* It's very common to see cheap projectors sold online with impressively high resolution mentioned in the product title, only for the detailed specs to reveal that this is the ''input'' resolution rather than the resolution it displays. So yes, the projector will happily accept a 1080p Full HD image... but it only has the hardware to project that 1080p image ''scaled down'' to 480p.

* Maxwell House did this same "100% hand-picked Arabica" schtick long before [=McDonald's=] thought of it, and quite a few brands in the US quickly followed suit. Folger's, significantly, does ''not'' make any such claims, mostly because their product does in fact contain a large percentage of Robusta beans. This stems from a price war in the 60s and 70s that, among other things, had companies moving to using only cheaper, harsher tasting Robusta beans. The practice had nearly killed the coffee market by the early 1980s.

* One Sanderson Farms commercial has a marketing whiz throwing out various buzzwords "no antibiotics!" and "gluten-free!" to which the two poultry farmers in the ad point out that none of the chicken you can buy has antibiotics in it by federal law, and chicken has no gluten by default.

** This also shows up in the [[Memes/{{Pokemon}} memetic]] "Diggersby, tho?!" rant. The narrator praises Diggersby's Huge Power ability, which treats its Attack stat as doubled in combat. Diggersby has a poor Attack stat to begin with, so even with Huge Power it's not outstanding, and the rest of its stats are mediocre at best. Additionally, Huge Power is not unique to Diggersby.

(It is a LethalJokeCharacter due to its ridiculously strong Earthquakes, but it is not some overwhelmingly strong monster.)

* Possibly averted by a brand of circular oat cereal which recently applied the "gluten free" label to its boxes. The back of the box acknowledges that the oats from which the cereal is made would not have gluten, but they changed their agreement with processing facilities to ensure no cross contamination from wheat products.

* Recently, Antarctica was declared the most LGBT-friendly continent. This probably has more to do with the nature of Antarctica ([[HumansAreBastards no permanent residents]], no companies or corporations based in Antarctica), and the fact that there aren't any laws (either favorable or unfavorable towards the LGBT set) ''in'' Antarctica, just laws governing what other countries can and cannot do there (for example, no military installments) than anything else. It's literally true that Antarctica is more LGBT-friendly than any other continent...but kind of deceptively so.

* The label on bottles of the mineral water brand Hydr8 boast that it's completely free of sugar, calories and colouring. Of course, this is true of water in general. You might as well brag that "The novels from Random House all include words that you can read to get a story!" or that "With a Subaru, not only can you listen to the built-in radio, but you can also drive the car to travel to another place!" The only difference is, it's possible to make an unreadable book or a broken car. If you've managed to make water that contains one of those without additives, you've broken the laws of reality.

** Eveready[[note]]at the time, the creator of the Energizer brand; these days Energizer is the parent company, and Eveready their subsidiary[[/note]] created the Energizer Bunny campaign as a [[TakeThat direct shot]] against Duracell. Duracell did successfully sue Eveready, though, over their "Nothing Lasts Longer" claim in the Energizer ads[[note]]Which were actually true -- nothing lasts longer, although all of their alkaline competitors last ''just as'' long[[/note]]. Subsequently, the fictional competitor "Supervolt" was created as a BrandX parody of Duracell, still implying that Energizer can outlast their alkaline rivals.

** Even more ironically, a lot of farm-raised pink salmon is fed red food ''dyes'' to achieve that color (wild salmon eat shrimp, which colors their meat pink; farm-raised salmon is usually fed cornmeal, which doesn't). Undyed salmon advertised as such is probably just a question of time.
