Does anybody know if this type of advertising actually happens?
What is it called?
I am talking about the girl who makes hats, and the job she does where she go around 'suggesting' products.
Yes that does happen at the cinema's they put one frame of a nice juicy big mac in a movie, while there is a nice happy scene on. Then the next time you see a burger, you feel that nice happy feeling you did when you 'saw' it at the movies.

What's been annoying me lately is when the liquour distributors send scantily-clad implanted women to our favorite local bar (Manuel's Tavern on the corner of N Highland and North Avenue if you're ever in Atlanta).
We go to a very low-key neighborhood bar specifically to avoid "shiny happy people" like these.
It's very transparent when they only stop at tables that only have men there. If I'm out with three of my buddies, they'll come try to give us promo crap. If I'm with my wife or the two of us are with another couple, they stay away.
Even worse is the yuppie guy-groups who fawn over them and think that they're actually gonna pick up one of these women.

Anyways, at the introduction, Heineken hired people to visit bars and ask for Heineken and the person would leave if the bar in fact didn't serve Heineken. Bars were visited a few times over a couple of weeks. So by the time a sales person contacted the bar, the bar in question would be inclined to place an order.
Thought that was an old trick.

The real question is: why do school girls in Japan have so much money? I could spin theories, but I don't have any real answers.
P.S. A book I remember about the ice cube pictures (among other things) was called _Subliminal Seduction_, and I remember thinking that the author was totally off his rocker. I think he spent a little too much time staring at makeup ads waiting for the word SEX to appear on a model's face.
