probably not – but only because of the logic of the this selector.
Remember the point of "this" is that it selects the item that, in this case, triggered the hover. The idea of this is to very specifically target the item like that.
So to add selectors to it would mean you are trying to select another element, and in that case you should be using another method of selection. Just keep in mind the idea of "this" is to select that specific element and nothing else.
