The OMG what were they thinking ad: Miracle Blade III

Another vid from this top 10 list, it's their #1 pick for being laughably misleading. The comments are hilarious:
"The fun starts around 27 seconds in, with a gory scene where a woman stabs a tomato and apparently nicks its artery.

The next shot shows us a guy who is apparently “ruining his meal” by carving his turkey perfectly, completely without the help of a Miracle Blade.

Finally, we are shown a guy dressed like a construction worker cutting some meat with a hacksaw, wearing safety hat and glasses no less.

We realize he’s supposed to be a playful caricature, which is odd considering the entire joke here seems to be that the knives you have at home are probably fine and don’t really need replacing.

It seriously makes us wonder if somebody at the ad company just said “fuck it” and decided to see if the manufacturer and/or the customers would notice an intentionally retarded ad.

Well, the verdict is apparently in. The intro says they’re the best-selling knives in America.

The reality:
According to the reviews, the only complaint is too much of a good thing:

“… well I ended up in the emergency room with stitches …. just be careful they are really quite sharp.”

Hopefully that person wasn’t peeling a potato when that happened. Otherwise, we owe the Handy Peel an apology."
