When something or someone makes it big on the market, expect some imitations to take place. Copycat brands are everywhere. Demands also increase when the popularity of a certain thing rises. With the help of the internet, something can become a trend in an instant if it catches everyone’s attention and taste. But the internet can also serve as a perfect platform for knock-off brands to sell. The internet is indeed full of tricky things and they can fool you if you’re not careful. Let’s take a look at some of the things that are obviously just imitations of famous characters and brands. These copycat brands may think they’re fooling the world but the joke is on them. Little did they know that the world is laughing at them right now. Check out these copycat brands that tried to fool everybody but failed.
These restaurants will give Burger King and Subway a run for their money. At least that’s what they’re thinking.

A certain market in Shanghai was bold enough to use hot melt glue to copy the famous Yankee logo. I wonder if it can fool anyone?
Disney won’t even bother appealing for copyright infringement because they’ll be very busy laughing at this poor knock-off. Seriously? Seven clever boys?
Knock-offs that won’t fool anyone
We’ll just change the name of Freddy Krueger and we’re good to go. We just hope Freddy won’t take this seriously and haunt us in our dreams.
Let me get this straight. Sense of Right = Justice. Alliance = League. But since they used different words, we’ll just let that pass. Not to mention, this collaboration is so complicated.
Wherever you look at it, SandwichBoy PeanutButterPants is original and totally NOT a rip-off of that popular Nickelodeon cartoon.
The look on that kid’s face makes me wanna cry. I feel you, kid. I’d be also disappointed if my parents got this creepy Big Bird for my birthday.
A catchy name will definitely catch people’s eyes. I don’t know how to play these board games but their names got me thinking to ditch my Monopoly set for these.
Would you rather be a Mutant or a Monster? They may look the same but they are entirely different.
