When it comes to creativity, I believe that not even the sky’s the limit… especially if there’s potential profit involved. And one place that the human imagination truly shines (for better or for worse… probably for worse) is in the creation of knockoff products that are meant to capitalize on the success of well-known brands.

The r/crappyoffbrand subreddit pokes fun at all the hilariously bad knockoff products that can be found around the globe and make up a surprisingly large part of the global economy, and we’ve collected some of the best new pics featured by their 908k+ strong memberbase.

While I’m getting myself a nice refreshing glass of Bepsi and some delicious turkey NcMoggets, have a scroll down, upvote the pics that made you smile and laugh, and share your own encounters with cheap knockoffs in the comments! Psst, Pandas, want to feast your eyes on more knockoffs? They’re free, no strings attached, we promise. All you have to do is click here for our previous article about the ‘Crappy Off Brand’ subreddit.

Counterfeit goods really are big business. However, it’s difficult to put a specific number on its impact because, well, it’s not exactly all legal, is it? That’s why the numbers can vary a lot depending on what report you read.

There’s a huge demand for knockoff products and according to one report released by the OECD and the EUIPO in 2019, it’s an industry that’s worth over 500 billion dollars globally. “The value of imported fake goods worldwide topped $509 billion based on 2016 customs seizure data, up from $461 billion in 2013, the latter of which represents 2.5% of world trade,” writes TFL.

Meanwhile, World Trademark Review points to the 2018 Global Brand Counterfeiting Report which shows that the volume of international trade in counterfeit goods reached a whopping 1.2 trillion dollars in 2017.

Created back in 2015, the ‘Crappy Off brand’ subreddit will be celebrating its 6th birthday on June 14. The sub’s moderators set a high standard for the type of content that people can post. Not everything is a good fit for r/crappyoffbrand, you see.

Oreos are the knock-off. Those are HYDROX knock-offs. Because Hydrox is the original cookie. Oreo is the knock -off made by the family of the guy that invented Hyrdrox cookies. You think your family has a feud, that one is just plain EVIL.

For instance, the mods make it perfectly clear that if you post absolutely anything related to Fall Guys or Among Us, you’ll end up being banned. Our best guess is that the subreddit was over-saturated with products related to the two popular video games and everyone was a tad fed up with seeing the same old things over and over (and over) again.

What’s more the community is specifically dedicated to bad knockoff brands. That means that no good off-brands are welcome. What’s more, the subreddit isn’t the place for people to post badly designed products: it also has to be a knockoff. Other than that, r/crappyoffbrand’s other rules are pretty much the standard that you’d expect from any other popular subreddit: be nice to others, don’t repost stuff, and don’t advertise your own products.
