This was an ad I stumbled upon this morning-apparently it’s supposed to make kids not eat junk food. I watched it and thought that the girl with the fat poured in her jacket is probably slowed down because the grease will make her slip and fall if it spills out-not because it’s weighing her down. Also, it’s kind of boring.

I feel like ads just telling kids not to do something aren’t very effective. Maybe they should give support to the kids because there is a deeper issue than just, “this kid is eating chips instead of bananas.” Instead of an ad showing two girls racing each other, one with grease in her shirt the other-no grease; How bout an ad with a website to go to or a phone number to call that has some way to get support for the issues they have?

How bout that smiley face host, huh?
