Fake Reviews

In the spirit of April Fools, I thought this should be possibly given an entry. Its quite a troll when you can find it, but I’m not too sure if its a common thing. The only logged instance of it that I already know of on this site is The Princess Promenade Troll. Other examples of sites that I’ve seen recently are for this BIC for Her Pen and the reviews on the Solar Charger Android App. Does anyone else know of any other examples, or is this not as common as I thought it should be?

yes, there are lost of fake reviews for “schweizer taschenmesser giant”, i didn’t find it on non-germna amazon though…

there’s also a confirmed entry for “three wolf moon”,
a cheesy t-shirt that got many fake reviews

also fake reviews are common with collector’s editions of games that come with useless stuff or games that have disappointed the fanssuch as simcity 5 or battlefield 3 (origin…)

I knew there was another one of these circulating somewhere in teh submission pool. The Banana Slicer is another prime example of this I think. So, should I go ahead and make and article, and if I do does anyone want to help me?

Make sure to check out the best of craigslist. As for search results on Google, look for “customer review comedy” or something similar.

We have two other pages noting similar phenomena on other sites. Maybe it could potentially be a parent entry for memes that spring up this way.
