAC.
