Is McDonald’s Using Subliminal Advertising?

Okay, it’s tinfoil hat time. Check out this video (I forget where I first saw it):

How bizarre, eh? If the network and McDonald’s are forced to respond, I’m guessing they’re going to go with “ah, that’s just some freakish accident–we had no idea the Golden Archs were flashing for a single frame during our shows!” Good luck to them.


  1. i think that subliminal advertising does work, but the trick is that you have to get caught doing it.

    1. you spend a bit of money inserting frames or airbrushing in skulls and naked people into ice cubes.

    2. people find out about it.

    3. everyone runs around posting your ad on their blogs, something they wouldn’t do otherwise.

    as long as the message you’re hiding is not “kill your mother,” i think most people who hear about it will want to see it for themselves. (how often can a company have people actively seeking out their ads?)

    getting caught creates interest in the ad/product, but not really any bad feelings toward the company. were people angry at pepsi when they found out you could stack the cans and the combined designs spelled sex?

  2. Here’s an example;take the world famous Virgin logo.If you turn it slighty to the left so that where the underline and tail of the g form an X,you’ll also notice the V forms a slightly hidden S and the i,r and part of the g form a broken capital E,spelling the word SEX.
    So you have Sex/Virgin in one word.Very clever Mr.Branson.
