Published 3 years ago

If you’ve ever opened a bag of chips only to find out that over half of it is filled with air, you know how deceptive packaging can be. However, while there’s a reason why there’s so much air in your chips (it’s there to protect them from breaking), some packaging designers create intentionally misleading packaging to trick customers. And it’s absolutely infuriating.

From simply useless to outright dangerous, check out a collection of packaging designs that left people disappointed in the gallery below! And if you want more, see our previous posts here and here.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
