Anti-Soft Drink Commercial Shows Man Eating Sugar Packets

There's this new commercial for the Nation Movement Against Soft Drink Consumption and it shows a man sitting at a bar tearing open sugar packets and pouring them into his mouth. In the ad, the people around him are staring at him like he's a freak while they're drinking sodas. The commercial asks "If it's weird to eat sixteen packets of sugar why would you drink it?" While it's true that soft drinks have too much sugar and sugar is bad for you, I think the point of this commercial is a little off. Most drinks and foods are made up of things that would seem ridiculous to eat individually like a sugar packet. It would be weird to watch someone eating Iron powder, but that doesn't make someone think twice about eating a steak. Eating little dried out barley and hops at a bar would look weird, but guess they put in beer! And actually a lot of people eat sugar packets. I used to do that as a kid and yes people did stare. And yes, it did hurt.
