I bet they honor it. You think they really want to get in to a big fight with people over their false advertising?
I'd imagine the intern who F'd up the posting is going to get fired... but that's about it.
Nope. Those who think they will honor it have no clue about Obey sales.

False Advertising Laws have nothing to do with Obey sales...

it's not false advertising, nothing was advertised. there was a typo in the product description and they have the right to cancel any order at any time for any reason:

http://store.obeygiant.com/pages/policy
TERMS & CONDITIONS

We reserve the right, at any time after receipt of your order, to accept or decline your order for any reason. We reserve the right, at any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any item.
you agree to those terms when buying something from their site. it's a losing bet to think any order of more than 1 will be honored.

I don't know the legal term, but companies are allowed to make mistakes in their advertising and are not held to those mistakes. It happens all the time in print advertising.
