You might have seen utensils on which pictures of pop movie-stars such as Yangom or Oshin are printed; objects the advertisement of which is the responsibility of another media, i.e. television rather than a packaging which shows the merchandise itself to the customer. Even Walt Disney today makes earns not as much from the animations it produces than from the accessories produced based on cartoon characters: a mug with a picture of Mikey Mouse dancing with his girlfriend.

Even if you are not a fan of cinema, it would be good idea to take a look at Hamideh Razavi’s ashtrays. On one ashtray, Scarlett has Rett in her arms and on another, Elvis is singing incessantly for ‘Dear Marilyn’ as the ashtray is being filled up with cigarette butts.
