Disappointing Purchases People Made After Being Misled By Ads

We've all been woo'd by a good commercial at some point in our lives. Especially when you're a kid, Nerf really makes it look like having a sweet blaster will make you the coolest kid on the street. We've all gone crazy at some point for those ads for laser tag games and frozen drink makers, and many of us never learn and keep making stupid purchases far into our adult years. That said, this isn't always our fault, sometimes products are straight up misleading and manipulative.

Nostalgia Fuel from The 90s

There are two things that make us wish we could go back in time, straight to the 90s. The first one is the general annoyance of adult life and all the complete BS you have to deal with in the working world. The second is sweet, sweet 90s nostalgia. And an added third I guess would be that we could bet on Super Bowl winners.

Did you know there were slinky tricks? Neither did we. Apparently this guy is pretty good at them. I mean, if it's your job to stand at a booth that sells slinkies all day, you probably get good at slinkies. The camera can hardly even catch this skill, my god.

Cat Owner Gets Their Cat An Identical Stuff Animal And The Cat Freaks Out

When this cat owner won a stuffed animal toy in a raffle at work, they thought it'd be a good idea to bring home the toy to their cat. The big catch here is that the toy looked identical to the cat, which resulted in the cat freaking out. It's just like if you've ever seen a cat catch their reflection in the mirror, and how they lose it; but even more terrifying with a plushy stuff animal that looks like them.
