Skip to comments.How to copy a tv commercial containing subliminal messaging used to re-elect O

In 1974 the FCC adopted guidelines stating that although subliminal advertising might not be effective, they still felt it was a deceptive practice. If any broadcaster of TV or Radio signals uses a subliminal message they are subject to fines from the FCC.
On Sunday, 1 April 2012, during the Fox News program John Stossel - Stupid in America an advertisment was played for a medicine manufactured by Pfizer called CHANTIX ( varenicline ) tablets. At the beginning of the ad a female provides a positive testimonial about the anti-smoking product followed by the narrator's voice his first two words are ....Obama support..... He then proceeds to describe the medicines positive and negative potentials.
I did a double take, and played the ad again ( Direct TV ), and sure enough the guy says "....Obama support....", whereupon I recorded the program at 12:37p PST.
I don’t hear “Obama” I hear, “Along with”. This strikes me as lawyer-ese hedging where they fear stating something definite exposes them to potential false-advertising claims. So they insert some “cover our butt” weasel language as civil liabilty risk management.
The nebulously phrased “Along with support” gives the company a broad range of definitions that means everything and nothing, depending on if the lawyer is arguing on behalf of, or against, the pharma co.
So I can certainly take issue with the snake-oil pitch they are making, but I doubt very seriously it has anything at all to do with Obama.
I have listened 3 times and I hear “OK lets go”, then the woman begins to speak.
Along with support.... You might someday stop pointing your camcorder at your TV and posting it on Youtube. What’s wrong with people?
listen to it yourself. I’m not paranoid.
Either way, if it just sounds like itmission accomplished. IMO
The leftist are not just setting on their butts and taking their chances.
I’m convinced there are hundreds of little people/groups, maybe more,
PAID vermin to come up with anything to get ‘it’ re-elected.
The author kept trying to convince the reader there were hidden images in advertising manipulating our brains. I bought the book because I believed it was happening, but after reading the book, realized it was the author who was seeing things that didn't exist.
He had print ads in the book and pointed out the hidden images within by using a "before and after". It was like finding images in clouds. It was nonsense.
And last time I checked, the effectiveness of "subliminal advertising" (hidden messages) is still unproven.
“It says Along with support Chantix has proven.....
I was listening to the radio and heard this:
“Newt technologies working together to provide green energy solutions.”
OMG Newt Gingrich is Brain washing people!!!!
I had to read some books like that for a college English class. It was one of the easiest A’s I earned...just write a bunch of BS!
Years ago, I was told, the military looked into subliminal messaging as a means of rapid instruction during crisis situations—i.e. the ultimate in “crash training”. Their conclusion was that “subliminal messages” were a bunch of hokum...that if a message is too quick or indistinct for the conscious mind to register it, the mind simply rejects it.
I thought it said “fnord”.
Meanwhile back in reality every experiment with subliminal messages shows them to be not very effective and not worth the trouble.
Just hire Mr. Subliminal.
That is a beautiful post, and you’re right. Time for me to send a donation!
So-called “subliminal” messages don’t work. Subliminal means below threshold (of perception), if you hear it or see it, it’s not below threshold (not subliminal). But if the message is truly subliminal, then you do not perceive it.
Chantix and Obama - both give you vivid nightmares.
I'd post the audio to FR from the disc I used to copy the tv ad spot, but I don't know how to do that.
