Back to the drawing board! These design fails will make the mind boggle - including VERY impractical toilets and packaging that makes bread look mouldy

People have taken to Reddit to share the worst design fails they've seen across the globe - and some of the results are spectacular.
Advertising is one of the most crucial jobs in getting a product sold, so when the ideas fall flat, the end product can be unfortunate.
That was the case for may people on the hilarious list compiled by PizzaBottle, with one user sharing a picture of bread with its see-through packaging daubed in green logos, which made it seem like the product was mouldy.
And newspapers can fall foul from bad design, too. Another spectacular fail in the list depicts the front page of a Canadian tabloid.
The headline story is about a double murder in Truro, a town in Nova Scotia, Canada, while the picture below is a man devouring berries in a blueberry eating competition which looks like a gruesome story.
Some of the other snaps show advertising fails - and even superheros don't escape, with Superman and Spiderman made to look decidedly less heroic with bad design flaws.
