It seems that for every pop culture icon, at least 2,374,551 knock-offs enter the market, trying to make a dollar off of the famous name. But some of them are so bad, so laughably terrible, that it’s impossible to imagine anyone mistaking them for the real thing.
I mean, there’s Groot and then there’s Greg. RoboCop and SilverCop. Sonic and… Blue Speed Mouse.
If someone has bought one of these abominations — and I really hope nobody did — it’s just because they forgot their friend’s birthday and walked into a store 5 minutes before the party, saw a stupid thing on a shelf, and thought it would make a funny joke of a present. That’s it. I refuse to believe there’s another reason why people would spend money on this stuff. Many just take a picture of these items, send the image to an Instagram account called Ugly Bootlegs, and put it right back. And that’s enough.
Here are some of the most absurd pictures Ugly Bootlegs has received so far.
