What kind of girls are you looking at?
I've never seen a vagina that looks like a purse!
You need to upgrade sir.

PS Gays see a penis in everything.

Thats the point of perception without awareness. It is what its called.


You have put your mood as "Psychedelic".

Might I be correct assuming that it is the start of the "Shroom" season in the UK?
Might be an idea to stay off the "ad" watching while feeling "Psychedelic".
No good will come of it.


First time I had watched T.V in a while, couples days in I Saw this advert. I was completely sober. Accusing me of taking drugs and then using that accusation to pointlessly slander my post is hardly decorum IMO. Regardless of what my mood says.

Whether or not it is the true intention I can sort of see what you are saying. Big is bad. Only small is acceptable. Girls should aspire to small things. To be small. To drink diet coke in order to be small. "You should lighten up" could be code for"You're too fat...so drink diet coke and get skinny" like these darling little marionettes. Then you got that whole embracing of vapidness and materialism thrown in there just because its trendy. Hmmnmmm...perhaps I have been on this site too long

That is pretty much exactly what I was trying to convey. There seems to be a lot of symbolism, perception without awareness and suggestion in this video.

Don't troll in my thread please. If you disagree with me or can't see what I am talking about then say so don't troll. Star hunting/Trolling is extremely childish on a forum like ATS. It also shows potential ignorance.

Flicked on the T.V once when I was sober for the first time in a while. Saw this advert. Accusing me of taking drugs and then using that accusation to pointlessly slander my post is hardly decorum IMO. Regardless of what my mood says.


The first line of your reply speaks volumes.
Ok then, no more humour as you obviously offend easily.

I reworded it. You knew that's not what I meant which is obviously why you pointed it out as a joke again. This isn't the time or place for jokes or mockery mate I'm trying to convey an important issue.

Yes I guess being born without a sense of humour is a serious condition and I should be more sensitive.

Don't be infuriated,
or sick,
laugh at their pathetic attempts to influence you.
Your reaction could be ascribed to most advertising,
sex sells.
Only if you are buying!
Laugh, and be grateful that you are smart enough to see it for what it is.

I really am sure that there is something malevolent in this advert. I think it would help a lot of people in this thread if they really thought about what 'Perception without awareness' actually means, especially in circumstances such as advertisement.

And no (Lol) I do not work for an advertisement company whoever suggested that earlier. And no I do not have a sense of humour when I am trying to seriously discuss what I believe is a malevolent agenda which could badly influence our society.

I don't find dangerously skinny girls very funny really. Or forced commercialism. Depends on what your sense of humour is like I suppose..

You're here talking about it so regardless of what you see or don't see in the ad, you're helping them market the idea/promotion

You were that one claiming that you "Flicked on the T.V once when I was sober for the first time in a while".

I can't believe how funny that was, I honestly thought that you meant what you had typed.
I have spent about five minutes looking at it and realised that you had missed some punctuation.
I honestly didn't spot it at first.

Oh my god finally someone who gets it! You rule! Viral marketing is so much more effective than traditional types. The people getting all outraged about stuff don't even realize they are doing the commercials work for it.

Advertising doesn't just rely on perception alone, awareness destroys its facade so perception without awareness is the one thing that makes its efforts redundant. That sounds contradictory but awareness cannot be shown but it can be learned. Some people (like yourself) see through what they are fed, but you cannot open another persons eyes. Just be grateful that you can see and don't get mad, get aware.

Sublimininal messages are the goal of MSM advertising as you know, there is no way to protect the vulnerable (their target audience) against the banal lifestyles that the corporate class wish to impose. Forced commercialism is simply a result of a failed educational system that conditions rather than educates.
Dangerously skinny girls are no funnier than dangerously fat girls

'I'm lovin' it!'

Smart girls are the best.
Good thread BTW, scream out loud against all that rails you.

Okay, I have tried, I really have, to see what you mean. Could you please give me a few pointers on the writing and messages I should be looking for. I want to be "aware" but in order for this to happen I need a few pointers.

I am not dissing you in any way but I just don't see it. Thanks.

Haha... thank you. Bad marketing works better than good marketing all day long. Outrage equals chatter equals sales.

While the advert is an assault to my eyes during breaks, it's hardly pushing the thinsperation agenda.
Most likely it's trying to trick thinnies into drinking the vile crap since everyone I know reckons that diet rubbish makes you fat, and from what I've witnessed its probably true.

Like others said, only thing I find offensive in this and the other Diet Coke ads featuring the puppets are the blatant unfunny in them and the fact that it's selling Diet Coke which tastes horrible (although definitely better than any kind of Pepsi, that brand just tastes like water to me)

Hey, did you not have a tv in the decade when Diet Coke ads revolved around women at work causing things like a broken elevator just to get an "attractive" male to rescue them?
