Whenever we go to restaurants, there will always be a small disclaimer printed on the menu stating that the graphics are for ‘illustration purposes only’ to avoid disappointment on your end if the product looks vastly different from what was marketed.
A deflated shark
Unfortunately for a netizen named Ms Ling, she experienced it firsthand after buying a shark-shaped bun from IKEA.
In a video posted on Xiao Hong Shu, she showed how the bun was flattened beyond recognition and did not look anything like what was shown on the poster.
The adorable shark buns filled with red bean paste are part of IKEA Malaysia’s School Holiday Special Menu and are only available while stocks last.
Speaking to WeirdKaya, Ms Ling said that she bought the bun on June 20 at IKEA Damansara and aside from its appearance, the taste will still okay for her.
‘Your shark looks like it just fought’
The post has since garnered over 700 likes at the time of writing, with many commenting that the shark looked like it had emerged from a fierce fight.
One netizen even cheekily told Ms Ling to wait for the shark to recover as it just had a plastic surgery.
Another netizen believed to have had bought the same bun days ago also wrote that hers looked like Ms Ling’s too.
