Most of us have fallen victim to a company’s false advertisement at one point in our lives. Chances are, that drink won’t make you lose 20 pounds in two weeks, and that pill won’t increase your manhood by two inches. It just ain’t happenin. Nevertheless, companies will continue to make claims of “Results guaranteed!” because it’s “scientifically proven” and fool people over time and time again.
To prevent you from making those mistakes, consumers on Reddit got together to reveal which companies are definitely guilty of false advertising.
Head-On was actually legally forced to stop advertising their product as having any effect on you whatsoever.
Initially it was advertised as a topical headache relief, but when they discovered the product was nothing but paraffin wax with a little menthol in it, the company was forced to remove any mention of what the product is supposed to do. That’s why the ads became “head on, apply directly to the forehead” and nothing else. (MeatofaLegJoint)
It’s like how Chips Ahoy aren’t filled with actual ahoys any more. (Grifter42)
Those PH water bottles that people have had a fad over lately, seriously not only is that absolute garbage, i even ph tested a bottle in chem lab at school to prove a point to someone, PH read 7.0 otherwise called neutral! not the “9.5PH” they so proudly advertise (Dothackver2)
Why the fuck would anyone want to drink 9.5 pH water? (Xalteox)
Because they’re basic AF (Takagi)
All those game ads on Facebook that use footage from other games in the video (Questtodream)
The Evony ads were still going around when I turned on my ad blocker. You know, the ones that always had boobs on them.
I heard the game described to be “as sexy as tetris”, but that statement was retracted when I pointed out even in tetris you can get a long piece in a tight slot for satisfying results. (StefanL88)
