From misleading mangled popsicles to magical weight loss underpants,
we count 10 Hilarious Examples of False Advertising.
Yay, what's up, YouTube fans. How are we doing today?
They got some crazy new content for your face
So here we go!
10 - SpongeBob. The person that purchased this popsicle was probably
expecting a nice little ice cream version of everybody’s favourite sea character:
Spongebob Squarepants. • Instead what they got was a horrifying
corpse of a deranged zombie popsicle. It looks he has been impaled on that stick and his
eyes look like they’ve exploded. I wonder if the factory made him this way or he melted
into a corpse on the way to the store. The worst bit is that haunting toothy smile,
which says ‘hey kid I might just eat your soul while you sleep.'
I don't really have a good Spongebob square pants impression
But I think I got his laugh. Here, check this out: Heeee.
Oh man. That shit makes my head hurt. Man, isn't it annoying?
9 –BioSlim • What’s worse than false advertising
is when people are stupid enough to believe it in the first place.
• In 2001, Nivea brought out a cosmetic cream called BioSlim that claimed it could
literally make you lose weight by applying it to your skin regularly. I’m no scientist
but rubbing cream into your ass to lose weight seems about as sensible as putting peanut
butter in your coffee to cure baldness. • Nivea was forced to take the product off
the shelf and pay over $900,000 to the gullible people who bought the product.
8 – Pepperoni Pizza • Imagine walking into your local supermarket
with a hankering for some tasty meaty pizza only to come across this sorry excuse for a snack.
The label claims that it’s a pepperoni pizza -
but inside the packaging is one single lonely slice of pepperoni on an 8 inch pizza base.
I guess in all technicality they aren’t lying but it’s just not acceptable.
• What were the chefs even thinking? Is there some sort of critical worldwide pepperoni shortage
that I wasn’t aware of? How are you gonna be single slice pepperoni?
I heard of a single slice Pringle, but not a single slice pepperoni!
7 – Classmates Reunion • A website claiming to reunite old school friends was sued when it turned out that
they were promising to reunite people who didn’t even exist.
• Classmates.com told their users that if they paid for a membership upgrade
they would be reconnected with all their best buddies from their childhood. Turns out it was just a big lie,
and the website was forced to refund their disappointed customers’ money.
• It just goes to show that people are deceiving and the world is a terrible place sometimes
6 – Rice Krispies • Parents love to give their kids healthy snacks,
so why wouldn’t they believe that a bowl of cereal can drastically improve their immune systems.
In 2010, Kellogg’s started advertising
that their Rice Krispies cereal had the ability to improve the immune systems of kids and
give them 25% of their daily vitamin needs. The Federal Trade Commission said that this
claim was pretty ‘dubious’ and told Kellogg’s to knock it off.
• Next they’ll be telling us that the puffed rice does not in fact snap, crackle
OR pop. Liars.
5 - Pretzels • This machine has a notice that is telling some straight up fast food lies.
• One can see that the oven in question is jam-packed with freshly cooked, delicious looking pretzels.
Yet the deceiving sign on the front of the machine claims that they
are ‘Out of Pretzels’. If those bendy pastries are not pretzels, than what exactly are they?
Figments of my imagination? Or is the poster being more esoteric – is it suggesting
that it is on the outside of the machine, like out of *range* of pretzels.
• Either way, ‘Sorry for the inconvenience’ is just not good enough.
I want my damned pretzel.
4 – Easter Pope • Nothing makes me angrier than when I buy a chocolate resembling the Pope,
only to find dairy-based lies under the wrapper. • The company that produced this chocolate treat
must’ve thought they were being pretty clever when they used their leftover Easter bunny designs
to sell their new season Pope-themed chocolates.
Not that I'm much of a fan chocolate anyways
3 – Berry Loaf • Here’s another example of a company
giving absolutely zero fucks about what you want.
• This bakery is offering a ‘berry loaf’ which seems to be just that - a loaf of bread
with one berry. How generous of them to create such a flavour-filled treat. The advertisement
next to it clearly promises at least a dozen. • Maybe the pizza chef and this baker are
the same guy, ruining people’s lives one shitty baked good at a time.
2 – Baby Can Read • Have you ever seen a two-year old reading a novel?
Or even reading anything for that matter? No. It’s because they can’t.
A company that promised it could teach kids to read whole books before the age of 3
was sued and forced to take its products off the market in account of flagrant false advertising.
The program was called, ‘Your Baby Can Read!’, but they just didn’t mention that
no baby has ever read anything in the history of babies.
Not only are most babies not geniuses, they don’t even understand how to not shit their own pants.
Come on, y'all. Babysteps, babysteps. You gotta go one step a time.
1 – Caffeine Pants • It seems that some people will try anything to lose weight, except for you know,
eating healthy and exercising. A couple of companies recently developed
caffeine-infused undergarments that allegedly advertised they could make you lose weight
by somehow magically dissappearing your fat cells. I don’t know whether it’s sadder
that someone actually made these – or that people thought coffee in your underpants was
a legitimately good idea. • There are no shortcuts to weight loss and good health.
Just good old fashioned sweating, self-control and emotional support.
I mean I managed to lose over 50 pounds in 3 months.
Which is a little too fast but it's possible!
You just gotta believe in yourself!
Exercise! Do it! You gotta believe in your dreams!
I've never really encountered any kind of false advertising.
Moreso I've encountered some pretty misleading ones.
One being from McDonald's words said: Now serving white meat!
And in my head I was like: What kind of meat were you serving before?
What about you guys? What's something really misleading that you've seen before?
Much love and appreciation guys. Take care. Peace
