10 Laughably misleading ads

with one comment

Cracked has a great list of their 10 most laughably misleading ads. My favorites are:

Ike Berger’s Five Minute Power Shaper: The in-depth look at what it is like to use a gym is eclipsed only by the greatness of the old lady flailing about with her Power Shaper.

Pasta Pro: We all know how difficult it is to use a colander, but the impatient husband and kids in this ad will have none of your excuses.

Handy Peel: This starts out as a just a goofy ad for a pointless product until she starts working on more phallic vegetables. Remember, you can “enjoy corn with no strings attached.”
