Being lured into watching an advertisement at free will looks like some sort of brain washing or at least like indoctrination to me or like a milder form of the so-called "sublimial messages" -

- the especially dangerous part is there that positive emotions are bonded this way with the produuct from the advertisement.

If there was a scientific study out there, I'd bet it would show that the reputation of the advertised product goes up the longer people watch advertisements for it before playing a game.

Especially the emotional reaction of "excitement" and of "anticipation" directed towards the game people want to play there - might be bonded with the advertised product.

I call this "emotional bonding".
