Does Food Network Use Subliminal Advertising?

Holy cannoli batman!
You have to check this youtube video out. According to this clip, there is a McDonald's "I'm lovin' it" ad right in the middle of an Iron Chef episode. This guy goes frame by frame and for a split second, there it is, the signature Golden Arches.

So tell me, is this for real?

If it's real, which I can't tell, it was an accident.

Also could have been the network accidentally cutting to commercial too soon (especially since he said its at the end of the show). But hey, anything is possible. ~M~

even if this is real, i don't think it would affect iron chef viewers since they are clearly interested in culinary delights far more intricate than a big mac!

Uh...I think McDonald's can definitely afford some proper advertising and if they did want to send subliminal messages, why through Iron Chef? Doesn't make sense to me.

It seems fake to me, the way the guy was speaking...but also, i'm a psych major, and sublimminal messaging like this does not work!! so even if they use it...iron chef is way more likely to make you crave creative and tasty food than greasy mcdonalds
