For a few months now, anyone who has ridden the subway has likely seen posters from the Department of Health showing a Snapple bottle pouring human fat into a glass.

It just turned that ad into a commercial and proved what you already suspected — anything nasty in a photograph is ten times nastier in video. Yuk!
