Cracked’s 10 most laughably misleading ads

Cracked’s compilation of the 10 Most Laughably Misleading Ads continues the site’s tradition of being right on the money, as they rightfully point out how stupid “time-saving” products make the average American look. Lazy, too. Magnetic pens (promoted in the video above) were designed for people too sedentary to reach under the chair and retrieve one. (The ad also suffers from repeated, not-so-subtle boob shots.) And don’t even get me started on the Handy Peel, whose interactions with carrots remind me a little too much of the Octodog (click “How Does It Work?”). I won’t ruin the rest of this list for you, but I’ll leave saying that the Tiddy Bear both is and isn’t what it sounds like.
