Subliminal Messages

Well, are they out there?

Are products we buy, and the ads we see, powered by subliminal messages?

Do you think they have an effect on us?

Is the center dial on an IPOD supposed to represent a nipple?

thoughts?

I think they influence us subconsciously.

I am skeptical, while there may be some experiments in marketing I think that they would be less effective than the word of mouth surrounding their existence.

I don't have an ipod or any of this fancy techno computer stuff, so I'm not talking about that. I think certain images on TV commercials were subliminally sexy when I was growing up.

Sexy images in print and television advertising are a bit different than the iPod nipple theory (hadn't even thought of that before).

Never thought of the iPod as having a nipple before. It looks the way a piece of Apple hardware should look, any other design and it wouldn't look right, IMO.

I can't really think of any subliminal messages off the top of my head, but maybe that's the point?

They're there. I took a psychology class in my senior year of high school and the teacher spent an entire class period or two showing us ads with subliminal messages.

Do they work? I would tilt towards no given the studiest that have been done.

Yes. But that class was three years ago, and I don't remember what the ads were that we looked at. I just remember coming away from it with the understanding that they worked.

What could you class as subliminal in adveritisng? Could you say bright colours happy people give out a msg as well? I also have done a class on advertising msgs, but am not so sure they actually work, or are utlised enough. Like sure make something sexy, but does that makes you want to buy it?

Love the ads btw! hehehe and ipod nipple! hahahahaha!

Don't you mean subliminable?

I believe advertising has far reaching effects on us that we are unaware of, subliminal or not.

As for the iPod nipple,
