So, to celebrate, we're looking international to see the top eleven products from other countries that are either rip-offs, broken, or just wrong on so many levels that they come back to hilarious from the other direction.
Major thanks to the website knockingoff.com for either supplying the images or inspiring me to find them elsewhere.
#11) Break So Bad
Suddenly this puts the show's alternate ending into a lot more context.
#10) Homer Pikachu & Spongebob Pikachu
I listed both of these because I simply couldn't choose which one was more disturbing. I'm leaning towards the Homerchu, though, if only because I'm trying to figure out how its digestive system works.
#9) Spider-Man Packing Heat
Okay, first off, is he wearing blue jeans? Second, does that bit of red text really suggest "enjoying the pleasure together?" Third...am I forgetting when Spider-Man low-crawled through bushes with a machine gun? Was this part of that stupid "Secret War" story?
#8) Game of Thrones Season 2 - Starring Thor
Well, if anything was going to get me to start watching the series, this would probably be it.
"Ymir is coming."
#7) Spider-Man is secretly the Terminator
Now THIS story I remember!
#6) The only two backpacks I ever want to own.
I'm really not sure what's the most impressive item here. The HOUsE MD Quake III Arena Pikachu Trent Flint From Prodigy Apple Logo backpack or the Harry Potter Obama The Hedgehog Ten With A Urine Stain And Two Flowers backpack. On the one hand, that's a pretty neat "10" medal "not Sonic" is wearing there, but on the other hand, I'd pay cash money to see Prodigy fight a Pikachu to the death for Apple products in a Quake III arena battle.
#5) The Best Fireworks Ever
With all the success of Godzilla, Pacific Rim, and Cloverfield, maybe we'll finally get that movie based on a giant Chewbacca terrorizing Seattle.
#4) Power Hulk(?) Figure
I'm sorry, but if I saw a comic book about the Superior Powered Thunderbolt Overlord Top King (or a movie under the same name) I would buy a copy for everybody I knew.
#3) He-Man Alcohol
There's tipsy. Then there's drunk. Then there's wasted. Then there's He-Man wasted, which lets you think naming a character "Fisto" is a good idea.
If anybody ever gets me a bottle of any of that, I will record myself drinking it and post the video online.
#2) Die Hard. A movie about footwear.
Based on the text, you'd think that the first movie was a more action packed version of The Devil Wears Prada.
...I never saw that movie, for the record, but I'm guessing Prada is shoes.
#1) Titanic-Bot (TRANSFORMABLE)
Oh, if James Cameron only knew.
