Are You Being Manipulated By Subliminal Ads?

Subliminal Ad #4: Massad

Okay, this isn't so much of a subliminal ad...  But the outcome produces a something of a subliminal ad.

Well... that's just plain naughty.

Subliminal Ad #6: George Bush 2000 Election Campaign

The answer is below.*

Subliminal Ad #7: Prevention of Alcohol Addiction Campaign

I had a few of you "bold" readers named "Anonymous" criticize me for my article Can You Spot the Weenie?  10 Subtle Ads Crave Your Attention.  This one's for you.

Have you had any subliminal ad experiences?  Feel free to share them below!

*Note the use of the word "RATS" as it merges with "DEMOCRATS" towards the end of the commercial.  It lingers a fraction of a second longer than any of the other words...
