This is my favorite campaign ad, 1 minute and 11 seconds of fallacy after fallacy:

Ad hominem, stirring symbols, etc.

And then for extra fun, you can show the Funny or Die spoof:

Oh my. That's, umm, something, isn't it. Bless his heart.

I've used many of the ones listed but my freshmen like the Jar Glove for slippery slope:

I probably enjoy this more than the students do, but....

All you need is Love, indeed!

I use the IKEA lamp commercial (which I discovered here on the In the Classroom forum years ago) to teach pathos in general; I could probably use it for the sentimental appeal, too. But I tend to rely on Sarah McLaughlin's sad dogs for that one.

Students this semester identified the Budweiser commercial in which the horse recognizes its former trainer as sentimental appeal. They were correct, sir.

I don't use a video but many of my examples of slippery slope fallacies end up with someone living in a van down by the river.
