OUR CHRISTMAS GIFT WAS A COUNTERFEIT | HOW TO SPOT A FAKE YETI! (12.27.17)

[Peter] So one of these is counterfeit, one is real. [Mary] Okay, the plot has thickened. We have officially labeled the counterfeit Yetis as a Feti. ♬ Don’t you think we’re better together ♬ ♬ Oh Honey ♬ ♬ I think we are ♬ Good morning guys and Merry Christmas again! We are headed over to my mom’s house to celebrate. All of our family is coming. I got my Christmas sweater on, how about that. I’m a nutcracker. I’m a nutcracker! And we are just getting ready. It’s been a coughy morning for Mary. Her lungs are pretty junky and… How you feeling? So funny. Oh, Christmas tree! I was like…I don’t really wanna, I was like, I want to wear this, but we’re probably gonna take pictures as a family. Mary was like, just bring another shirt. So that’s what I’m doing and that Christmas tree looks pretty magical in the background and I was playing with our train this morning. Watching it go around the tree, which was so magical. [Peter] Good morning, bonesy. [Mary] Good morning! [Both] Stretch! [Mary smooching] All right guys, we had our family gathering tonight, and it was crazy. How many people were here? Eleven. There were way more than eleven! Eighteen! Eighteen people. There were eleven though. [scattered responses] And all the kids counted for like five people. And um… It was, it was a lot of fun, but we had this white elephant gift exchange. [Mary] Look at this, look at this. [Peter] Guys, look what’s happening here. [Peter] So one of the hot items of the exchange were these Yeti tumblers and [Peter] we have discovered that one of them is a counterfeit. [Mary coughing] So, if you got a Yeti for Christmas… they ordered it on Amazon. Here’s how you can…We are sleuthing right now. Oh, wait a minute [Mary] Well, the first clue… was Kevin realized there were typos. [Peter] He was reading the label, and so one of these is counterfeit, one is real. [Mary] So, wash bafor. [Peter] Wash bafor. [Mary] And then… [Peter] Orcleaners. Don’t use bleach orcleaners. [Mary] And this is the real one. [Mary] Before. [Peter] Okay, so Kevin what’s going on with the lids here? [Kevin] Alright.. See that gap there? Here’s another one. This same gap. [Kevin] Look at the gap there. [Peter] Oh. [Peter] So this is the counterfeit? Chunkier E and the leaner E. [background chatter] [Peter] But they feel the same, right? The letters, his is…the fake one is raised higher. [Peter] So, the fake one the letters are raised higher. So what do we say in the response? [Peter] Can you put a picture? [Mary] Oh… Well, I can get a ruler. So, we’re reporting this on Amazon. [laughter] So that we can get a refund. And then there’s an imperfection in the bottom. Right there. Yep, there’s one right there. Roll it. [Peter] What kind of? Oh, like a little speck out of it? [Peter] Oh, yeah in the rim. Yep [Peter] Wow. Never been dropped. [Peter] Guys, this is Gracie, and this is Abbie. They’re so sweet. Yeah. The E. [Peter] Yep. [Mary] Can I see the E? [Mary] So…oh yeah. Guys, we are having way too much fun discovering counterfeit. Basically, the person who brought this item doesn’t want to contribute a counterfeit item. Yes, Joe…Joe is, um… He’s contacting Amazon right now. But um…This is, this is pretty fun. It looks like we need to give Joe a new- And Joe, didn’t you say you paid more on Amazon for the counterfeit? [clicks tongue] So, check your Yeti. See if there’s misspellings on the label. Just saying. We got your back. [Mary] Okay, the plot has thickened. Instead of submitting it online we’ve decided to call Amazon. [Mary laughing] [Mary] Look, they’re still comparing over there. [Peter] I think you need to get a closer. Look, he’s using a fork as a diagram! [Mary laughing] A fork as a diagram? [Mary] Oh, you’ve got… We just discovered that it’s made out of different metal too. [Mary] Oh! This is 1810. Same color. We’re not going to do the acid test, because I could prove it with a drop of muriatic acid. [Mary giggling] Two minutes. Wow. [Mary] Wowsy. I don’t know if you guys were here a couple of years ago. They were making cotton candy. [laughing] They made cotton candy. I wasn’t here for that