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.
Deck the Halls
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 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.
We don't really know if these people are each other's family or if they are just really close friends, but either way, this is one of the sweetest 'welcome home' signs we've ever laid eyes on. And props to them for going with such hilarious pictures. The only thing that beats going home for Christmas is going home to people holding up a sign like this. Fantastic job, guys!
They could have chosen maybe more flattering photos (we do understand that these were chosen deliberately), but again, what could say "I Love You" in a more funny, modern, sophisticated, and in-your-face way?
Thanks for the... Wait, What Is It?
Faking being happy with a bad Christmas present is an experience that everyone seems to have had at some point. But what about getting a present that is so cryptic you literally don't know what it's for? After diving into the online hivemind, it turns out that this is a modular trivet.
You know, the thing you put under pots and pans to protect your table/countertop? You can play with the stringed jacks depending on the size and shape of your pot! Doesn't someone control the variety of goods Amazon has on offer? Isn't there a quality department that decides if something can be considered a Christmas present or not?
