In the pre-Adbusters era Pollution Probe (before they became a corporate shill, more recently) also developed mock advertisements for silly consumer items such as the revolutionary Electric Spoon.

Supposedly a good compliment to the electric carving knife, the electric spoon was a new consumer item that illustrated why we should just Refuse outright much of what is pitched to us, never mind the packaging.

Today the availability of things like Dishwasher Cleaner(!) drives the point home but it is a real product rather than a satirical one. How long before we are offered soap cleanser, lol?
