Advertising: An Inescapable, Yet Rude, Aspect of Today's Society Advertising is perhaps the most pervasive aspect of today's society. You cannot escape from it.

“Image is Everything” “Thirst is Everything, Image is Nothing” we have all seen this slogan slapped on to every one of Sprite’s products for last couple of months. But what does it mean?
