Stop!! Don’t drink that!

Here’s a good advertisement for water. Really, once we started thinking that “treats” were “staples”, this became inevitable.

I used to drink a lot of fruit juice, iced tea and pop, but this stuff is so much worse.

FYI: their recommended substitutes may be sponsored. And though they recommend “diet” sweet drinks, I recommend weaning off the sweet drinks entirely and going for water when you’re thirsty. Sweet drinks are treats, in my opinion, requiring some kind of physical activity to counter their effects.

    The artwork in this is really great from my perspective; if it doesn’t make your jaw drop, I would be shocked. I didn’t realise until I got near the end that they were put in order of least number of calories to most number of calories. The Starbucks cup beside eight and a half scoops of ice cream is pretty sobering. Makes me really glad I have only ever ordered peppermint tea there.

    It makes the ice cream look positively altruistic, doesn’t it?

    In a way. The ice cream isn’t pretending to be anything other than ice cream.