one, but… This is uh, this is pretty intense. We’ve got a ruler involved, er, a tape measure. [laughing] What makes your family gatherings interesting? Let me know in the comments. [Peter] So, we ordered the Yeti tumbler 10-ounce. It was our last order and we are holding that side by side with a Yeti that we got locally and it…and it seems to be a counterfeit. Has misspellings on the label and imperfections in the product itself. [Amazon] Okay, so basically you’re saying that the item itself is a fake. Correct. [Amazon] And you’re not satisfied with the quality. Okay. [Amazon] Okay, sir. I really do apologize for the inconvenience here. [more chatter about the fake Yeti] [Amazon] Alright, so what I’m doing now is I’m going to give you guys a refund. So are…do you, what do you do from here in terms of that seller. Do you report this? [Amazon] I can make a note, for sure. Yes. Yeah. I just think for your sake, I don’t think you guys want to be selling counterfeit ones. [Amazon] Yeah, okay. Okay, thank you so much! [Amazon] You’re welcome, you’re welcome. Thank you and I hope you enjoy the rest of your night, okay? All right you too, bye-bye. [Mary] Aww, she was nice. So she wants us to leave a review? [Mary] I feel so honored. Our stickers are on… [Bart] Yeah, no, I’m going to go get my other one. [Mary] That’s awesome. [Mary] Bart made the commitment. He’s putting…he’s putting a [Mary] Whaley love you sticker on. Very nice. They build them so that The cap is like mine screws [Mary] Read it again. Because the seller probably… [Mary] More researching going on. [Mary] So you’re back on the original post where you bought it from? Yeah. [Mary] it looks like there’s a temperature test going on here. [Mary] So I think um… [Mary] we’ll continue that and [Mary] we’ll update you if there’s any… I think we got a little too into the comparison of the Feti and the Yeti. We have officially labeled the counterfeit Yeti as a Feti. [Mary] And even the sticker that came inside you can tell it was scanned. [Peter] Yeah, let’s… [Mary] Actually… [Peter] We can’t just say that well. [Mary] We’ll actually show you. Joe, where’s your computer? [Peter] So, the lighting is terrible. [Mary] It’s probably too dark for you guys to see the difference, but there are differences. [Peter] This is the Yeti. [Peter] This is the Feti. It is clear that this is a scan of this. Some of the detail is lost. Like a little [Peter] speck, you see…that, uh well… [Peter] Take my word for it. We were actually gonna talk today about… Like we were going to talk on the vlog about… Some of our thoughts on like family gatherings and like holiday gatherings or anything like that with chronic illness. And… we’re exhausted, so we’re not gonna like have any huge discussion about it but I will say this. Some days when you go to family gatherings like you have adrenaline and even if your body wasn’t feeling great earlier that day somehow you’re like oh, I’m feeling okay, but today it was kind of the opposite. Like, I thought like it was gonna be fine, whatever, and all of a sudden I felt feverish and like just like ugh. I kept thinking I could go upstairs and take a bath right now like during our family gathering. Which would… not really be a good idea. Where’s Mary? She’s in the bath. But um… Later in evening I stopped feeling feverish. I don’t know if I ended up having a fever, but I just did not feel good. My lungs did not feel good. It is what it is. I think that’s probably like the bottom line for how to deal with chronic illness and family gatherings. It is what it is. You’ll feel however you feel. You’ll make the most of it or you won’t be able to go, and it is what it is. That’s kind of how it is. It’s true. What do you think? I think… It’s tricky. Yeah, it’s tricky. Life is tricky, but… you figure it out. Yeah, you figure out what works for you. Here’s our tip. Figure it out. When did I say that? During the port video. Yeah, you were like…um… If you have trouble with this just figure it out. [Peter chuckling] My bad! We’re ready to go to sleep, so we’re gonna say. [Both] As always, we will see you tomorrow. Good night! ♬ [Mary talking as Ollie] Good night everybody! ♬♬ (smooches)
