    Unhappy "Advertising aims to persuade people that buying a product will make them happier"

    Hello Teachers,
    "Advertising aims to persuade people that buying a product will make them happier"

    People is direct object
    and "that buying a product will make them happier" is noun clause that serves as object complement ?!
    Thanks
