It's excellent. Well worth the one hundred minute investment - it explores the history and development of subliminal advertising techniques, debunking the ad industry claims we don't use them and if we did they wouldn't work; documents that the basic goal of subliminal advertising is to hook some very basic needs and or fears, documents the goal of instilling anxiety for the purpose of providing a solution, which is whatever product being sold - including of all things - BUSHITE.

It does not go into great detail regarding the creation and use of what I call Manchurian Candidates but it does provide a starting point and it offers individuals who are very clear in their warnings against the general practice of deceptive, fraudulent, and /or subliminal advertising.

It was OK, but they barely scratched the surface and no accurate mention of multi-pronged marketing/PR.

Not to make you any more paranoid, but new research is done every day that could be misused by all sorts of marketing firms.


There's one for today.

The drug used is for the treatment of schizophrenia, and side effects on humans don't include that, I guess they can't ask the mice.........Yet.

Still it is interesting that they can create a "false" memory.

I don't mean to encourage you, but it was published, so others will be trying to repeat and adjust it further.

My main point in posting this was to show that research into these things are real and on going and you know that someone, somewhere, is going to find a way to apply it to humans. .

Here's the actual paper. I haven't read it, but it is published.

These are the kinds of things marketers play with each and every day.

Keep in mind that this is light stuff too. More in depth research to these ends will never see the light of day.

Manufacturing consent is real.

I started to watch and it's already heading towards a description of multi- pronged marketing/PR.

I read the book Subliminal Seduction many years ago, so I found the interview with the author to be pretty cool.

I'll try and watch the rest later. Thanks for the link.
