This subreddit is a forum in which users can submit pictures or videos of examples of crappy or just plain funny off-brand versions of various products. These examples can be both from present day as well as from the past. We also encourage submission of examples on film and TV where a name-brand product is substituted for something more absurd.

Also encouraged are posts of bad knock-offs (fake visions of products that fail to resemble the original in pretty obvious and hilarious ways).
