Hot Dog Water

Post by Anaxagoras »

Apparently somebody was just trolling when they came up with this one, but people bought it anyway.

People bought $38 'hot dog water' said to support weight loss — and they were in for a rude awakening
Health and dieting fads are nothing new. From "appetite suppressant" lollipops to the "snake diet," it seems people will try virtually anything that promises relatively easy weight loss. The latest weird dieting product? Hot dog water.

People in Vancouver reportedly paid $38 for bottles of unfiltered "hot dog water" said to support weight loss, increase brain function, and give a more youthful appearance, Yahoo News reported.

The "hot dog water" was sold at a stall at a Car-Free Day festival in Vancouver, British Columbia, over the weekend — and some people did indeed drink it, according to Yahoo.

But many missed the fact that the product was a stunt — and that the creator was trying to prove a point about misleading health marketing
