Redone “Hilltop” Coca-Cola Ad Tries To Convince You To Drink Less Soda [VIDEO]
Back in 1971 there was an ad from Coca-Cola called the "Hilltop" Ad that was all about unity and bringing people together. An organization called the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPITV) decided to parody the video in an effort to get people to stop drinking so much soda and even started #changethetune
The YouTube video description says:
Classic coke ad remade with real people suffering from diseases related to sugary beverage consumption. Their clear message: “Please drink soda less. It isn’t happiness.”
These beverages are currently the #1SOURCE OF CALORIES in the American diet. Please share this with anybody you know who could benefit from the reality of drinking too much sugar.
Now I understand that soda isn't good for me, but I also think we (as a society) need to take more responsibility for what we are doing to our bodies. I'm not going to drink less soda because of this ad, but I already don't drink a lot because I know it isn't good for me but I enjoy a Coke or soda on occasion. Let me know what you think in the comments below. Here is the parody ad and the original ad.
