Fake Arms vs. Fake Fake Arms

One of these TV commercials is real, and one is fake. Are you a savvy enough consumer to spot which is which?

On the left is the Hug E Gram; on the right, the G. F. Spooner.

Answer after the jump!

Yep, this one was tough. And despite the telltale-spoofy drug-culture overtones in both spots (website URL that actually spells "Huge Gram"; guy toking bowl) it does appear that the Hug E Gram ad is indeed real. Probably.

Our YBNBY Crack Research Team* called the toll-free number to ask if this product is fo-realz and received this automated message:

You have reached Caremark. We are unable to handle your call at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please try your call later.

I guess all their operators' heads must have exploded from the overwhelming Valentine's Day demand, huh? On the Hug E Gram website is a "testimonial" allegedly written by a woman recovering from breast cancer, so if this Mickey Mouse pelt belt is a fake, we can at least rest assured that someone will be going to Hell for it. And hopefully bunking with John Mayer.

*No, we feed them mostly crystal meth, actually.

I think the Hug-E Gram sends an empowering message about how we cannot learn to touch others until we are willing to touch ourselves.
