It sure can!

If you're showing the first 20% of the features and giving the impression
that you can just add the remaining features but the architecture is such a
mess that it procludes that, that would be a lie.

I bet everyone that's been in this industry for 20 years has seen a few
cooked or rigged demos where the intent was to give the impression of more
capability than actually existed.  Usually the demo code isn't outright
fradulent (I've seen that too though), but a certain set of inputs were
carefully chosen where everything was known to work, deliberately giving the
impression that the system worked for other cases just as well when it
actually didn't.
