Derren Brown - Subliminal Advertising

If you are anything like the average person, you probably think you go about your life making free choices based purely on the freedom of your own will and your rationality. The sad truth, however, is that your actions are influenced and controlled by forces all around you, of which you are probably not even aware.

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing people he did not exist (I'm paraphrasing The Usual Suspects). Similarly, the greatest trick marketers pull is convincing you that you ought to exercise your freedom and individuality by buying their superfluous and crappy products, just like every other unique automaton. Oh yeah, I'm talking about you, Star-schmucks!

The following short shows Derren Brown using subliminal advertising techniques on experts of subliminal advertising to their great shame and our great delight. Fight fire with fire! :)

Now, how many things have you bought because you were brainwashed? You have no idea, do you?
