Did anyone else notice a brief flash of text? Sheesh, I thought subliminal messaging was a tad more subtle.

Ah! And here's what it says:

"Avoids a common cause of irritation"

It's just as she looks up from her food, which is supposedly tasting quite a bit better.

subliminal advertising IS more subtle. did you notice that the voiceover says "prescribed by eminent physicians, to those who smoke." to those who smoke? doctors probably were given a test that said, "would you recommend any particular brand to those of your patients who smoke?" and the doctors answer no. therefore they prescribe it to their patients who smoke.

also, the guy in the video during that "physicians" bit was not a doctor at all. now THAT'S subliminal advertising--even if you know the guy's just an actor and not a doctor, your subliminal mind makes the association anyway.

tv is eVil.

Speaking of subliminal, try to find the word sex in this drawing. I found it, but I had to see the small version to finally get it, now I see it all the time.
