Nothing the way I see it if you are stupid enough to fall for subliminal messaging(Buy a Les Paul) then you (should send it to me) shouldnt complain.

Subliminal messaging affects people subconcioulsy. It's a very covert, very immoral form of advertisement. You can't 'fall' for it.

Its wrong because its brainwashing people into doing things they might necessarily not want to do, buy, etc.

Good example is The simpsons episode were they are brain-washed into joining the navy.

you dont have a choice to 'fall' for them.. the whole point is that they use certain techniques to subconsciously motivate you in a certain way to buy a product, or to do something else. its a subtle and mild form of brainwashing almost.

they wont flash on the screen "BUY THIS CAR" a bunch of times, and then you leave your house and put a down payment down on an audio...

no, there's different types of subliminal messages, and sometimes they work, sometimes they dont. we wouldnt really know because subliminal messages for the most part are illegal anyway.

Almost all forms of subliminal messaging are illegal,
I think. I'm not really too sure about the
Different laws in different countries, but if someone could put up a link to an ad on
Youtube or something, that could be pretty interesting

Well, with regards to you failing for putting subliminal messaging in your
Ad, I think that it should have been recognised as an interesting averitisng technique,
Not as something that you should be penalised for.
To be entirely honest, you should have been given higher marks for incorporating
Such a complex marketing ploy on your work.

Also, take into account that your ad was never released, and therefore there were no
Negative effects as a result of it.

So, has anyone found any ads with subliminal messaging in them, and is it legal in
Great britain?

I'm still trying to find an ad on youtube!

So, has anyone else managed to find any? Or is it
Too hard to tell where it is?
I don't really want to have the sudden urge to
Leave my house and buy a load of beer or something, though, even though I'd
Like some kind of alcoholic substance right now.

Well, anyway, that's beside the point. I think it could be pretty
Awesome to see some subliminal messaging in action, and to see if it really works.
Nevertheless, it could end up working, and
That could get a bit inconvenient for my bank balance!

Oh well, it's
Not as if it's really been affected in recent times,
Even though I really want a new guitar.

The was a study in a New Jersey movie theater where during the previews, the theater flashed subliminal messages saying "Buy food" and "go to the concessions stand" and the like.

It did NOTHING to sell more food.

Subliminal messaging doesn't affect behavior, that's probably why you failed. It can implant the idea, but it doesn't actually make people do things.
Can't stop the signal.
#31
first of all, theres different techniques and ways to use subliminal messages. it isnt simply flashing somethnig on a screen. why? because people are aware of it.. if you notice something quickly flash across the screen you'd probably be thinking 'whats up with that?'. think like 50 yars ago on tv ads or something, when subliminal messages weren't necessarily a "problem". it doesnt affect behavior, everyone knows that. its just meant to linger you with a thought or something to that effect.

and there's little subtle things that companies/people do with them tat you're completely unaware of.t he whole point is that the messages (which cna be anything..) will be interpreted by your brain on a different level that you're not even aware of. its weird, but you have to understand that the whole point is you're not aware of it. also, just keep in mind theres different techniques. like i said before, its not just simply flashing something between frames like you might think.

they have been proven to be successful, but like i've said, it all depends on the technique, setting, and type of people. children if anything have been subjected to more subliminal messages by companies. infact, this is even proven by many researchers. companies today for some reason have been targeting minors for their advertisement. apparently the goal is to mold teenagers, and pre-teends with products and ideas and cultural things now so when they're older they've already been maniupulated.

advertisement is a very interesting thing wheny ou really look into it

Wait, do subliminal messages even work? I could have sworn I heard somewhere that they have no actual effect.

If anyone has any proof that this stuff actually exists, please post it. Subliminal messaging has always interested me, but I have never seen an actual subliminal message or anything, as far as I know...
