A photo that made its way to the front page of reddit today is possibly the most hilarious example of BS marketing at its best.
The photo, posted by reddior redditbrock, features the Rapid Ramen Cooker, a product that claims to be the “word’s fastest and easiest way to cook ramen noodles”. It has been featured on Shark Tank and even landed an investment from billionaire Mark Cuban himself.
The product also markets themselves as a way to reduce sodium in your instant ramen by 50%.
However, when you turn it around and take a closer look, you’ll immediately find out how exactly they take out the sodium: You simply just put half the seasoning.
Someone give their marketing guy a raise.
