A single frame out of the show Iron Chef America was replaced with a still advertising frame of the sponsor of the show for this night; McDonald's. If it was it enough that McDonald's had several commercials during this show and also put their logo on the judges scores when they came up (as you will see in the video) they had to take it as far as inject subliminal marketing into the show itself. This video show the real time view of it twice as well as the view when my DVR is set to play it back in 1/15 speed slow motion. And we all thought we were safe from advertising on TV with the invention of the DVR. I actually rewound this 4 times with my wife and she didn't catch it till the 4th time. That makes you wonder how much you have been marketed to without knowing it'; doesn't it? I am all for marketing and advertising it if is deliberate and you can make an assessment of the product afterwards but don't go this low McDonald's. It just makes you look worse than you already are after movies like Super Size Me, etc.
