While facebooking today, I noticed some groups(with the annoying surveys) titled the shocking Disney subliminal messages. So I used google to find out more about subliminal messages, what are they?
Subliminal messages are normally hidden in pictures, they can also be found in logos (http://www.graphicdesignblog.org/hidden-logos-in-graphic-designing/).They could appear in the form of a symbol, a picture, or a letters/word.
The case with Disney when people found subliminal messages in many of their movies (in form of the word ‘sex’), the people were simply making shapes and grass or smoke look like the word. I believe it could be explained with psychology: when someone says that something looks like something else, and show you the picture, you will never look at the pictures in the same way again.
Here’s one more page of subliminal messages: http://www.artistmike.com/Temp/SubliminalAd.html
