Superliminal

Was flicking channels last week (I think it was last week, the days seem to run together now!) and saw some ABC program about the Arias shown on Channel 10. Subliminal messages! Apparently Channel 10 was inserting adverts into music video clips.

I searched youtube, found a video. (Have no idea how to post the video, so you'll just have to click the link and watch it that way). If you have trouble finding the subliminal message, pause around 00:02, 00:12, and around 00:20. Have a desire to buy Olay? Well, I don't. How do these subliminal messages work?

It cracks me up! Reminds me of that episode of The Simpsons where N*SYNC were featured, about joining the navy. The general guy said there were 3 types of messages: liminal, subliminal, and superliminal. Superliminal - hey you! Join the navy! (Sorry, probably only die hard Simpson fans would know).

I think its pretty much been proved that subliminal advertising, um, actually DOESN'T work. I mean, I watched the ARIAs and I didn't suddenly rush out and buy Olay products. I mean, I did, but thats cos my skin was really dry. Then again, I had just been swimming, so....
Anyway, I suddenly have this strange urge to rush off and join the navy, so TTFN.

LOL... "that's right - Lieutenant LT Smash".

Everybody reading this may be interested to know that all forms of subliminal advertising are permitted in Australia so long as the subliminal frame occurs in an advert.

Free TV Australia created a loophole in its Code of Practice (Parts 1.8 and 1.8.4) that excludes advertising from the list of programming where subliminals are banned. As a result, advertisers can insert subliminal frames into their ads with impunity.

You can confirm this by checking out the Code at:

If you want to object to this unethical practice, the Code will be up for another public consultation next year.

Alternatively, you may want to tell Free TV what you think now:
