Hello! And keep away from Castle Lemongrab - YouTube

In this short PSA given by Lemongrab, his tyrannical actions and the castle in which he reigns can be seen as an allegory for Hell. Lemongrab wears a Black Dictator's uniform while his brother, who is also named Lemongrab, wears a white version of his counterparts dress. These two can be viewed as opposite sides of the coin due to the fact that the White-dressed Lemongrab later helps Lemonhope to defeat the evil tyrant that is his brother, properly demonstrating the conflict between Heaven and Hell.

The Divine Comedy

The Divine Comedy | Keagan Renaud's Archetypes Project | Scoop.it

The Divine Comedy is a perfect example of the battle between Heaven and Hell. The poem starts out with the Main Character, Dante, finding himself lost in the woods. The woods symbolizes the fact that he has been lost in his own sin, and the beginning of the poem, inferno, addresses these blasphemes as Dante Travels through Hell. The archetype of Heaven vs. Hell is very symbolic throughout this text because throughout the poem Dante's sin is washed away and he is brought closer to Heaven and to God. As Dante furthers his own journey, Heaven and Hell compete for his immortal soul through the atrocities witnessed in the Inferno, and the Cardinal Virtues practiced in Paradiso.

The Who - Heaven And Hell - YouTube

The lyrics "On top of the sky is a place where you go if you've done nothing wrong, If you've done nothing wrong. And down in the ground is a place where you go if you've been a bad boy, If you've been a bad boy." are clear cut evidence as to the societal regulations on morality and whether or not a person's soul can be claimed by heaven or hell.

Apple Commercial - Angel vs. Devil - YouTube

Funny Apple Commercial, angel versus devil. http://www.wazzup.nl
Keagan Renaud's insight:

The commercial uses the symbols of Red or White to signify the Angel and the Demon inside everyone. They often have polarized views that conflict with one another and the human in between the two must choose whether to follow the evil within his heart or the goodness that flows through his soul.
