We all know that subliminal advertisements are right in front of or eyes but rarely see evidence thereof. In the following link at time marker 9:02, just after the host says "big wad," a frame with a Cialis advertisement is flashed. Heres the link:
Cialis Advertisement on Travel Channel
I'll attempt to put the video into this thread after I post.

I would watch it, I really would, but I don't think I could put up with 10 minutes of the Travel Channel! Do you think you could post some screen shots etc...?

It almost seems to blatant, to be subliminal.

Although alot of the posts, don't indicate anyone knowing, except for the ones I presume are yours


Almost looks obvious, i'd like to see it on a Tivo or something.

What I was thinking is that when it was transferred to the internet, the frame-rate was reduced and those frames were extended as a result.

I am willing to bet that if I made you sit down and watch that entire clip without informing you before hand of what to look for.

I could have asked you what you seen at the end, and Cialis ad's would not have been your answer. It only seems blatant because your perception going into the viewing is open to the fact that an advert is going to flash. If your perception did not aknowledge that reality, you're conscious would have almost never noticed it.

This is some of the clearest subliminal advertising I have ever seen.

Where it gets interesting, and what has always baffled me...

Is that it has been proven time and time again that subliminal advertising is only marginally effective versus in your face legitimate advertising. I believe the first test of this was in old cinemas, they tested it flashing frames which said BUY SODA and BUY POPCORN, the response was meager compared to when they just ran an advertisement for snacks and drinks at the concession.

Why legitimate products even bother using subliminal advertising really bewilders me. The only reason I can see for it, is when you have an illegitimate message that you want passed subconsciously like THE DEVIL LOVES YOU, or something as bizarre as that. Legitimate advertising dollars are spent much wiser on conscious advertising. But then again, what does 1 frame of an hour long show cost?

I am going to have to agree with you there. I only caught one at first. After I replayed it knowing that the advertisement was in the clip, I saw a few more that I had missed the first time.

I kind of agree with you, although a little skepticism comes with it.

That's why I brought up the fact many of the repliers to the video, didn't even mention it at all.

I tend to think to, if I hadn't of fast forwarded that it wouldn't of crossed my mind either.

Which, all I can say is, weird, and scary.
