If you had to name the worst product flops ever, what would they be? Would they be beauty products? Maybe something for the home, your car, your person? There have been many products out in the market, but not all of them were successful. Check out the 25 worst products flops you might remember.
Have you ever seen these late-night infomercials and thought to yourself “who would buy that?”. Well, you’re not the only one. Companies and inventors have come up with some bizarre products that for whatever reason consumers didn’t quite appreciate. And it’s not just in infomercials, major companies like soft drink and fast food companies have come up with products that may sound good on paper, but in practice tanked miserably. Check out the worst product flops ever (and our photo credits and sources) and let us know in the comments below if you would buy these products:

Have you heard of Orbitz soda? Don’t be surprised if you haven’t because it was a major flop and was quickly taken off the market. The same goes for “Pepsi A.M.”, McDonald’s Arch Deluxe, and the Coors Rocky Mountain Spring Water. But it’s not just food items that flopped, there’s also things like the Sony Betamax (remember that?), HD-DVD, The Nook, and more! Check out the 25 worst product flops you might remember.

list25 I’d really like to taste new Coke but it’s definitely the worst/best thing Coke has ever done and drummed up love for anything Coca-Cola. But Pepsi is better in my humble opinion unless it’s fountain Coke from McDonald’s.
+T/A Plus Hemi at the time that had been out for a while I was getting adopted.
Here systems as follows I've played or had.
Nintendo Entertainment System.
Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
Sega CD X
Sega 32 X
Game Boy Advance SP.
Game Boy Advanced Micro.
Sony Playstation, 2, 3, 4.
Xbox One X.
P.C. windows 95, XP, 2000, 7, 10.
Beta may have flopped as a consumer format, but Beta (or more specifically, Betacam SP/SX) was the main format used by the entire television industry until roughly 2006.. so I’d say it was a pretty successful format in general
I loved my Zune, and I used it right up to the point where iPhone finally could hold more songs. It had a lot of nice touches that iPhone STILL doesn't have, like AM/FM radio (sweet), and the ability to send a song to another Zune wirelessly. And the interface is still my default music player. I can't stand iTunes.
Orbitz soda looks like one of those lava lamps which reminds of the contents of someones bowels.
Ford Edsel. A rival manufacturer said it looked like a Mercury pushing a toilet seat (the horse collar grill) Perhaps there is some truth in that. The car was shit. Perhaps the grill was a subliminal message from Ford.
2600 Pac Man. I owned it and it was a disaster. I briefly subscribed to Zune but canned it after getting a smart phone. I did think Zune was a decent product. When I worked in the cell phone industry, I never was able to sell even one Taco Phone. Fun fact: the memory card containing the game was under the battery so you had to restart the phone every time you swapped games.
"In 19xx year, (insert random personal fact), but more importantly..."
It was cute the first time but just looks awkwardly scripted and kind of sad with repeated use :(
This concept is wonderful, but he doesn't give nearly enough factual insight (and the photos of the products are tiny and even incomplete at times), and it's obvious by the visual layout (him taking up roughly 4/5 of the screen, with those low-quality visuals relegated to a tiny corner) that HE is the real subject, not the concept or items he's "presenting."
Better feature photos to narrator ratio onscreen would do wonders, as would more thorough research, multiple shots/images of the referent subject items... but still sweet and kinda interesting.
More concise and thorough presentation would do wonders for this though--wishing you the very best of luck!!!
2 things on hd-dvd and blu-ray
- hd dvd as a name makes sense to the mass market. what is it? a dvd in hd!
-blu ray is the dumbest name ever.... it uses a blue laser soooo... blue ray! not only does it not describe what it is it's named after a very specific component with previous iterations NOT being named after (red ray?)
Betamax failed because Sony would not sell licenses for other companies to make it. JVC on the other hand sold the licenses for VHS to many companies. So over time VHS just simply out sold Betamax. The result was fewer Betamax machines on the market. With fewer Betamax on the market there were less movie on the market for it. Finally movie were just sold for VHS. Betamax dies a slow but quick death. But yes Betamax was the best machine unless you has to work on it.
Took me to 14 to see any products i knew about
Not brands, the actual product,
After betamax I only know of a few others, hd-dvd, N-gage, Atari 2600 and Nintendo vertical boy (console geek)
I'm not American so it's not surprising,
Had no idea about any of the foods,
I only drink tea and eat fish and chips.
