Well, since it looks like nobody’s minding the store right now, let’s turn this into a real question.
Before General Questions
Thread i.d. 63859
An amendment, in the form of a replacement:
Strike out all in italics and replace with the following:
*I sure was tonight. I think about these things a lot–it’s sort of a hobby of mine. However, tonight was really strange. I was thinking about nothing in particular, and then when I got in line, well, all of a sudden I was ear deep in fantasy goodness.
Then I noticed the magazine rack. This month’s edition of Safeway’s own magazine has a big picture of a juicy ham, I think, carefully sliced partway through and delicately… spread open. The headline?
“The Easiest Entree.”
I would have bought the magazine just for the cover, but I fear what I might do with it. Keep your eyes peeled and your jaws locked if you happen to be shopping at the Big S this month.
Sorry, this is the best picture I can find. It’s on the far right of the page.*
**The general question is:
I have seen recent examples of what I believe to be subliminal advertising of a particularly sexual nature. Has sexual subliminal advertising been proven to increase sales of products? Are there any marketing studies I might find which offer suggestions as to what sort of subliminal advertising the average buyer responds? Can anyone offer me anecdotal evidence of abrupt changes in sales as a result of subliminal advertising or subliminally presented goods?
Thank you in advance for your answers, and your patience. And Tequila, I regret to say that I have not yet had the opportunity to test that special device.**
