"You are being lied to" exposes?

Dearest Hive Mind,
I watched this:
Which made sense after seeing this:
Basically we have a fraudulent process where glued up sesame seeds, RAW patties that are trimmed with scissors and bended and "syringe injected condiments" (Never thought I'll type that...) is the norm.
I am not naive, I know that food shots are sexed up but the depth, ingenuity and details of the technique are amusing, enlightening and mind bending.
I saw somewhere about how to make all those weight loss/muscle building before and after shots really stand out. The before picture will have a sour faced, hunched individual in a dull colored image. Where as in the after picture, the colors are more vivid, the posture is correct, there is a smile, hairs are removed (men), and the whole body is bathed in oil to give that healthy spark. Even with a relatively minor actual muscle gain/weight loss the difference will seem striking.
So what are other examples of less than known "gray" marketing/fraud/touchups/lies/whathaveyous that are exposed in a brief and hopefully graphic manner?
Doesn't have to food related.
Could be a video, a picture or even an essay.
Bonus points for everyday type of things that we pass by without giving a second thought to.
