As you read this, a sinister and secret organization is working night and day and spending untold millions to invade and control your mind.  Is it the world of the CIA?  The FBI?  The Republican Party?  No... this is the work of companies and their advertising departments.

Subliminal Advertisements have been around for years and use little tricks such as embedding images and words into pictures to grab your attention and subconsciously imprint their product into your mind.  In this gallery, we're going to take a look at some of the more bold and - dare we say - unethical uses of this mode of mind control.

Companies have said for years that subliminal advertising doesn't exist.  If that's the case, we hope that you enjoy these nonexistent examples.

One of the gaudiest and famous examples of subliminal advertising of all time!
