WASHINGTON – The Federal Trade Commission said Wednesday that Skechers agreed to pay $40 million to settle charges it misled consumers with claims that its toning sneakers would do everything from help them lose weight to make their “bottom half their better half” without ever going to a gym.
Other products currently being looked into by the FTC:
Has the word “egg” in the name” but does NOT contain eggs.
Two And A Half Men:
Claims to be funny. Isn’t.
Ads insinuate it makes you cooler. (Probably does)
Milk Bone Dog Biscuits:
Claim they taste better than ever. Did the dogs say that?
Ads make it seem like when you take a sip you immediately begin singing and dancing.
The burgers on TV actually look edible. Extremely deceptive.
Their ads somehow make insurance fun. In the real world the last word you would use is “fun.”
No one makes red bows that size.
Crayola Crayons & Elmer’s Glue:
Don’t taste as good as they look in ads. Smell better, though.
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter:
99% of people who taste it know immediately it’s not butter.
And spit it out.
