WWWal-Mart

Wal-Mart Tries to Be MySpace. Seriously: "It's a quasi-social-networking site for teens designed to allow them to 'express their individuality,' yet it screens all content, tells parents their kids have joined and forbids users to e-mail one another. Oh, and it calls users 'hubsters' -- a twist on hipsters that proves just how painfully uncool it is to try to be cool. "

If they hadn't tried so hard to market this to teens and they didn't really labor over the details this wal-mart site could actually have had a shot at being ironicly popular.
