The founder of Worst Buy told Bored Panda all about what inspired them to start the IG account. "What makes us stand out is that what we do is original, artistic, and visual! I think that moment where our post comes up and people are like, 'Wait is this a real ad? Why am I being shown—oh, this is Worst Buy!'" they said.

According to the founder, they started Worst Buy because they "absolutely love" Photoshop. "My job doesn’t give me much in the way of a creative outlet. Now, almost 500,000 people on Instagram get to suffer each and every day."

The ‘Worst Buy’ account has a whopping 474k followers and they’ve already made over 2.4k posts on their account. Now that’s a lot of made-up crap-tastic products for people to avoid!

They even sell t-shirts with horrible designs on them that really aren’t worth the price. Seriously, give them a wide berth and don’t even consider checking their shop out. I’ll just put the link to their t-shirts right here. Just so you know to avoid looking at the cringy designs that made me choke on my cup of tea.

We can instantly tell if a product is good or bad. It’s instinctive. It’s in your gut. But once we start thinking about why we love or loathe something, we can hit a brick wall. So what makes some product designs work while others make us run for the hills?

These two were absolutely frightening, the way they handled their guns, it's amazing they didn't shoot someone or each other. My ex was a gun nut, he's why I hate guns, but he was also a gun safety freak, he would've gone off on them. Unless and until you are ready to shoot, guns pointed up or down, her gun hand was not braced-her shot would've gone wild and even a small caliber has a recoil. And my favorite was when they unwittingly pointed their guns at each other. SMH.

First of all, there’s no such thing as a perfect design: everything can be improved. But in general, there are some things to keep in mind.

Products should be designed in a way that makes them self-explanatory—customers should know what it does at first glance. That means keeping away from adding too many extra useless features that distract people from the product’s primary purpose.

On the flip side, products can’t be too mediocre, otherwise, they’ll blend into the crowd. So it’s all about finding a balance between great looks and not diluting the main message of the product.

However, even if a product looks brilliant, it doesn’t mean that it’s designed well. You have to be able to use it well. Imagine having a designer coffee cup riddled with holes. It might look aesthetic but your shirt soon won’t if you pour any coffee into the cup. So we’re glad that ‘Worst Buy’ exists because it’s a great guide on what not to do. Just in case you were planning on designing some products, dear Pandas.

Plot twist: the guy in the middle (Zuckerberg) is an Android (mandroid?) made by the others who then goes rogue and they have to try and stop him before he achieves world domination.

But did he change a weather chart with a sharpie to prove that he was right when he said that a hurricane was going to hit Alabama?

Wouldn’t have surprised me if this was a real product. Japan has made numerous kit kat versions from baked potato to cough drop.
