Dave and Chuck the Freak

The internet got duped by a fake mask for babies called “Baby Mute” that supposedly quiets their crying by 87%.

A comedian in Canada named Brad Gosse was the mastermind behind it. He actually created a website for it that makes it look real, so people online thought it was. It even went as far as giving “endorsements” from doctors with names liked ‘York Hunt’ and ‘Michael Lit’ … say them out loud to yourself.

The item got a ton of attention. Mostly parents outraged about the idea of putting a muzzle on their child or found the item to be a form a child abuse.

It must have impressed some others though, because more than a few of them want someone to actually make it now.
