Subliminal advertising, the fun idea that advertisers secretly embed images of breasts, skulls (R)→
and other stimulating stuff in ads, has be kicking around since the 1950s (Wiki).
Suntory is gone “bliminal” in their advertising seduction.
Rather than merely trying to sneak provocative images into the photos of their ice cubes, Suntory is using a computer-guided milling robot to create ice mermaids in your whisky as explained the video below and on their official website “3D on the Rocks” (http://3drocks.jp/).
