Stove Advertising Deception

Post by zelph » Thu Aug 16, 2012 9:50 pm

Total deception in marketing. Watch the 0:9 time mark and see the stove jets light up fast and then seconds later says the stove primes in 1 min 45 seconds. There is pop-up note that tells how long it takes to prime.

You can see the guy squirt fuel in and then immediately put a lighter to it and poof it lights and then the jets ignite 2 seconds later.

Deception at it's finest.

If you know of anything similar, post it here.

1 minute 45 is slow. I've built similar stoves out of "Venom" energy drink cans that blossom from stone cold in 45 seconds to 1 minute 10 seconds.
