"I'm loving it," "Just do it," and "Think different." What do all these have in common? They are all famous brand slogans. Branding is an essential part of a company's success. Although these slogans are successful, that does not mean they are true. An artist named Clif Dickens came up with brutally honest slogans for some of the largest companies in the world. From Mcdonalds to Ikea, he said what everyone was thinking, and these are the hilarious results.
If you have ever bought any kind of furniture from Ikea, you will know the frustration of trying to put it together. By the time you figure out how to put it together, you are somehow left with too many or too few pieces.
It's like Ikea wants you to put in the work and be frustrated in exchange for their low prices.
2. Victoria's Secret
Have you ever watched the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and wondered how the models are so flawless? The company sets such a high standard for what is beautiful, and it has only made women feel that they do not fit societal standards.
For the record, every woman is beautiful no matter what shape or size. The company has received so much backlash for not being size-inclusive, and they are finally jumping on the trend to show women of all sizes.
Isn't it annoying when you open a bag of Lay's, and there are about four chips while the rest of the bag is filled with air?

Activia is a yogurt that has probiotics in it to help keep your digestive system balanced. So basically, it helps you poop. Dannon used Jamie Lee Curtis to sell the product, and it was so memeable.
Each cup has millions of probiotics, and that is great if you are a little backed up.
There is no way that Maybelline is not using photoshop for their ads. No one's skin looks that flawless even with their products caked on.

Perrier water makes you feel like a fancy person because they charge so much when you order it at a restaurant. It does not taste any different than other sparkling water, but it comes in that beautiful green glass bottle.
If you have ever wanted to feel bougie, this is the water for you. The store-brand tastes the same, if not better.
From pens to lighters, you never know how you acquire them, but somehow you always have a Bic. You also always keep the Bic lighters when you borrow them.

9. Candy Crush Saga
If you have ever gotten into playing Candy Crush, you will know how addicting it is. You spend hours trying to beat as many levels as you can, and then you run out of lives.
When you run on lives, that's when the addict in you kicks in. You start begging your Facebook friends for lives until someone answers your desperate request.
10. Urban Outfitters
Urban Outfitters is hands down the most expensive store for the style of clothing they sell. For example, you can buy a t-shirt there with holes in it for upwards of $20 when the shirt should cost less than $10.
You are paying extra for your clothes to look like you got them out of the dumpster. Even though everyone knows this, people continue to shop there because it is still cute!
The worst pain in the world is caused by stepping on a Lego. These are supposed to be a children's toy, but they inflict pain on people of all ages.
Since they are for children, they will inevitably end up on the floor, which means you are bound to step on them.
Not only do they serve you decaf if you are rude, but they also spell your name wrong even if you are nice.
The slogan should also be that their coffee is over-roasted and burnt, but maybe that is just a personal problem.
Gillette is known for continuously adding more blades to their razors. At one point, they had five blades in their razors. Who needs that many blades? Most dermatologists recommend two blades to prevent nicks.
We think they have peaked at five blades, and their new heated razor is removing all those extra blades.

If you ever want to find out you only have two months to live because you have a tickle in your throat, then check Web MD.
Even if you only have a cold, Web MD will convince you that you're on your death bed.

If you use Old Spice you are one fresh-smelling grandpa. Some people seem to dislike the smell of Old Spice, but it doesn't smell that bad compared to other options.

If you are a fan of The Office, you will remember the episode where Michael drove into a lake because that is what his GPS told him to do. The GPS must have been Garmin brand.

26. Axe Body Spray
Just thinking about Axe Body Spray will induce middle/ high school memories. All the boys would douse themselves in this pungent spray to cover up the fact that they hadn't showered in a few days.
While they thought it was benefiting them, it was actually repelling all the women in the school.
27. Tostitos Scoops
It is not only Tostitos scoops that cut your mouth up, but it is also every chip that they make. While their chips are delicious, once you take a bite, the crunchy edges turn into razor blades.
It is even worse when you eat the hint of lime flavor because not only is your mouth being cut, but the lime is also burning the new cuts.
Have you ever read the terms and conditions when a website asks? If you have, you deserve an award because you are rare.

33. Under Armour
When you walk around in athletic clothes without any intention to workout, but you want to give the vibe that you are athletic. It is not just Under Armour, but all athletic brands today are worn leisurely.
Now, more brands have come out with clothes specific for athleisure because it has become a major trend. You can now pay extra to wear clothes specifically meant to make you look athletic without being athletic.
34. Dirt Devil
It has "devil" in the name for a reason. The vacuum terrorizes pets and dirt. Dogs must hate Dirt Devils specifically because of how loud they are.
Dogs are afraid of vacuums because the noise is so loud and produced at such a high frequency.
Purell claims to kill 99.9% of the germs on your hands, so people assume it is better than actually washing your hands with soap and water.
Washing with soap and water should always be your first choice unless hand sanitizer is your only option.
Does anyone know why they include a white crayon? It never comes in handy, and when you try to use it, it just gets dirty, making it useless.
The only time the white one was valuable was when you tried to blend two colors, but that is more advanced than what the average Crayola user is doing.
Tyson makes a variety of chicken products that can be found in the freezer section of the grocery store. They claim that their chicken is of high quality, but is it really?

Febreeze is for when you don't feel like washing anything. It is like Purell; it is the lazy person's washing machine.
It doesn't take away any smells, but it covers them up so you smell the Febreeze with an after scent of garbage.
When you see someone's profile and all they have is group pictures. Most of the time, people would swipe left on those people, but if you are one of the brave ones, you swipe right in hopes that it is the attractive one.
Then you find out its not the hot friend and you are disappointed and asking which one they are.
40. Louis Vitton
There are so many knockoffs of designer brands like Louis Vitton, so you can assume some of the ones you see are fake.
It is also hard to spot the fake versions unless you have a trained eye.
41. Dunkin' Donuts
The original slogan is "America runs on dunkin'," but America indeed eats a lot of donuts. The country is known for having a high percentage of obese people, so this slogan is accurate.
Dunkin Donuts has great donuts and coffee, so it is easy to want to eat a lot of donuts.
42. Taco Bell
Has anyone actually eaten Taco Bell when they were sober? It would be shocking to meet those people.
Is the food edible when you are not under the influence, we would really like to know?

44. Pokemon Go
Pokemon Go has been a popular game since it launched in 2016. It helped people get outside and moving. There were even stories of people who lost weight because they started being active while playing the game.
You can't play Pokemon Go from your couch, so it forces you to get out of your house.
45. Cards Against Humanity
"If Apples to Apples and Satan had a baby." That is so accurate because it is an extremely inappropriate version of Apples to Apples.
You cannot be sensitive when you play this game because it can get intense, and it is not politically correct.
