A PSA for childhood obesity? At least it was funny.

I'm put in mind of a physics joke: "Assume a spherical cow..."

My jaw was dropped for so long that I accidentally drooled on myself. Wtf was that.

Yes, filled with so many stereotypes about fat. If we all eat fast food, we'll all become bloated like beach balls. Clearly all fat people eat junkfood all the time and skinny people are so because they never eat junk. And all fat people are clumsy, klutzy and incompetent... Well done animation, just too bad they're using their talents for evil instead of for good.

Huh. You carried away a totally different interpretation than I did.

I didn't see it as being about obesity at all. I saw it as riffing on a common physics trope ("What is the terminal velocity of a cow?" "Well, if you assume a spherical cow, the equation becomes...")

Considering that the animals also behave like they're made of rubber, the mapping onto "this is about obesity" doesn't sound plausible to me.

Sorry, my reply is informed by the fact that this video is being shared on Facebook under the title "If animals ate fast food." I can't tell what the intent of the original makers was.

Funny, I definitely got something somehow fat-shamey out of it. But it was adorable and hilarious just for the physics of it, wish it didn't have the other overtone :\
