If you need further explanation, it uses a stimulating material that already produces a response and connects/relates it with another stimulus to hopefully produce the same response on its own later own by perhaps reminding you of the previous stimulus.

In layman's, they think if you see a sexy bikini-clad girl next to their burger/mobile app/etc., you're gonna think their burger is really awesome and remember how hot the girl is and feel inclined to eat the burger.

I thought this was already obvious. Do people really not get that? I little bit of critical thinking should answer the question by itself.

The question remains why is it legal? Shouldn't we protect weak minded people like we protect physically weak ones?

Yes, Cata, we all already know that. I don't know why Genghis thought we didn't.


Likely since you and Genghis are feeble-minded, disgusting, brainwashed U.S.-American uneducated swine.

@Kretoma: at least partly 'cause some research suggests it's not even all that effective as a form of classical conditioning. It'd be a futile endeavor to try and ban all forms of propaganda techniques in advertising, since that pretty much is advertising. Instead, it's probably more effective to just educate people about what's going on.

I thought you were dead, Genghis. Nice to see you again. Thanks for the neat little photo, too.
