When things go wrong, my husband often likes to say, “Nice idea. Shame about the execution.”
I believe it comes from soccer.
Well, sometimes things are the opposite.
Sometimes they are a terrible idea, fabulously executed.
Thus began the r/ATBGE subreddit, for exhibiting just this sort of situation.
Here are some of the most amazingly bad ideas that make you wonder who said, “Yes!”
1. Balloon Art Crucifixion
I think this one speaks for itself, really.
2. More Jesus Art
Masking tape and paper…
Only slightly less horrifying than the circus balloons.
3. Finger Hands Squared
I am honestly not sure why anyone needed the originals.
But these… well… the stuff of nightmares?
4. Toilet Kisser
I take it back. THIS is the stuff of nightmares.
I’m guessing this won’t survive a post-COVID world.
Located at a bar in Shinjuku, Japan. There is a bathroom with a GAINT head located infront of the toilet. Activated by the pressure from the seat, the face sings a strange drunken tune and slowly moves towards you… Making the room smaller and smaller, until its lips ‘kiss’ your knees from ATBGE
5. Pogo Plunger
Speaking of toilets…
This comes from the school of “everything should be fun” I guess.
6. Rubber Chicken Bumper
I’m not sure what there is to say.
Seemed like a good idea at the time?
7. Grasshopper Restaurant
This feels like someone just couldn’t pass up the opportunity for a laugh.
8. Beard Haircut
I wish there was a front view too.
If my husband did this (even as a joke), I would burst into tears.
9. Festive Chest Hair
This, on the other hand, he’s welcome to try.
It feels like it would take a bit of skill to pull this off.
10. Getting Cute With Useless Masks
The value of an unlined crochet mask aside, it’s a clever design.
11. Flesh-Colored Mask
This one, though, feels extremely creepy.
It reminds me of the Suliban from the Star Trek: Enterprise series.
12. Literal Tramp Stamp
Ahh the old classic. In more ways than one!
Those were all pretty terrible ideas.
I’m impressed with the skill and dedication employed to pull them off though!
