To continue the "victory" symbolism, there has been at least one earlier
time when that chain of associations was used in a commercial for some
over-the-counter medication;  I remember writing about it back in the 70s.
What brand it was I don't remember, but it was to be construed as "victory
over the headache."  I used it as an example precisely because the set of
associations was so complex, yet somehow powerful.
