Actually learned about subliminal message effectiveness in psych class.

The belief that subliminal messaging works stemmed from a theater owner in the 1950s claiming that concession stand sales increased by 50% when he placed a message in a movie saying to purchase concession stand items.

A few years later, he confessed to completely fabricating the story.

Since then, thousands of tests have proven that subliminal messages do NOT work or they are only effective on a very small portion of the viewers/audience.
