Destroy and expose advertisements for cash and prizes
This is a community partially for defusing and understanding the subliminal and insidious subtexts and subcommunications found in advertising, and partly for humor. Ok, mostly for humor. I created this community because I find it fun and amusing to take advertisements with very clearly implied subtextual communications and lampoon them by exposing their attempted hidden communications in exaggerated ways.

I don't care who joins, just don't suck at it. There's plenty of material out there. By making marketers' implicit or subtextual resource extraction ploys explicit, their undermining power is largely neutralized, as the communication channel is switched from the subconscious mind to the conscious. And it also makes me laugh.
