This is just freaky. The online ad, is literally trying to hypnotize us. There's also that one commercial as well, but let's focus on the online ad. They're literally trying to take our free will, with spirals, and the words "You will now switch" Here's some snapshots from it:

Pretty sure it's a joke/way to be comedic in their advertising. At least, hypnosis is not performed with spirals and voice modulators.

The fact that you made a thread about it/talk about it shows how effective it is.

Adbot! Oh wait...

I've seen worse in matters of aggressive ads, and this one has a certain touch of humour and self-derision. It's too obvious.

Besides, ads are constantly hurled against us, and affect our subconscious memory all the time. In that aspect, what free will? ;)

I've almost been hypnotized once, I, and a couple unnamed others, were extremely close to going under. That being said, as I was told by said hypnotized, it requires an amount of trust for the person doing it. It also, the way it was almost done to me, has nothing to do with spinning colors, that is just a fabrication made by who knows who.

You have an interesting point here. I've never noticed that.
On hypnosis: Hasn't happened to me [as far as I'm aware of], so I refuse to believe in it until I have proof.

No they aren't. Don't be so gullible, or the placebo effect will get you.

All commercials are trying to brainwash you and brainwashing is a far more affective and proven method to mind controll so be scared about every other commercial instead
