Some advertizing images make me uncomfortable

I don’t know why, but it does. Does anyone else get uncomfortable by specific images?

More images that make me uncomfortable (usually closeup shots of food, that usually looks fake or too good to be true or fingers)

I don't mind the apples and muffins but the rest are bad. I try to ignore them. Ads in general are so bad these days.

Things like a close-up selfie that's been blurred out to protect the person's identity. Blurred images make me uncomfortable. Though admittedly, in some cases, the actual image would make me much more uncomfortable than the blurred one.

I'm more confused by the first image than anything. What does tying a thread in a not on your finger have to do with downloading an app? Were they just going with weird imagery to grab attention?

Also there are images that make me uncomfortable of course. Nothing here though. The food just looks so fake and stereotypically perfect but I think almost all places that sell any kind of food do that.

I’ve been told that all instances of food pictured are real and not fake.

Tying a string around one's finger is a common memory/reminder tactic, so it is often used symbolically for "Remember this..."

For sure, skeeved out by lots of images. Usually it’s when I can imagine the sensory element of it. For example the peaches picture makes my fingers tingle and curl up, and I hate it. The feeling of a fresh peach in my hand is abhorrent.

I am perturbed by close-up pictures of eyeballs, and anything to do with the mouth. Bare feet on the ground, ick. And people wearing certain fabrics (like velvet). It’s all because these images make me feel something physically on my body and I don’t like it.

and it doesn't work. The string is uncomfortable and I forget why I put it there. Yes I tried it. Three times to make sure.

And why not just make a list for the store? Isn't that more standard?

I don't use that one, but I have similar hacks, like leaving my keys next to my phone so I will remember to bring my phone with me...

I use an adaptation of this one by switching the rings on my fingers. My rings always go on the same fingers, so they become unnoticeable. But if I need to remember something, I will put one of my rings on an uncomfortable, unfamiliar finger. This keeps grabbing my attention and reminds me to do the thing.

Oh, that would work better for me. Something that is just ... not quite right ... instead of a whole new uncomfortable thing.
.
but I don't wear jewelry, I tried wearing my wedding ring for 3 years and just said no more. My wife said "oh thank goodness" and took hers off :)
.
(edit) actually I bought 3 wedding rings. The first two were made of stone, hematite, because the feel of it is much easier to wear than metal. Little did I know they break easily. So the last one was platinum. I think I still have it somewhere.
