Description The text compares the persuasive strategies used in similar political videos, The Great Schlep (2008) and Přemluv bábu (Convince your grandma, 2010). It shows that even though Přemluv bábu does not differ from its American original in the overall structure, the declared goal or the theme, it moves away from the original clip in other persuasively important aspects. The differences are especially evident in a construction of audience, the role of the speaker, and in the topical choice expressed by particular stylistic instruments.
