Worst Product You've Seen

 Pages 1 2 NEXT
 

Once in a while, we see a product on the market that makes us go "Who on this Earth and in every other version of it buy this thing?"

So Escapists, what product makes you think that?

For me, Kidz Bop CD's. It's a bunch of pre-pubs singing pop songs that you could easily get online or anywhere in general. It's so bad, I ripped my ears off and hid them.

Here's one of their crimes against humanity:

Oh it gets better with Kidz Bop:

I personally found the irony epic when I first found out about this. We'll have to go all the way back to Kidz Bop #2. This isn't on Youtube so I wonder if someone actually figured out why it was a stupid idea.

A song by Uncle Kracker about him having an affair with a lady....yeah, let's throw that onto the kids CD!

As for my answer to your question; a shit ton of stuff on infomercials makes me question why anyone thought that was a good idea and why anyone would consider buying it...

Everyone's favorite "Top ____" style website Cracked explains it so much better than I could ever.

This bloody thing...shown on TV constantly and retailed for 40 pounds!


This thread is now over!

How about a game about dogs shitting?

What's hilarious is some of the songs that they've covered. Including 'Move Along' (a song about suicide), 'Heartless' (a Kanye West song) and 'My Humps' (children sing about ass and titties, how entertaining). Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go punch a child in the face for every sale that this company has made.

How times have changed. The first answer used to always be this:

I still think it wins.

I don't know about you guys, but I can't tell you how often I'll be sitting on the can and think to myself 'You know what would go great with this? Golf.'

You know what's even better?

They covered "Born This Way", which is about LGBT and sexuality. WAT

PsychicTaco115:
--snup--

Okay, this one annoyed me for different reasons. They cut out all the lines pertaining to being 'Born this Way', because they have references to the gayness. Rampant homophobia everywhere. If someone does a cover of a song, I can respect that, but only if the artist intends to respect the message of the original while giving their own meaning to the track. This is just garbage.

I don't recall the actual name of the product as its been purged from memory. But I do know who released it. Electronic Arts.

In reality I think anything sold in a tourist gift shop is terribly made and overpriced

Either they included the line "My lovely lady lumps" or you've got to tell me how it sounded.

Yeah, KidzBop is pretty terrible...

I'll have to go with this one though.

It's called Scrabble, guys. Couldn't believe when I saw that in a store one day.

Unlike some of their other songs, it doesn't seem to be on youtube. Fortunately for my ears.

When we were kids my grandma bought my sister and I Pacman: the board game. Joy was had.

This come to my mind-

Sure I can get wanting to stay warm but not wanting to raise the heating bill but seriously? You's just buying a fleese cloth shape blanket! While I would comment that it look stupid but yet again you're not wearing it for outside unless you got roommate/ family seeing you wearing that!
It also made worse that I know someone who hah bought one...

I have to add another one

This book is a waste of matter:

Book burnings, amirighgt?

It's not the pan itself, it's the fuckin' name:

This horrific thing.

I'm not going to kill a bunch of people, I just want to be beeeautiful! No.

Ooh! How about that age old problem of people looking over your shoulder at your porn? Never again.

Glass dildos.

Seriously, that can go so bad so easily, especially if you're tight.

Not posting pics or links or rather obvious reasons. :P

Funny thing I found with the Snuggie is that it serves no purpose that just putting on a sweater wouldn't. Speakign of which, electrically heated slippers. I got some from my work (Goodwill) for a laugh, but having to stay within 2 feet of a plug is kind of limiting.

Captcha : "I am captcha!" <- Dang, its becoming self aware, and ego maniacal

fapper plain:

The glass is tempered in such a way that it won't shatter like ordinary glass. I think any hole that is that tight deserves to have its own horror movie.

Note that it does not tell you WHY you would want to apply it to your forehead...

Unless I'm mistaken, there is a Christian version of Kid's Bop...I can't find anything on Youtube though so maybe that was just a horrible nightmare.

This just makes me sad and want to give up on life...I see one person actually buying this and after he sinks his hole-in-one, he just breaks down and doesn't stop crying. Seriously, I don't wanna play anymore.

I was going to talk about the Banana Holder but no. I found one better and here's Dad from Cow and Chicken to show this product off:

Fashion today may be going back to what it was in the 80's and 90's (or maybe I've just spent too much time in various Wal*Marts) but seriously early 20th Century...why? Just why!? What's the freaking point!?!

Cillit fucking Bang.

I swear, everytime I see one of their adverts it makes me want to hunt down Barry Scott.

"BANG, AND THE DIRT IS GONE".

Stop shouting you gormless twat.

A lot of good answers in here, I got some too but I'll just say the most recent one I've encountered.

I haven't really got anything to contribute to the first three lines of your post, however the last one is the most English thing I've seen written on this site since I joined.

Don't forget Pop the Pig.

Fixed those tags for you. And that is stupid.

Well, there's always this:

Although, to be honest, the dub kinda makes me want to buy it. X]

I think it was this toy I once saw on a school trip to Italy. It was called "Robot Super Might Active Tough" which was shortened to RSMAT on the box. A toy called, essentially, Arse Mat had us laughing already but there was tons of description about the things functions, such as "The hand really wiggles!" which was clearly supposed to make it sound brilliant but just failed. Had us in stitches for days with just how awful the thing looked and sounded. And its not like we were in some slum bazaar, this was in fairly posh Naples
