Despite absolutely no credible evidence that subliminal advertising is effective or exists, it’s a popular belief that it does exist and is effective. (Please note – This doesn’t mean that sex doesn’t sell. It’s just not subliminal.) Here are a few examples of claims of subliminal advertising:
- The Official Subliminal Messaging Board
- MainStreet – The Craziest Subliminal Ads
Note that this list contains the James Vicary popcorn message study that was a complete fabrication.
And finally, Saturday Night Live’s Mr. Subliminal.
