Sorry, but there’s no such thing as Krispy Kreme flavoured lube

The buzzkills at fact-checking website Snopes have debunked a viral Twitter photo showing an alleged collaboration between lube makers K-Y and Krispy Kreme.

The photo did the rounds on Twitter late last month. Some of the posts racked up thousands of likes.

They all used the same image, showing a box of special Krispy Kreme-flavoured K-Y lubricant titled “Hole Glaze” on a shop shelf next to the more vanilla varieties.

On the box, the product promises a “warm & sticky glazed doughnut flavor”.

But unfortunately it’s not true: there’s no Krispy Kreme K-Y limited edition lubricant.

The fact-checkers at Snopes looked into it and determined the image was a very convincing Photoshop job.

They asked K-Y, who confirmed the brand doesn’t make any such product.

After Snopes published its article, a man by the name of Brian Lambeth came forward and admitted he’d created the image back in June to celebrate National Donut Day.

He sent Snopes a link to his original Facebook posting for proof, and said he also hid a social media handle in one of the barcodes.

“I wanted to fess up as the creator of the lube image,” he explained to the website.

“I made this on National Doughnut day as a joke and posted to my own Facebook page in June this year.

“I’m from Winston-Salem, NC – the corporate headquarters for Krispy Kreme.

“I’m exposed to a great deal more of KK’s advertising because of that. Anyway, all in good fun.”
