Poster shows a full page photograph of a brown and white cocker spaniel pulling down the swimsuit bottoms of a bare chested adult African American woman on a green background. The woman has a large afro and is standing with a hunched back and bent knees. One finger is placed in her open mouth. Caucasian skin is visible in the area previously covered by the swimsuit bottoms. The image is a parody of the iconic Coppertone girl advertisement where a black cocker spaniel pulls down the swimsuit bottoms of a little blonde girl with pigtails.
