    Haha, this was a good one! The lawsuit against Smart Water for not making him smart is hilarious. Makes me wonder what would happen if everyone started suing based on product names. Could you imagine the class action against "Forever 21" by people who didn't remain 21 forever?
    The importance of branding and product names can't be overstated, especially in today's digitally dominated landscape.
    While we're joking here, it's a good reminder for companies to be careful with their branding and advertising claims.

    I can't even remember the make of car in the recent TV commercial, travelling at speed along an empty road (as they all are).
    Just the strap-line, to the effect, This is a concept model, not available for sale."

    MG, I loved it! I've seen some pretty funny warning labels. The one that I always think of said something like if you cannot read the instructions do not use this product.....really?

    My favorite warning sign is at the OHSU hospital in Portland. The restrooms have a sign the says "Warning! Recycled Water! Do not drink out of toilets or urinals!"

    Haha, love the humor! False advertising claims can get pretty hilarious. If you're serious about boosting your online presence though, consider teaming up with a professional SEO agency. They can help navigate the digital landscape and ensure your website ranks where it deserves.
