And people who'd walk a mile . . .

. . . for a Camel, as stated in the image above.

Implying that a Camel cigarette was a mile's worth better than other cigarettes.

But would he go the extra mile?

For a camel? But could this phrase have another sense, as in doing something for a camel? And how does that change the way we think about camels? Perhaps more inclusive, I shouldn't wonder: As in the first case camels are objectified, while in the second (and whatever it is we are doing for them) we are recognizing their rights and treating them justly. (Albeit said, calling them them does seem to pose the problem of treating them as an other.)

Right! And what does the fact that we will smoke them mean? That we are mean to them?
