"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.

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?

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 slogan should also be that their coffee is over-roasted and burnt, but maybe that is just a personal problem.

Even if you only have a cold, Web MD will convince you that you're on your death bed.

Have you ever read the terms and conditions when a website asks? If you have, you deserve an award because you are rare.

Unless you have never tasted real butter in your life, you can tell that "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" is not butter.
