I noticed a stark contrast between the TV advertisements for the Ontario and New York lotteries 

So, I think all the money from lotteries should go to health care and parks, anyhow, and they have a monopoly on GAMBLING- why do they need to market that? 

I also noticed a dramatic difference between the Ontario lottery commercial,  where we see young adults choose to live the a fast and luxurious lifestyle with their winnings and older people choose to ‘keep land in the south of France in the family,’ and the New York lottery, where we see a father who gets to play with his children all day and a man runs dogs from the shelter through the park because they won the lottery.

 What would  a sociologist if she only had these artifacts to go on glean about our two cultures?
