Okay, I'll let you guys know right off, this is fake. But the day before April 1st (this date is significant), I stumbled across a web commercial for Popular Mouthwash Brand. Bacon-flavored mouthwash "For breath that sizzles
It turns out that it was an April Fool's Day prank that was put up a day or two before the actual day (I think), so that while a few FB friends suspected
, the fact that it wasn't advertised on the actual day gave it some possible credibility. So, it was a joke. Frankly, I don't know if I'm disappointed or relieved. I would have bought it either as a gag gift or just so that I could say, "Yeah, I tried it, it's bad.". It really sounded gross, but the latent kid in me was like, "Hmm...". Apparently, other people wanted to buy it too, because I heard about people going to the store and getting upset when they were either told the product didn't exist or that it had been a prank.
I really feel sorry for the employees who had to field those questions and the possible customer tantrums, but the whole thing got me thinking about other ridiculous products out there.
Bacon-flavored mouthwash...Perhaps the world just isn't ready!
