Subliminal – Derren Brown

Derren Brown is controversial illusionist, hypnotist and the presenter of Mind Control on BBC.  He has come up with the most interesting shows illustrating how many techniques can be used to communicate and change people’s minds on the subliminal level without telling them directly anything.  I have always been a firm believer in things like this and NLP.
This video is probably one of the most interesting ones because he tricks two people in advertising who probably make a living creating ads that speak to the public subliminally. It makes you think about the amount of subliminal messages we are bombarded with every day and just how little control we have over them.

      i remember in a campaign a couple of years back about advertisment and subliminal effects they had the McDonald’s sign and written next to it “You’d even eat your own shit if our marketing was good enough” Fa yes deffinetly we are vistims of subliminal effects in advertisment and marketing materials. God bless rational behavior 😀
