It’s about time to make certain health related commercials as graphic as possible for a better good. The Washington, DC- based Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is going all the way anti McDonald by targeting the deadly health effects of fast food in a new hard-hitting television commercial. Graphically linking heart disease and death to McDonald’s hamburgers, the 39-second ad shows a grieving widow weeping over the body of a middle-aged man in the morgue. He has a half-eaten hamburger in his hand.
The commercial represent the iconic golden arches appear over the words “I was lovin’ it,” as “High cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart attacks, and death”. It encourages people to go vegetarian.
In 2003, McDonald’s earned $3.5 billion dollars in revenues from the sale of their child-oriented “Happy Meals.” In the meantime, one out of every three American children is overweight.
It’s obvious what fast food is doing to us. Well, to you. I barely touch them. Please, try to quite them and quite this. Do it for the sake of the next generation.
