The New, Honest Coca Cola Ad

This is a re-made video. It’s what Coca Cola were probably REALLY thinking when they made their latest cringe-inducing ad.

The Coca Cola Company is as truthful and health-bringing as any tobacco company.

PS: Here’s another very honest version of the ad.

More about the free updates that people get.

  1. The marketers at the junk food companies are shameless liars.

  2. Yes. But you know: "Fool me once..."

    Another way to perpetuate that obesity is a math problem not a biological one. Calories are calories no matter where they come from.

    One thing I find interesting....

    The people behind this "translation" are the same people Tom Naughton talks about in "Fathead, the Movie."

    They are very anti-fat, especially saturated fat, and want people to cut back on its consumption. To them, a low carb diets is a health hazard.and a low fat, high carb diet is the only way to go.

    They want laws against high-fat, high sodium foods.

    While we may like what they say against sugary drinks, we have to be careful not to give them too much credit or they may get their way and force us to go on a low fat, high carb diet.

    Glad to see the "guy from CSPI" is finally fighting the right battle instead of further demozing fat (although I suspect they still do that too)

  6. Yes, maybe there's some hope for the guy! :)

    This is really quite shocking. The thought of people being paid to think this sort of nonsens up, is repulsive. How do those people look in the mirror?
  8. My comment there, in case they delete it:

    But even CSPI's take on it is incorrect. The problem is not "liquid" calories, as if they are somehow magically more accessible. The biggest problem is the Standard American Diet, which needlessly villifies fats (especially healthy saturated fat), and emphasizes carbs, particularly in the form of genetically-modified grains. Get yourself on a low-carb, moderate protein, high (good) fat diet, and the pounds just start melting away.

    There's some truth in the position that liquid calories are a problem on their own. No, they're not more accessible, but it's far easier to consume more of them in a shorter amount of time. Just compare orange juice and oranges. At breakfast, people easily consume several glasses of juice, but they would struggle consuming the number of oranges required to make that amount of juice.

    Mostly eliminating sugary drinks would definitely be a big step in the right direction and still be acceptable to many because it fits reasonably well within the (flawed) guidelines the US government sets. As long as the USDA still spews forth its fat=bad,grains=good garbage, it'll take a lot of time for most people to accept any advise that falls far outside those guidelines (at least until Dr. Davis manages to convince Oprah)
