Do you believe that this is merely coincidental too?

Here's why I think it's intentional. The black and white photo of the man shows him in an empty field. Instead of looking outwards (to the left) where all the open space is, as you might expect, he's in one corner of the picture and looking towards that corner, where nothing else is.

Nothing until you start to turn the page and the liquor ad shows through. That makes a man who wasn't looking at anything, now looking at an open whiskey bottle.

He is also a man by himself, as most alcoholic (solitary drinkers) are.

(This example is from a newsmagazine.)
