I happened to see this commercial and I kept on waiting for it to be about how these two should put down the food and go for a jog…and then it’s about how you can consult with your doctor from home. WHAT?!!! These two don’t need to be inside MORE, they need to be outside more, getting exercising and losing weight.
A health care provider using two obese actors to sell a new feature? What?!!! I’m seriously baffled. There is a very real obesity epidemic going on. It’s not something to take lightly. Just like holding that fat woman in the air is not light. We shouldn’t be joking about this. And I’m tired of bigger people complaining about fat shaming. Most obese people are obese because of their personal decisions on what to eat and how much to exercise. YES, I know obesity is also related to economics. But, looking at their house, these two aren’t poor.
So there you have it. A health care company using two fat Americans to sell a new product. I kept on waiting for the doctor to tell them to dance more, eat less, and lose some weight. And how pathetic that these two were cast as “average Americans.” The average American is them? The guy has a huge gut that his plaid shirt can’t cover and the wife is the size of a house! She can’t even wear pants, she has to wear sweatpants because she’s so large!
May 7, 2015. We’ve truly reached a new low point. My lord, two fat people selling a convenient new feature. Should a health care provider be concerned with making their clients HEALTHIER and giving them straight talk: YOU TWO ARE OVERWEIGHT AND NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT IMMEDIATELY. Not create some new system to make their cushy lives cushier. That’s why they’re fat – fat on the ease of living in America today, if you have money.
