In one of the more refreshing advertisements we’ve seen lately, this brutally honest Coca-Cola ad that was created by merging together multiple commercials, offers up the truth regarding the role Coke has played in the obesity of America.
Obviously not officially made by the Coca-Cola company, this informational video provides the average soda drinker a glimpse into the downsides of drinking the sugary beverages.
“For over 125 years, we’ve been bringing people together,” it starts off innocently.
“Today we’d like to come together on something that concerns all of us: obesity,” it continues on in a jarring fashion.
The video proceeds to get to the most important aspects of the issue as they discuss exactly what it is that soda is doing to our bodies.
“Consuming large amounts of rapidly-digested sugar and high fructose corn syrup causes a spike in blood sugar and insulin, which can lead to inflammation and insulin resistance, both of which may increase your risk of stroke, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer.”
As they continue on in this brilliantly edited video, the final advice they drive home is straight and to the point, leaving no question as to how they feel about the brand.
“If you choose to live a healthy lifestyle, then you should not be drinking any of our products,” they say
“If you drink Coke, you’ll get fatter and fatter. The solution is simple and it’s right in front of your eyes: don’t drink Coke. It’s killing you and your family. Coca-Cola. We are partially responsible for America’s obesity problem.”
Please remember that while this ad is factually correct, at the end of the day we are responsible for our own bodies and what we consume.
What did you think of the brutally honest ad against Coca-Cola? Does this make you thin twice about drinking soda?
