The Swedish Diet: Get Fit For Thanksgiving
Need a change in your look and your diet before stuffing your face with turkey? This Swedish Diet commercial does its best to convince consumers to give in to the allure of ugly blonde wigs, blue dresses and bright yellow accessories. Plus, the green screen effects are magical. But the product sounds pretty fishy to us.
Anything involving the consumption of a tiny bottle of liquid pumped with that many chemicals, minerals and whatnot probably isn't the ideal way of getting into shape. According to the Swedish Diet site, users lose of average of 3-5 pounds during the first week. There's even a picture of an unidentified regal-looking doctor (or actor) to put his stamp of approval on the Swedish road to weight loss. Oh, and, the Swedish Diet company is based out of Largo, Florida. So much for authenticity.
