Weird, Stupid and Funny Signs and Ads

Signs, advertisements and billboards are a weird game. Every joke advertisement is a bit of a risk. Some are dumber than others. Sometimes a sign's pun game is simply too strong. Some advertising fails, like the magazine layout fails are total accidents. Sometimes signs are just straight up scary.

Manipulative Ads, Products and Services Designed by Jerks

We like to think there's some set of rigid standards that applies to all products and advertising, but the reality is that most companies will just do whatever they can get away with. That leads to some devious and horrible products designed to manipulate people. Seriously, a lot of products are designed by jerks.

Devious and Horrible Products and Ads Designed to Manipulate People

Ideally, the buyer/seller relationship should be one where upfront sellers provide a valuable product or service to people who are happy to pay for it. This is often not the case. In reality it can be a one-sided war between companies and consumers, with companies trying every underhanded tactic they can come up with to inconvenience, scare and manipulate their own customers into overpaying for horrible products. Seriously, these products and ads were designed by jerks.

Is this good or bad marketing? Does anyone even know anymore? On the one hand, it's an utterly ridiculous slogan. On the other hand, it sure seems to be getting the word out.

The 90s were a strange time. In this case, a 1998 pizza ad that featured the former leader of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev. This article on the Gorbachev Pizza Hut Adstates that he needed the money for a foundation, and it was the only high profile commercial offer he took.

Deceptive and Terrible Products and Services Designed By Jerks

The world is rife with manipulative and awful products and ads, and it's worth it to point them out when they're clearly unfair. There's wildly misleading labels, sandwiches made to look like they're twice as big as they actually are, and apps that make you pay money to delete them, just to name a few. It makes you start to think this stuff could be designed by the devil.

Manipulative and terrible products.

Manipulative and Awful Products and Ads Designed By Jerks

Soulless people will do anything to make a quick buck. They'll make uncomfortable standing airline seats to save on space, charge people to go to the bathroom, advertise a cheap product and charge a hundred dollars for shipping, literally hide fine print by making it the same color as the background, and do even more devious BS when they think of it. These are examples of deceptive and crappy products. Like seriously, these were designed by the devil.
