New Coca Cola Ad

By January 15, 2013

Follow me on:

The Coca Cola company is well-known for supplying us with an unending flow of sugary beverages that don't have much to offer nutritionally other than water and calories from sugar. Usually too many calories, and it's certainly possible that sucking down all those extra empty calories has contributed to obesity. Of course, to be fair, the Coca Cola companies also sell zero-calorie beverages, like Diet Coke and Zero-Calorie Vitamin Water.

Now Coca Cola has a new ad campaign aimed at obesity. They acknowledge that consuming too much soda adds calories and contributes to obesity (along with other sources of calories). The Coca Cola company says it wants to be part of the conversation on obesity, while critics call it damage control and spin.

Here's their press release and link to their ad:

The Coca-Cola Company Reinforces Its Commitment to Help America in the Fight Against Obesity

Take a look at the ad and tell me what you think.
