NYC health department battles sugary pop with gross-out ad

In an attempt to dissuade people from drinking sugary, calorific beverages, the New York City health department has released a nauseating video in which a man opens what appears to be a can of pop and then pours goopy fat into a glass. His attempt to drink it leaves him with fat globules all over his face. The message: Drinking just one can of soda a day can add up to 10 pounds of weight in a year.
