Some of the least aesthetically pleasing products and things you’ll ever see


The internet is full of all manner of joyful images of the wonderful world around us. But there are some corners of the net that are less aesthetically pleasing.


We’ve found a Facebook page called “Things that are not aesthetic” which is choc-full of weird and wonderful photos from all over the place. These are often cringe-worthy products or simply weird happenings. For your enjoyment, we’ve collected some of the best.

POCKET-LINT VIDEO OF THE DAY

We can actually see the humour in this one. Not only is the sign designed with multiple fonts, whoever made it didn’t plan out the space very well.

Steel toed Crocs

Crocs aren’t exactly known for being safe and comfortable footwear, but perhaps that’s all about to change with these steel toes ones?

Don’t honk it

Things that are not aesthetic

To toot or to not toot, that is the question.

If you saw this, we bet you normally wouldn’t touch it, but the addition of the post-it note suggesting you don’t really makes it tough to resist doesn’t it?

Do not eat your cushions

Things that are not aesthetic

As tech geeks, we actually appreciate the humour of this one. A cushion that’s made to look like a large silica gel packet. Do not eat seems like good advice for both the gel packets and the cushions.

Van Gogh mug

As Kate Lilac asked over on Facebook, we’d like to know the answer to this too:

“Did they break the mug just so they could paint it as Van Gogh for a joke, or did they break it on accident and then come up with the idea? Inquiring minds need to know!”

Either way it’s both amusing and weird.

Fluffy Mona Lisa

We’ve seen a few different versions of Mona Lisa over the years, but this is the first time we’ve seen one that looks like it was made out of dog fur.

The future is

This mug has the answer to your future. But it’s not telling you what that is until you pay $2.

Table legs

We can’t decide if we like or loathe this table. We admire the creativity of whoever made it though and have no doubt that it makes for an interesting talking piece when visitors pop over.

Thomas the grumpy engine

Things that are not aesthetic

It seems like this person was trying to combine both steam power and petrol power in one vehicle.

The result only made Thomas the Tank Engine very grumpy.

That dress

Things that are not aesthetic

Remember the dress that had the internet in a tizzy a few years back? A weird optical illusion that had everyone arguing about what colour it was., Well, now you have the answer in dress form.

Toilet seat guitar

Things that are not aesthetic

This is certainly a unique looking guitar. One that looks like someone has just removed it from the toilet and attached a neck and some strings to it.

Pea mobile

Amy posted this on Twitter with the simple line “…there’s no time to explain. get in the pea.”

And now we’re stuck wondering what sort of antics the owner of this car gets up to. We bet they’re a fun-loving bod. A real loose cannon.

Indoor balcony

Things that are not aesthetic

You’ve been told the new apartment you’re interested in has a balcony. Well, that sounds nice doesn’t it? A view out over the rooftops or perhaps of the surrounding countryside? Wonderful.

Then you arrive to look it over and find this. Indoor balconies in a hallway. Well, at least now you can chat to your neighbours without getting too close.

Cybertruck V2

Remember when the Cybertruck was revealed? Well, one intriguing individual decided that it was missing one thing and that thing was wood panelling.

Get to the choppa!

Things that are not aesthetic

We can’t imagine sneaking this purchase past our wives. Imagine installing a fan that looks like a helicopter. We expect it’s not particularly good for cooling the room either.

Why Batman wears a mask

If this toy is anything to go by, we now know why Batman insists on wearing a mask. He’s a handsome fellow.

Wii mote skins

If you’ve got a Nintendo Wii and it’s ageing a bit, why not jazz up your controllers with some new skins from a film that also hasn’t aged very well.

Hot dogs for lunch

Fancy a hot dog? Not got a clean pan? No problem, just pop them in the kettle. This has the added bonus that your tea will taste deliciously like hot dogs next time you boil a brew.

Disappointing pizza

Things that are not aesthetic

You’ve ordered a pizza and then you open the box after the delivery person has left to find this waiting for you inside. Utter disappointment in pizza form. Perhaps the toppings were a bit overly generous and weighty.

Chandeliers

ThingsThatAreNotAesthetic

Worried your car isn’t quite fancy enough? Looking for an upgrade? Why not just install some Chandeliers? Wonderfully flamboyant and these lights will certainly render your vehicle far less likely to be stolen. We can’t speak to the road worthiness though.

