Consumer advocacy magazine Choice are running their fifth annual, 2010 Shonky Awards. It’s a kind of name and shame exercise. It’s with great pleasure I announce that one of the Australian Skeptics’ and Victorian Skeptics’ favorite products has gained a Shonky – the Power Balance band.
Congratulations to Power Balance on wining this prestigious award (with tongue firmly in cheek).
As any Skeptic will tell you, the $2 Placebo Band works just as well as the $60 Power Balance band. They look very similar and are made from identical materials.
The Australian Skeptics and Placebo Band got a nice mention at the award ceremony, many thanks to Choice for their efforts.
