A "bandwagon" is, figuratively speaking, any cause or movement which has become popular very quickly and which many people join because it is popular and there is a social pressure to join. In today's slang, it is some cause which is "trending". The temperance movement was an example of a bandwagon; so was the "save the whales" campaign. Many darker movements also have the characteristics of a bandwagon: the rise of Nazism for example.

The bandwagon effect literally means jump on the wagon filled with band members of circus clowns. Then one day a ring master named Dan Rice used the phrase jump on the bandwagon because whatever complaint the circus clown had the other clown followed. So there for the bandwagon effect is just when any persuasive element being advertised or shown is capable of persuading any body to join with that movement.

In the 1800s, mustangs were a big thing. The advertisers used the propaganda "Bandwagon" to advertise. Bandwagon is the use of propaganda when the advertisers say lots of people of buying mustangs and use that to attract buyers. So they said lots of people were buying mustangs therefore, new and different buyers will come and buy it.It's basiclly saying that if everyone does it. you can do it too. it gets you to follow the leader. An example would be " If the this celebrity uses this toothpaste, you should too"
