Image one is a Target newspaper advertisement. The headline “Come in Spinner….” is next to two rounded red-and-white concentric Target logos arranged as if tossed in a game of two-up. The strapline is “For your great Anzac weekend savings!” The advertisement advertises discounts for boots, sporting footwear, Egyptian cotton sheets, and electrical goods.
Image two is a pink-bordered advertisement for a “natural non surgical face lift” product. It is a plastic pink mask covering the eye area, temples and cheeks, and illustrated on the left half of a woman’s face. The mask is a little bit Hannibal Lecter, a little bit Phantom of the Opera, and a whole lot of pink. There is a further photograph setshowing a woman reading a book wearing the mask and a white dressing gown, then sleeping on a white-sheeted bed with the mask sitting in the foreground. There is a large pink badge on the product illustration declaring “PERFECT GIFT FOR MUM”.]
