A poorly chosen font turned the message on a Halloween product into something very rude.
An image of the product was shared on Reddit, and it shows a cutout of a black cat with string around its neck, with the message “Trick or Treat” written on the bottom half.
But thanks to the “spooky” red font, the message is a bit confusing as many “trick” letters have become scrambled, making it look like it reads “f **” or deals “.
On Reddit, it was claimed the item was on sale at B&M stores, but a representative said they were not stocking the product.
What do you think about the choice of the font? Let us know in the comments …
After the photo was shared on Reddit, many users rushed to the post to comment on their opinion, and one user said, “There’s no way it wasn’t intentional.”
And another added: “I shudder to imagine what ‘dealing’ involves.”
While a third user wrote: “The designer didn’t give a tip.”
“How do these things escape the attention of those responsible? Asked a fourth user. At one point this design had to go through several offices of different people in charge, surely not all of them are so boring, boring and disconnected. with the reality that they don’t notice these cock-ups. “
But at the last point, a Reddit user got a response. They added, “You can’t imagine how cheaply this product is made in foreign countries by workers who wouldn’t understand the context of the word even if they checked.
“It has probably been seen by someone and that is why it is in a discount store and not in a large supermarket.”
