Mensagem:  I glanced this sentence on a billboard ad while I was going past it and I mentally thought it meant "VOCÊ COMO EU, i.e., VC IGUAL A MIM". That was the very first thing that crossed my mind.

But then later on (second time I drove past) I wondered why I hadn´t read it, maybe, in a more logical meaningful expected way, which is, "VOCÊ GOSTA DE MIM"...

Tell me, what did you think FIRST when you read the post before seeing my explanation? Which way do you undersdand it: the former or the latter?
Is there actually such ambiguity?

Thanks, folks.
