The stuff I dislike is when they try and sell you something based upon something that is a reason NOT to buy,
Bleedin' Coco Pops. "So Chocolatey* they turn the milk brown" or the reality "we cannot get the chocolate to stick on the rice crispies properly.
"Vax - Its Orange" - who wants a bloody bright orange vacuum cleaner? Madness
Another thing that I find dumb is Gillette razors. They bought out the Mach 3, with 3 blades, which were meant to be sooo much better, but now have an advert for the new 5
blade razor, where they effectively point out that the days of 3 blade razors were completely shit. Wangers.
"There's no better way to fly" Lufthansa
Yes there is: Singapore Airlines.
Well, flying Raffles class is top drawer, yes, but there is one seriously large flaw with Singpaore Airlines. Their hub is Singapore, meaning you have to go to Singapore. Nasty.
