20 of the Crappiest Knockoffs Ever

Advertisement

If you want to get rich, you can come up with an idea for a product that nobody’s ever thought of before.

But that’s pretty hard to do. So, if you’re OK with being significantly less rich, you can simply wait for somebody else to come up with a great idea and then shamelessly rip them off. All you gotta do is make an inferior version of their product, tweak it juuuuuust enough to avoid a copyright lawsuit, and then start cashing your checks. It’s the American way.

Today we’re celebrating some of the most brazen knockoffs of our favorite products, characters, and brands. The folks who make them might not have much originality, but you gotta admire their gumption.
