As the darker nights start drawing in, you might think about replacing your curtains.
And if you start by looking at Argos, you might notice that that a set of two-tone mustard curtains bare a striking resemblance to a pack of cigarettes.
Shoppers on Twitter were left feeling making jokes after one customer shared a picture of the window coverings, which have been reduced to £5.99 from £15.
She tweeted: "Why have Argos made curtains looking like JPS superkings?"
Another person joked: "Argos selling curtains that look like Benson and Hedges.
"It's no wonder they are trying to get shut of them in their clearance range."
The description on the website states: "Looking to liven up a room with bright and colourful curtains?
"We can help you there. These unlined 2-tone Dublin curtains are 100% cotton and will give you lots of natural light and plenty of privacy.
"We love their eyelet design for its fast and fiddle-free fitting and should disaster strike you can pop them in the wash. Like your room a bit darker?
"These curtains are also available fully lined."
But its clear for many people that they can't get away from the unfortunate comparison.
One person tweeted: "Why would they do this? ? I can't afford to smoke these days Argos is an evil temptress."
Another jokingly tweeted: " @Argos_Online can't believe you are promoting this…. Smoking kills!!!"
And the customer help team even replied – although it's fair to say they missed the joke.
They replied: "Thank you for getting in touch. I'm sorry but I'm not quite seeing the connection between the picture of our two-tone curtains and the message you have sent.
"Could you clarify what you mean by this?"
The unfortunate incident follows Gordon Ramsay facing a ruthless mocking after promoting his £19 Full English breakfast.
On Twitter, the famous chef shared a picture of the dish, adding: “The most amazing Full English… Can’t wait for you to try it from 21st September at Savoy Grill!”
One responder asked: “‘Full? As in what no one would be after eating that pitifully small plateful?”
