Hypnotizer in brain washing scare

Don't look into their eyes

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Hypnotizer is trying to brain wash innocent Net users by employing its streaming video software to send out subliminal messages.

This dangerous mind-bending behaviour came to light after a protest group calling itself Hypnotizer enAbles The Enemy (HATE) said it was to picket a trade show in London to publicise this abuse of power.

On its Web site it claims that Hypnotizer can put subliminal messages into so-called entertainment and information videos.

Yesterday, Steve Martel, VP Marketing & Strategic Development, told Reg he had witnessed the demonstrations outside the Streaming Media 2000 Conference at Earl's Court but would not comment further.

But last night a Hypnotizer's PR outfit, Harvard, said that the HATE site plus the picket were part of a "marketing initiative".

How can this be? Surely, a VP of Marketing Development & Strategy wouldn't deliberately mislead honest hacks about such a serious matter even when pressed? And surely, a humble PR wouldn't contradict what his client says?

Thankfully, Reg ain't fooled. Obviously, Harvard and Martel have already had their brains scrambled by these evil subversive subliminal messages. There can be no other rational explanation. Either that, or Hypnotizer and its jumped-up creatives need a reality slap.

So, just in case, here's a reality kick up the arse - avoid Hypnotizer because you just can't trust what they say. ®
