2014’s Biggest Market Research FAIL

Focus Group

This story came to us from Paul Z. We looked for something that we could both empathize with and would make us laugh.  Of all the entries we received, this accomplished both: we thought this was the funniest, and yet human.

Here it is:

I had a 9 year old boy throw up during a product tasting.  It was a total mess.  In a flash, the facility hostess came running in to help with damage control.  I turned towards her as she entered the room.  When I looked back toward the group, the rest of the boys had simply moved their plates a few feet away and were happily chowing down.  A few asked for seconds!

Thank you to everyone who submitted their story.  We had a great time reading your horror stories!
