Saturday Vids: Feminist Attack on Snack Factory's Pretzels

In case you haven't already seen Snack Factory's disgusting new ad for their "thin" pretzel crisps, have a gander:

Disgusting, right? Well, thankfully, one guy decided to fight back with creativity and the facts (you CAN be too thin):

I love many things about this video. Primarily, that somebody responded intelligently to these ads and is attempting to raise awareness in the face of the media clearly doing their best to dispel the truth about eating disorders. I also love that a guy did this - unreasonably high body image standards in our culture AFFECT MEN and I'm so happy this guy is raising awareness on that front - both in the facts he presented and just the basic fact that HE took action.

YAY FEMINIST RESPONSES TO THE MEDIA!
