  • The Hitler Teapot

    You would think someone would have noticed the uncanny resemblance before<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/27/kettle-hitler-jc-penney_n_3343248.html" target="_blank"> plastering this photograph on an interstate in California</a>.

    No <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/25/keep-calm-and-rape-shirt_n_3492411.html" target="_blank">commentary </a> needed here.

  • Oreo Barbie

    Cross marketing can sometimes work, but definitely not when a product takes its name from a <a href="http://theweek.com/article/slide/232280/drag-queen-barbie-and-9-other-controversial-barbies#4" target="_blank">derogatory term for a black person</a>.

Nothing at all!

    Mocking <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/18/urban-outfitters-prescription-drugs_n_3460909.html" target="_blank">prescription drug abuse </a> and addiction probably isn't the best sales tactic, especially <a href="http://www.drugfree.org/join-together/advocacy/stop-urban-outfitters-from-selling-products-that-promote-prescription-drug-abuse" target="_blank">when you're marketing to teens</a>.

  • Fat Girl Six Pack

    Nothing like <a href="http://www.sephora.com/fatgirlsixpack-P374801" target="_blank">name-calling </a> your target audience.

  • Baby Wee Wee

    Did that baby really <a href="http://www.videogum.com/25941/theres_an_even_worse_baby_wee/commercials/" target="_blank">just do what we think it did</a>?
