NYC unveils even more repulsive anti-fat ad

New York City's health department grossed people out this summer with anti-obesity ads on the subway showing globs of human fat being poured from a soda bottle. Now, they've managed to one-up themselves with a video version. Dr. Thomas Farley, the city's health commissioner, tells Gothamist: "This video is playful, but its message is serious." Playful is possibly the last adjective I would have come up with. Via AgencySpy.