Half of the products here I think they didn't even got out or farther out from where he was growing up. How come he never mentioned where he's from but instead he kept mentioning his age over and over and over.
Tried Orbitz, too sweet for my likes. The little balls were weird but, they dissolved in your body. New Coke had a funky after taste. Original is better. Tried the chips, once. Luckily I never ate a lot at once. I almost bought Nintendo Virtual Reality, bought it cost too much.
I liked Orbit sodas. I thought they tasted really good(except for the Orange-Vanilla). I was always buying them for friends, who also liked the way they tasted, but apparently I was the only person actually buying them...
Like the. Video and content,but hearing you say you were three when Pepsi AM was introduced in ‘“89, no clue how you can be a good deal younger than me... you look like you’re pushing 50.... damn dude. You a smoker??
Worst thing about the Zune was it's weight...to heavy for it's form factor. When I was very young and before the Nintendo, I had an Atari that was hooked up to an old B&W TV...only games I remember was baseball (where pulling back on the joystick guaranteed a home run), Knight Rider, and a combat tank game.
My Wife and I loved that burger! McD's **BIGGEST MISTAKE** with it, was their HORRENDOUS advertising campaign! I mean, seriously... advertising *FOOD* with bunches of kids acting totally disgusted and grossed out?! Their stupid ad campaign actually caused me to NOT want to try the burger! Eventually, SOMETHING encouraged me to try it, and we loved it! Only to see it disappear in less than a year. :(
I remember being completely disappointed as well! You would CONSTANTLY fall into pits, and the stupid time always ran out much too quickly. I read a story about how they RUSHED the developers of it to such a point, they couldn't get all of the bugs out, they just made it "playable". Barely. It's an interesting story with a Geek twist.
I love how Coke still insists New Coke tasted better than Classic. That was *not* the experience I had.
A truck set up outside of the local pool, and offered free samples in little paper cups. My friends and I were actually pretty excited. We stood in line and grabbed our sample. We even made a toast. Then we tasted it. It was like flat Pepsi at best. We thought maybe we got a cup from a 2-liter that had been opened for awhile, so we bought a can. Nope! Still the same sticky mess. It re-affirmed my love for Dr. Pepper.
+list25 I agree with the main comment.
To help you out, when talking about the product, get rid of the view of you talking and focus only on the thing you're talking about and give us viewers multiple pictures of the products.
It's fine to talk about yourself, but not every couple of seconds, it makes you look conceded which I'm sure you're not.
Other than these 2 things, I think you do a great job and the segment was well written.
I wish you success my brother.
Blu-ray won because of storage size. 25 gigabytes on HD-DVD 50 gigabytes on Blu-ray the porn industry didn’t help or hurt HD-DVD loss to Blu-ray the movie industry was the main reason why. VOD will kill off Blu-ray within the next decade.
You didn't mention the Palm Pre phone and the fight with Apple. Palm is now owned by HP and they never did anything with it after buying it and it wasn't a "worst" product but it went away fast. It was actually voted "best new tech product" at the 2009 tech expo and was far better than any phone on the market back then but just didn't sell cause people are stupid and they see a celebrity with a piece of shit Iphone and the sheep have to follow. I had this phone and it did things that even today's phones still can't do.
The Microsoft Zune was awesome. It's user interface was intuitive and was so much better than having to use iTunes. Plus, you could upload/download your music to any computer, without any issues. Although, now that the storage on phones has increased, it is much easier to have everything on one device.

Bricolajul a ajuns in Romania in urma cu aproximativ 10 ani, insa in Statele Unite si in statele occidentale acest concept este mai vechi, si isi are originile la inceputul anilor ’50. Bricolajul se refera la capacitatea oamenilor de a crea sau repara diverse obiecte fara a apela la ajutor specializat.
Primul catalog de bricolaj pentru renovarea locuintei a aparut in 1968. Acesta a nascut conceptul de bricolaj care sta la baza lanturilor de magazine din zilele noastre. De la covoare si perdele, pana la mobilier si prefabricate, bricolajul se refera la tot ce inseamna renovarea unei locuinte in aceasta acceptiune.
Pe orlo.ro gasesti toate cataloagele de bricolaj, de la cei mai importanti comercianti. Catalog Dedeman, Catalog Praktiker, Catalog Baumax, Catalog Bricostore, Catalog Ambient si altii.
In Romania retelele de magazine pentru bricolaj sau extins rapid, cel mai important comerciant din acest segment este Dedeman, care a pornit din orasul Bacau si a ajuns sa detina magazine in cele mai importante orase din tara.
