Personally, I think that subliminal messages are just for fun, to see who can spot them. Most of it is just over-thought though. The more you think about it, the more you start to see them everywhere. A lot of it is probably just coincidence…..or is it?
On January 8th, 1999, Disney announced a recall of the home video version of their 1977 animated feature “The Rescuers” because it contained an “objectionable background image.” Approximately 38 minutes into the film, as rodent heroes Bianca and Bernard fly through the city in a sardine box, the photographic image of a topless woman can be seen at the windo of a building in the background.
This poster was released in the mid 80’s and prompted a total recall of all posters because the picture painted in ice-cubes at the bottom right corner - a woman performing an act. The graphic artist who designed the picture put this in as a joke, and it went through unnoticed until someone spotted it on the back of a Coke truck. The artist lost his job and was sued, and all promotional material had to be recalled and destroyed. Very rare and hard to get hold of - released in South Austrailia in the mid 80’s.
First was the “Death’s Head Hawkmoth” …. then came the Dali Portrait … then some Art Director for the movie company put the two ideas together on the moth on the movie poster.
Most people will see the skull on the movie poster. Most people will NOT see that the skull is made up of figures of women.
This is a hilarious example of what happens when you design a logo without checking it afterwards or asking a second opinion. About half of all people will first see a naked woman’s torso here. I didn’t even know there was also a dancing couple until I read the title of the ad.
This ad appeared in the British Yellow Pages. The title of course already double in itself. But if you turn the picture upside down and cover part of it (the girls face and martini glass), you can see a young girl fingering herself.
See a hidden subliminal message in the light’s of the building’s?
