Does this count as a subliminal message?

Does a commercial of Arby’s with a bunch of pictures of there food count as a subliminal message?


  1. If the pics of food are obvious and direct, then it is not a subliminal message. But if, for example, a commercial for a movie theatre had images of food (popcorn, candy, soft drinks) embedded within the commercial that were so quickly flashed on the screen that the human eye could not separate them from the main images, then that would be subliminal.

  2. no, a subliminal message is one you get, but don’t know why or how you get it. A great book about this is Subliminal Seduction, (author?) or The Hidden Persuaders by Vance Packard.
