Raúl Alfonsín was the first democratically elected president after the Argentine military dictatorship. Title of the poster may be a reference to a popular Argentinian novel written by Silvina Bullrich. It is a pre-photoshop, altered photo in which Alfonsin's head was added to the picture. Margaret Towner believed that the Coca-Cola logo, which was associated with the United States, was meant to symbolize Alfonsin selling out and appeasing American interests.
