It’s no surprise that advertisers will do some pretty crazy things in order to promote a product. Whether it’s working with Photoshop or utilizing crazy props and materials in order to make something look extra appealing, advertising knows no bounds.

The truth is, the delicious-looking culinary concoctions we see in print ads and television commercials would be anything but appetizing if they were on your plate. Many times it wouldn’t even be fair to identify them as food. They’re more like a terrifying Frankenstein-like type of quasi sustenance commonly made up of a partially cooked food and a carefully created combination of interesting additives.
