Resurrected Pop Culture

Images of deceased celebrities are brought back for advertising purposes

Implications - When an iconic celebrity passes away, their memory lives on with their fans -- in fact, many cases see a celebrity's fan base increase post-mortem. Companies have caught on to this and are capitalizing on it by using images of deceased celebrities in their branding tactics and other initiatives. This speaks to the consumer preference for nostalgia.
