Whitney Cummings is a Hollywood multi-hyphenate, with acting, writing, stand-up comedy, podcasting and producing on her resume. And she’s added a new skill recently as a “board-certified plastic surgeon,” or so she says in a Liquid Death campaign.

Except that’s not true, of course.

Instead, she’s taking her first starring turn in a high-concept Liquid Death ad that mashes up a sustainability message with a ridiculous premise: Cummings, posing as a medical professional in a crisp white lab coat, presides over a surgery center that repurposes plastic waste, turning it into implants for butts, chins and calves.

Spoiler alert—Cummings dips into her own supply, showing off three sets of a certain body part in the video’s final reveal.
