Following on from the previous story, the fact that some people will believe absolutely anything they hear/see is illustrated very nicely by this .
Basically, an Australian artist created a fake advert for a fake drug to treat a fake, truly non-existent illness, and a quarter of a million people have already hit the website. The fake drug is even turning up integrated into real Web sites relating to real medical problems........
The mind boggles.
I specially loved this bit of the web site :-
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Problems can be avoided if you take HAVIDOL only when you are able to immediately benefit from its effects.
To fully benefit from HAVIDOL patients are encouraged to engage in activities requiring exceptional mental, motor, and consumptive coordination.
HAVIDOL is not for you if you have abruptly stopped using alcohol or sedatives. Havidol should be taken indefinitely.
Side effects may include mood changes, muscle strain, extraordinary thinking, dermal gloss, impulsivity induced consumption, excessive salivation, hair growth, markedly delayed sexual climax, inter-species communication, taste perversion, terminal smile, and oral inflammation.
Very rarely users may experience a need to change physicians.
Talk to your doctor about HAVIDOL
