Autosport: Ferrari denies subliminal Marlboro livery (http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/83194)

Please note that the weird graphic on the side of the Ferrari, you know, the one where you'd normally put the name of your primary sponsor, is not a subliminal Marlboro ad. And the fact that the team name is SCUDERIA FERRARI MARLBORO doesn't mean anything, either. I mean, just compare the current paint job to the old one to see how ridiculous this complaint is.

Yeah, that is a pretty ridiculous claim. I'm no Ferrari fan but claiming "subliminal messages" is pretty absurd.

The last thing I would of thought of was Marlbro by looking at that but whatever people have to much time on their hands I guess.

WTF this is like a 3 year old event. They haven't been able to have cig adds since at least 2007.

The barcode looks like one of those illusions where hidden text can be seen when you look at it from a steep angle.

Ferrari still claims that it is not a subliminal Marlboro ad, which would be ridiculous, of course, but have removed it anyway, before an investigation is launched. Barcode-gate anyone?