Danger

Some of the least aesthetically pleasing products and photos you'll ever see photo 21
ThingsThatAreNotAesthetic

This photo makes us anxious on so many levels. Not only is that one dirty PC, but it’s also in danger of being soaked with wine at any moment. Even more so when you see the paw of a feline stretching out towards the precariously balanced glass.

Not a scratch on it

Some of the least aesthetically pleasing products and photos you'll ever see photo 22
ThingsThatAreNotAesthetic

You certainly would not have to worry about scratches or dings with a body work like this. We wonder what would happen if this car was in a traffic accident though, we’d imagine the other vehicle would come off worse.

Push or pull?

ThingsThatAreNotAesthetic

You know those annoying doors that need to be pushed, even when they have a handle? You see the door handle, you assume you need to grab it and pull it, but no, it won’t budge.

Well no you need wonder no more, as this door doesn’t even know what it’s doing either.

Wheelie big

Some of the least aesthetically pleasing products and photos you'll ever see photo 24
ThingsThatAreNotAesthetic

This car is proof that just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. Though once again like other cars on this list, it’s certainly a unique looking vehicle that isn’t going to get stolen.

Pinapple pizza

Some of the least aesthetically pleasing products and photos you'll ever see photo 25
ThingsThatAreNotAesthetic

Are you of the ilk that believes that pineapple should never grace pizza? What about this nightmarish thing. It looks like pizza on pineapple. Or more likely a pizza shaped like a pineapple. Delicious.

Terrible phone cases

Some of the least aesthetically pleasing products and photos you'll ever see photo 26
ThingsThatAreNotAesthetic

We’ve seen some nifty phone cases in our time, with hilarious and awesome designs, but this one is terrible.

We know what they were trying to do, but “trying” is the operative word here.

Try some delicious Spronk

Some of the least aesthetically pleasing products and photos you'll ever see photo 27
ThingsThatAreNotAesthetic

Nothing makes us want to try Spronk more than the idea of showering in it. What a strange advert this is. Imagine washing yourself with soda.

No hand hugs

Some of the least aesthetically pleasing products and photos you'll ever see photo 28
ThingsThatAreNotAesthetic

Confusing signs are great aren’t they?

“We’re no hand hugs, open masks shakes very to the allowed, ok ok truth.”

Giant Airpods

Some of the least aesthetically pleasing products and photos you'll ever see photo 29
ThingsThatAreNotAesthetic

This is the sort of thing that happens when you purchase your products from shady online sellers for less than the usual asking price.

But perhaps a giant AirPod isn’t a bad thing? You’d have trouble losing this after all.

Hairy Apple Watch

hairy wrist apple watch

The Apple Watch sure has become popular and there are plenty of Apple Watch faces to change from. But what if you want to stand out from the norm? Well, why not make your watch look see-through? This is either genius or heinous depending on your opinion.

Mobile usability

cool tim

Admittedly this image is pretty aesthetic, but it does conjure up painful memories of trying to deal with awkward user experience problems on mobile websites and apps. Like a pesky pop up advert that’s in the way of what you’re trying to read but you also can’t close it unless you use the tiniest part of the tip of your finger.

Killer VR

Palmer Luckey

In 2022 Oculus founder Palmer Luckey revealed a new VR headset design that was purposely built to kill the user. The premise of this device is simple enough, lose the VR game you’re playing and you also lose your life. This gives a whole new meaning to permadeath. Obviously, it hasn’t actually been used and the design is hideous but we have to admire the ingenuity at least.

Hairy staircase

Hairy staircase

This hairy staircase is the work of Tennessee-based artist Jessica Wohl. She created these weird and wonderful creations using synthetic hair running downstairs. The inspiration for it is certainly interesting “long hair implies growth, so whether in a stairwell, on a bed or a chair, the inclusion of hair in the work implies that there’s something alive within that structure” Wohl explained.

We just can’t stop thinking what it would be like to walk up and down these stairs. Slippery, awkward and uncomfortable no doubt. And a pain to keep clean as well.

Awkward dice

yikes

Kyle Hill

These dice hurt both our eyes and our brain. Oddly weird looking. Funny how such a small change to something we’re all familiar with can make sure a big difference.
