very nice!!!!!you'll definitely have something great to work with
I read an entire article about Joe the Camel in High School and the lawsuit in high school. Very interesting. Should be fun to analyze and add historical context as well.

This ad seems a little funny in retrospect, as it seems to have become the poster child (no pun intended) of subversive advertisements. Especially for us, as media students (most of us) who have only come across this ad as an example of poor practice.
