Australian Political Party's "jerk off" subliminal message
This Australian political ad made me chuckle. chuckle
I don't follow Australian politics so I don't know if this is a lying negative campaign message like we get from Obama but it is interesting how they put in the "subliminal" message of "HENDO IS A JERK OFF GET RID OF HIM"


Do you want to flee the U.S.’s grindingly negative campaign ads? Just make sure you don’t head for Australia. In a recent TV spot, the Country Liberal Party in the land of Oz’s Northern Territory turned to rude subliminal messaging to discredit Paul Henderson, the Territory’s chief minister and a member of the rival Labor Party.


As coded messages go, this one is pretty unsophisticated. In the ad, an optometrist’s eye chart appears—but instead of the traditional jumble of letters and numbers, it spells out HENDO IS A JERK OFF GET RID OF HIM. Tabling my surprise at seeing “jerk off” used as a noun for the first time since seventh grade (couldn’t they have thrown in a hyphen?), I’m actually not even sure the dig counts as subliminal. According to psychologist Vance Packard, a subliminal stimulus affects only the unconscious mind, yet this spot likely hits viewers above the threshold of awareness. Perhaps it’s more of an Easter egg.
