Ah! I remember her now. She was Carl Reiners daughter in "The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming!"

Here's her smootching the young Russian youth who was a crewman on the undersea boat.

Serious question...give me an example of subliminal stuff from today.
I know I've seen those older vids and what they do. What's the latest today?

I take it you mean repulsed by the sexual inference?


For myself, it's not exactly the sexual inference that's the turn off. It's more the implication that I, the viewer, am so shallow that I'm going to run out and buy something promoted with a partially naked broad

@chai2,
At least according to my limited knowledge learned in a 101 Advertising Class, they are supposed to subliminally make you want the product.

And see how it works - you do not even realize you have been sold on the product!

@roger,
I know you are a secret sexual subliminal purchasers - you just went out and bought whatever those half naked chicks were peddling.

You can't fool me

Andrea Dromm was very effective as the girl in the Clairol Summer Blonde television commercials.

Not everyone realizes that advertising agencies actually employ psychologists, sociologists and social anthropologists to help them analyze how to persuade a consumer to buy something. Studies are carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of various gimmicks to promote a product.
Agreed, though I'd specify that it is usually to persuade the consumer to buy their product over the competition. I doubt many companies think they can compel people to buy their products soley based on the advertisement. But when someone has a headache, the companies want the ad that best demonstrates how shitty having a headache is, not necessarily what makes their product better.

One of the lesser "liminalist" forms is product placement in flicks. Its done so that a product is incorporated into a scne . If done well its subliminally.DERINK COCA COLA transmitted

Oh!

I just thought of a REALLY effective ad I've seen....



You've got tons of other funny condom ads out there that in no way would want me to choose that particular brand, or even make me think of buying condoms
And believe me, I was a user of condoms for many years.

This one for instance....
Funny, I suppose so, if you want the old "buffon almost gets caught" thing. But, really bad lesson at the end. Keep condoms in your glove compartment? No way, the heat would damage them.





and now, one that is just plain funny....

A great deal of advertising is done to establish/reinforce image and name recognition, which only secondarily lead to sales.

Instead of asking whether an ad makes you want to buy the product, ask yourself if the ad left you with a good impression of the brand. If it did, you are more likely to choose that brand when faced with a buying decision.

You know, I've never really gotten that. That even if the Word sex is in there it's going to give you the sub message to buy it. I mean really, reading the word sex is no big deal. Even if I wasn't aware of it at that moment, isn't going to make me want to buy it.

I don't like skittles.

@Linkat,
Frankly, I've never even looked at a skittles package.

The only time I ate them was when someone gave me some, and I didn't see the bag.

So, are you saying I would have liked them, and bought again, if I'd have seen the bag? (maybe)
