#9 HeadOn



Ever heard of the “placebo effect”? Headon! This placebo made of wax was a large scale psychological experiment that was largely successful in proving that people will do anything that is said on the television and in making money. This $8 tube filled with wax was sold more than six million times in 2006 alone mostly due to the commercial which evidently hypnotized its viewers by stating “HeadOn. Apply directly to the forehead” and people did it more than six million times in one year!



#8 Doggles



Are you worried about your doggie’s eyes? Here’s Douggles to the rescue. This commercial brand of sunglasses for dogs in the form of tinted googles, which are both fashionable and functional, protect your dog’s eyes from dust, sand, wind, water, and bullets (the last one only holds true when thrown by hand.) Doggles, LLC has sold millions of pairs to pooches at $19.90. That is a good fetch.
