Don’t you just hate it when you open up a bag of chips only to find that one third of the air-filled bag actually contains greasy goodness. Or how about when you crack open a box of cookies and are greeted with cardboard on both ends, squishing the available cookie space in half. Oh, the disappointment! Well get ready for a similar tale of a girl who thought she was buying a long lightning cable, but found that the product fell short of her expectations after opening it.

The photos of false advertising were posted on Twitter by @07310513, also known as Ayaka.

▼ “It looked long.”

Sure, you can blame Ayaka for not realizing that if she were expecting a long cable, the package would have been significantly heavier. But when you see the two ends of the cable peaking out of the long expanse of plastic and cardboard, any reasonable person would assume there’s a big swath of cable hidden underneath. What’s more, the company went the extra deceptive mile to label it with the awkward measurement of 0.1m. Sounds pretty long, right? It’s actually just 10cm (or 4in for us American folks). So the next time you make a purchase, be sure to read the package carefully. Just like you can’t judge a book by its cover, you can’t judge a lighting cable by its oversized packaging.
