Thursday Portrait.....





Back in the mid-50's, Coca-Cola did a little experiment with Subliminal Advertising. During a movie, every 55th frame or so , a message was flashed..Drink More Coke!
Coke sales for that movie performance shot though the roof...155%!! But remember, this was Circa 1955, Korean War, Brainwashing? The Government quickly stepped in and banned Subliminal Advertising.
But some unscrupulous Bloggers still use it...Or so I hear!!
Peace...!!!

Susan at Stony River said...

Whoa, dude—I 've got a sudden urge to do something, not sure what but I do think it has to do with writing something, and something about the number five, or wait, no I think it's fifty-five...

Does that count as my 55?

'Cause this comment is exactly that long.

Ok, now it is.

Nessa said...

I have an incredible urge to write fifty five words in this comment window and I just can not seem to figure out why that would be as I normally keep my comments rather short. I just can not seem to control myself. I almost feel as if mind control is working on my mind.

Mama Zen said...
