Holden Using Subliminal Advertising?

Falcon in October, sales went from 35.7% to 28.6%?
Despite Ford getting 3 Best Car Awards.
Is Holden using subliminal advertising ?
ie when a Holden advert is on tv, a subliminal ad saying Buy Holden, is flashed on the screen. Only registered by the sub-conscious.
This is the only way I can see Holden sales being so dominant and Fords not.

Subliminal Advertising is highly illegal. The Government could bitch slap General Motors - Holden if they were using such tactics. Its not something they would willingly risk.

Steffo...remember the 11th commandment ? Thou Shalt Not Get Caught.

How else do you explain people buying Holden cars in record numbers, when Ford has the better cars? What makes people buy Holdens when Ford is the better car??? It smells.

Re: Holden Using Subliminal Advertising?

I would think removing the taxi pack would have had a serious impact on sales.

Now the proud owner of an AU xr8 220... OHHH YeAh

Re: Holden Using Subliminal Advertising?

Subliminal advertising does not work. It is a myth. The study that proposed it has never been duplicated.

However, most countries have felt a need to ban it anyway! Gotta love law makers ~
