German Fatshaming Commercial Triggers Obesity Apologists




This commercial by the German supermarket chain EDEKA has triggered obesity apologists on Twitter and facebook. Many are calling for a boycott of the company---I think it's beatiful.

Great Youtube-Comment:

Quote:So unfair that the boy has a better life by making individual decisions. The government should take away his wings distribute them equally for all people. Besides, I feel triggered by this fatshaming.

Ohshit

The fat bull dog was pretty cool looking though.

Brilliant, but the triggering will be epic. Being in Germany, it would have been even funnier if the video ended in Fat Town, with a rapefugee shouting "ALLAHU ACKBAR!" and blowing himself up. Just for accuracy.

Germany gets a great deal of flack, and rightfully so, especially politically, but in everyday culture and practise amongst themselves they can be ruthlessly blunt and objective. This and many other German ads would never pass in the states. I hope EDEKA (one of my favorite supermarket chains actually) doesn't buckle on this.

RE: German Fatshaming Commercial Triggers Obesity Apologists
Thats a glorious commercial right there

"In primitive times women clung to the strongest males for protection. They did not take any chances with a nobody, low-status male who did not have the means to house them, protect them, and feed them and their offspring. High-status males displayed their prowess through their kick-ass attitudes. They were not afraid to think for themselves and make their own decisions. They did not give a crap about what other people in the tribe thought. That kind of attitude is associated with the kind of men women find attractive. It may not be politically correct to say but who cares. It is common sense and it's true- and always will be."

Amazing commercial, understandable in any language. I'm off to the local US ALDI to buy a bucket o' berries now!

How long until fatties start calling this company literally hitler?

Women in countries like Saudi Arabia and India need feminism. Women in the USA need to answer my fucking texts.

Great commercial. Would it be too pedantic to point out that blueberries don't actually grow on trees?

Never mind... googling reveals that scientists are already working on making blueberries grow on trees. Fucking scientists.

For our non-German speakers, the sentence at the end means "Eat like the person you want to be".

RE: German Fatshaming Commercial Triggers Obesity Apologists
There was a time just a few years ago when obesity was called an "epidemic" and it was a commonly understood issue that Americans were eating unhealthy diets and getting overweight and unhealthy. Somehow over the years this has turned a 180 and being overweight is no longer considered bad or unhealthy, but what is bad and unhealthy is addressing it. Weird times.

What a beautiful ad. A reminder that fitness and imagination are tied. Fatness and laziness are tied. When you have both, you lack creativity and drive. I'm absolutely shocked this is a German commercial. After the Audi nonsense, I'm glad to see there's still some based Germans out there. Maybe there's hope yet for Deutschland. Big Grin

Damn, Leonard, that happened to me this last weekend.

I don't really see my relatives, but I was in town and I just happened to drop in on a get-together they were having.

Everyone kept asking me if I was on a diet.

My aunt even came up to me, looked up at me in awe, and moved her hand over my face, tracing the contours. She kept saying I was so handsome, and not in a "what a handsome nephew" way, in a "what a handsome man" way.

Granted, I'm only 6 pounds overweight, I could lose it in a week or two, but still, I've been eating sloppy for a few weeks, chocolate, fast food, potato chips, etc., and I can easily see the impact.

But to my relatives, who regularly eat processed foods, I looked like I belonged to a different species.

It's going to be interesting to see where this fat-acceptance movement goes when the rubber hits reality-road.

Which is to say, at what stage are we going to see a fatty first attempt to sue a doctor for suggesting they keep their BMI below 25? At what stage are we going to see law suits brought against the military for turfing the applications of lardos?

Personally I think that these hogs are riding the crest of the progressive wave that's about to come crashing down. They, like many of the new members of the freak brigade, are perfectly capable of living a non-freak life. There was plenty of sympathy for stomping out discrimination against people who had no means to alter their circumstances but now this special treatment is demanded for people who very much choose to live the life of the freak, and what's more they seem to revel in the pity parties they throw for themselves as being self inflicted outsiders.

It cannot last. Too few people have any sympathy for fatties. It's not like being born a midget, or with a lisp, or as a soul-less ginger. Nobody who drags their ass onto a treadmill or puts down the second doughnut sees these people for anything other than they are. Lazy, feckless, self indulgent cattle.

^Ahh, but they don't really go far enough, do they?

Who's the biggest girl there? A chubby black woman sucking in her gut, who's fat is all more or less moored to its correct geographical home.

Why not a 45BMI monster who's every outcropping appears to be desperately trying to reach the centre of the earth? What? Are they ashamed to represent such people?
