They Call It Packaging

Great post over at Crackunit.

He's found a German site that shows photos of 100 product packs... alongside shots of what the food inside actually looks like.



Feel the shame. Feel the guilt.

Then get back to writing some adverts.

This is why I had my Penis removed, it looked good and robust hidden away, but when I got it out it always disappointed.
It’s looking a bit yellow today; I think the preservative in the jar might be going off. I did leave it in the window all day yesterday, so maybe the sun has got to it.

Maybe I should consider putting it in the fridge for a bit.

Thank god for my new smiling vagina.

Let's be honest, though: this is quite a weak post (nicked off someone else and about german packaging).

Why don't you tell us what's going on with the new Levi's TV ads? That's what we pay you for.

@ Anonymous: The pkging may be German but the story is universal. Thanks, Scamp for another revelatory post.

On the website half of the products actually look quite similar.

It reminds me of that bit in the film "Falling Down" where Michael Douglas goes into that fast food chain to get a breakfast burger, but it all goes wrong...
