Storytelling Within the Web

Okay, so this assignment definitely intimidated me when I first read its instructions. However, as soon as I got the X-Ray Goggles from Hackasaurus on my bookmark bar and played with it on a few sites, like Craig’s List and Facebook, I was completely comfortable messing around with a website. So, I went on and searched for this one product I hated when I was in high school: the Griffin FM transmitter.

Now, why did I have this product when I hated it so much? Well, my car does not have an auxiliary input thingy, so I am unable to plug my iPhone into my car and listen to my favourite jams. Frustrated, I googled around for a product to help solve my problem. In comes the God-awful demonic FM transmitter. I was so excited when I got it in the mail. I immediately plugged it in to test it, and oh my goodness, it was terrible. First, the transmitter claims it would find the best FM station to tune into so you can listen to your music. Uh, nope. Mine would tune into the most random stations, and would just have random static in the background. On every station it chose. And it wasn’t even random static every once in a while. Nope. It was awful continuous static that would not budge. Then, after a week or two, the wiring started to break. Plus, it would continuously charge my iPhone and pretty much killed my battery.

Alright, so I’ll stop ranting about this terrible product, and show you my work.

So yes, I used the X-Ray Goggles to transform the Griffin FM Transmitter’s Amazon page. It went from this:

As you can tell, I had a lot of fun messing around with this page.

What do you guys think? Do you have a product you hate so much that you would love to rewrite its description? Or am I the only one that’s this super bitter?
