Summary: With eye-opening footage, expert interviews, and many humorous anecdotes, this provocative program explores the alleged use of subliminal messages in advertising, music, film, politics, and the military. Documentarian Jeff Warrick leads viewers through the subconscious mind while examining the history, scientific validity, and potential effects of such techniques on society. From hidden sexual imagery in Disney cartoons and satanic messages in rock music to the now-discredited experiment where "Drink Coca-Cola" was flashed between frames at a cinema, Warrick challenges his audience to question whether subliminal programming is an urban legend, or if these manipulative tactics could actually alter human behavior.
