Listen, I love the Toy Story movies as much as the next '90s kid, but I couldn't help but be drawn to the Mr. Potato Heads and Slinky Dog toys more than Woody and Bo Peep. There was just something about those toys up in Andy's room that made them feel... lame. Unspectacular. Off-brand. If Buzz Lightyear was the big flashy Christmas toy, Woody was the off-brand dollar store whatever that a well-meaning grandmother would get as a Christmas present, only to make her Nintendo Switch-craving grandson cry.
Is that harsh to Woody? Maybe a little! But the point is, Off-brand items bum me out. It just feels like someone made a product they don't care about. If they were deeply invested in their work, why not come out with an innovative, original product?
But look, we're all going to revel in our discomfort for off-brand together, with these images of shockingly depraved knock-off products. Your jaw will drop when you see how brazen some of these can be.
