Do you think this video is effective???

The non-profit group says:  Not just a PSA, but a video created by a man who used to work FOR the agency creating the ads for Coca-Cola.  It wasn't so bad when soft drinks were the occasional treat. But now sugary drinks are the number one source of calories in the American diet. With one third of America overweight and another third obese, it's a wonder anyone is still swallowing what the soda companies are selling.

It certainly makes you think!  My kids liked it up until the chainsaw!  LOL!  I do like that they are trying to get people more aware of the dangers.

It's cute and i do think it could be affective but if for kids, i think its a little too graphic and adult. The thing that's need to be taught is moderation. That is where the issue lies imo in this country. I really wonder if one day we will be like the peopke in wall e.

I think kids drinking soda is more of the parent's problem, so this video is effective in that it would target teens and adults.

True but we should also be starting from when they are young.
