Next week Omo will be passing these samples out to kid, using the logic that the parents wash.

It won't be their fault that some of them attempts to drink the actually looks like a sports drink bottles.

At that rate, I would advise consumers of Sparkle glass cleaner (a popular brand in Chicago) to
hide it from thirsty kids.  The purple color makes it look like grape juice.

Avoid Mountain Dew as well.....it looks like something you already drank.  (Figure that out.)

Are you farking serious?!


All competitors were given a free sample of "Omo Aktiv & Sport", together with their starting numbers before the race, reported Hamar Arbeiderblad.

"Gee, we gave sports competitors something named 'Omo Aktiv & Sport', together with their starting numbers, just before a cycling competition. Seeing as none of them assumed that they would be CARRYING A SAMPLE OF LAUNDRY DETERGENT ALL FARKING RACE WITH THEM, they chugged it because they did, rightfully, assume that no company on the planet would be stupid enough to hand a thirsty cyclist a packet of LAUNDRY DETERGENT during a farking race."

The article soft-pedals what is, arguably, one of the stupidest promotional mistakes I've heard in years.

Proves how farking dumb cyclists are. I can understand a three year-pld doing that. If you're an adult though, wouldn't you know it was soap the second it hit your tongue and spit it out?

If you're in the middle of a race, you're chugging, not sipping. Open the bottle and start chugging, and you've half of it down before you realize that it's not a glucose supplement or sports drink.

Yes there are bicyclist who can be easily tricked into drinking soap. Now you kinow.

From an outsider everything about it looks like a drink. The shape of the bottle and the name suggests a Gatorade type thing but is Omo known there for just soap? Like here if Tide gave me a bottle I'd know not to drink it.

Was is das?

Lol.  Way back there was a power bar for dogs called power bone.   I tried to get a buddy of mine to try it on the trail one day on a mtb ride.   Unfortunately he became wise to it.  The dog on the label didn't help.

I'm still trying to figure out why they gave out these bottles, along with their numbers, BEFORE the race - what, did they expect the athletes to carry a small bottle around for an entire bike race? The ONLY reason you would've given them a liquid sample before the race is if you expected them to consume it before the race.

This is like handing a cup to a cyclist as he or she goes past a table, and then expecting the cyclist to look at the cup's label and ingredients before dashing the bleach sample into their eyes to cool off. Is it the cyclist's fault that he or she is now blind, or the idiot who thought handing out bleach samples during a bike race was a good idea?

pretty stupid to hand out detergent during a race, but couldn't they immediately taste something wrong?

Kramer did this with hot coffee once.
