Really bad idea for a product name

Submitted by: buz 12 years ago in Entertainment

Woah, they REALLY picked the wrong name (I assume this was before the 1980s).

Ahh silly silly company. I can only imagine what the board meeting consisted of when AIDS turned into an epidemic.

I remember the commercials very well. I can`t remember whether they started yanking it from the shelves before or after the whole AIDS thing got really big. There was a rumor about tapeworm eggs, at least where I lived. I read that some performers (like Maria Callas) did ingest tapeworm eggs on purpose...dunno if that`s another myth...but I doubt there were any tapeworms in these. ;)

Ok I realize it was on MTV and VH1, and a few people have stumbled across it on the web. I only suggested they put it on here because people who don`t watch those tv stations or use Google might get a good laugh from it.

I remember seeing this on VH1`s Web Junk. I thought it was pretty funny, but didn`t trust it`s reality. I`m not sure, a lot of the stuff I see on the web nowadays is staged. I`ll give it a vote up just because it was real. :)

"omg repost? how come i already see over half the stuff posted on here? am i just an interesting guy or is everyone so uncreative that they have to take stuff from other websites and post it here. that`s like...stealing..
i mean i could do that but everyone would figure it out when i do it but they won`t on anyone else.."
the whole point of this site is to collect good links from across the web and put them in one place - no `stealing`, nobody`s claiming credit for anything original on here. And we`re all here because we have too much time on our hands so if you`ve seen it all already i would say that doesn`t make you an interesting guy, just one with even more time than everyone else ;-)

bigoldjeffry, I remember hearing that, but I can`t remember what product it was rumored to be. Taking dieting to the extreme, if you ask me...
Guess it`s cheaper than lyposuction though!

Do you guys remember if this was the one that everyone was saying had a tapeworm in it?

I remember some urban legend about a diet pill that had literally a tape worm in it. You lost weight because it ate all the food that you ate.

Totally real!

They still had them when I was a runt! I remember they were like little square Cadbury`s Caramels.

My mom used them and I once snuck in and ate half a box.

And they were called Ayds!

Ya know...there`s a handy dandy thing called Google.

There was a diet candy called Ayds in the 60s and 70s, but was discontinued in the 80s.
