Stick a Santa Claus hat on anything, and boom! You’re magically transported to the North Pole. If only it worked like that, right? This toy company tried thinking out of the box last Christmas when they added a Santa Claus hat to the poop emoji.
They thought that taking the brown emoji and turning it green would give off a Christmas tree effect, but all it does is make us sick. This doesn’t put anyone in the holiday mood. However, what it does do is make some people hate the holidays, and especially Christmas even more. This is what we call unnecessary things to do to boost sales.
The Biking Grinch
The Grinch found that the best way to deliver presents on Christmas is to rent a motorbike. It's cost-efficient, and he won't have to bug Santa Claus to borrow one of his reindeer. That would be a pretty cool story, but these two just wanted to put on some costumes and have fun.
It's that time of year when everything is allowed; you can wear whatever you want and look like a total freak, and no one will say anything. It's great fun for the kids to see when traveling in the car on their way to Christmas dinner, and who doesn't love making the children happy?
Santa's Little Helper
This delightful toy was placed at a shopping center's Santa's Elf workshop display. We admit we don't really know what Santa's elves look like — but we're sure it's not this. Someone took a baby doll, ripped her head off, and attached her to a stuffed animal's body. We're not sure that that's what the spirit of Christmas is all about.
To add insult to injury, whoever made this horrible toy also painted the doll's face an almost toxic shade of yellow. Now we mustn't forget that in some countries some misfortunate children don't have all the luxuries we do and may have to settle for Christmas presents like this.
The Christmas Tree
After seeing this picture, you lose the right to complain about the size of your Christmas tree, the quality of your presents, and the whole event of Christmas in your household. Being in the south half of planet Earth, the seasons are reversed.
This means that in Australia, Christmas is celebrated on the 25th of December like in the rest of the world; however, this falls in the summertime, when it can get scorchingly hot. Leave behind the Christmas trees and bring out the fans. Put away the warm Sangaria and get ready for some icy mojitos.
Besides being a Christmas favorite, the Grinch is also one of our favorite characters we grew up on. This advert was done in incredibly bad taste, and we're sorry to see the Grinch's portrait used like this! In real life, the Grinch would never agree to have his face used in adverts like this to promote some corporation's greedy agenda!
The Grinch may be grouchy, but he does have standards and prides himself on being anti-establishment... This is what can be called a really bad advertisement or really bad copywriting. We find it hard to believe this will make more people buy pistachios over the holiday season.
