Can you believe how many mistakes and even typos big brands make despite the huge teams of professional people who should avoid such fail? Nexter.org gathered just some of the most interesting cases happened in history!

Taylor Swift merchandise

Fans have taken to social media to post pictures of a typo on their Taylor Swift merchandise!

On the clothing, the first word of the lyric from Taylor’s latest single ME! ‘You’re the only one of you, Baby that’s the fun of you’ is mis-spelt ‘your’e’.

The blunder is all the more entertaining given the song also contains the line: “Hey, kids! Spelling is fun!”

The mistake isn’t included on every top, though, leaving some with the typo to hope they may be in for a treat from Taylor.

The A$50 ($34.9) banknote released last October misspells the word “responsibility.” The note features a portrait of the country’s first female parliamentarian, Edith Cowan, and the error appears in microprint featuring excerpts of her first speech to the Western Australian Parliament.

Nearly 400 million of the notes were printed, with 46 million in use, according to CNN, putting the total value of the currency in circulation at about A$2.3 billion.

ASOS ‘limited edition’

Having printed ‘oniline’ instead of ‘online’ of thousands of bags, ASOS admitted their mistake and called it ‘a limited edition’.

Call it a limited edition, everyone will want to have one for sure!

NASA Mariner 1 missing hyphen

Mariner 1  has a mission to get as close as it can to Venus. Due to one of the most expensive typos in the history, it had never reached the Earth atmosphere.

Why? A missing hyphen in the coding used to set trajectory and speed caused an explosion before it was launched.  This fail cost NASA $80 million.

One missing hyphen! Think twice before typing something.

Are you interested in ‘erotic’ vacation?

In 1988, one travel agency made a mistake in the ad banner for the phone book. In the ‘specialization’ field, they wanted to put ‘exotic’ destinations, but made a typo – ‘eRotic’ destinations.

Hilarious fail, isn’t it? But it cost company tons of money as they lost half of their clients after this ad.

Typo in the URL

Every time when a person makes a typo in the URL, they enter the wrong website costing a lot of money of the original website.

On the other hand, the website you get to by an accident earns more on the ads. For instance, Google gets $500 million on the websites entered because of a typo in the URL.

Racist pasta recipe

The Pasta Bible published by Penguin Australia once made a hilarious, but the really offensive typo.

In one of the pasta recipes, they mistakenly printed “ground black people” instead of “ground black pepper.”

The typo cost $20,000 as Penguin Australia had to destroy all printed copies.
