Fake Restaurant Ads:

The original: Folgers

What they don’t know is we’ve replaced their regular coffee with Folger’s Crystals

What I love about the original is how earnest it is. For one, they admit that they gave all their subjects a free meal. So it is entirely believable they’d say good things about the coffee.

Recently, however, two different companies have revived this ad campaign:

“Pasta” Hut


Hardee’s/Carl Jr’s Fake Restaurant
Instead of calling the fake restaurant “Grade A”, should they should have called it “Gulli BULLs?”

The lesson?
If a friend offers to take you to a new restaurant, don’t order a burger or the pasta, because you might be getting punk’d.
