Let’s face it, everything on the market really shouldn’t be there. Some things serve no purpose or are so “out there” that they resemble the likes of the Lunar Unicycle in our retro future post. Over the years, there have been products that we think maybe the inventors should have just kept to themselves. Here are 15 ads for products that never should have been invented.
1.Now Hear This!
There’s nothing like taking cold headphones to bed – I mean, it’s such a problem! LMFAO. Since when are Hear Muffs solving a legitimate problem? On the other hand, we dig his mustache. Gotta look at the positive side, as mom always told us.
2.A Snow Day
Now comes the creepy. Giving cocaine to kids in the form of toothache drops might just be… Oh who are we kidding, it’s so wrong it actually makes us grind our teeth! Only 15 cents for the drops, back in 1885, what a deal (call the local dealer if you want more of them).
3.Hot to Trot
4.Eggs At Their Finest
Which came first, the chicken or the egg? That’s one question to ask. Another Q&A session could involve asking why anyone wants to cube an egg! Do you agree that this product should never have been invented?
5.When You’re Hungry
6.Drunk by 9am
8.Work Out… Your Spine
Is it just me or do more people want their faces, rather than their spines, to be young? It’s not like we’d go up to someone and say, “Your spine looks so young!” It’s almost as awkward as the people who you’ll find in a CrossFit gym.
15.Totally Makes Sense.
People used to pay money for these products. Yes. Is it just us or are these vintage ads for products that never should have happened? If you come across any of the inventors, ask them what their motivation was. We would like to say there aren’t any silly, pointless products on the market today but, well, that would be a silly and pointless statement to make, now wouldn’t it?
