Seriously Fiz, it’s not.
Plus, we’re all thinking people. Okay, granted, some of us are thinking about snogging Oscar the Grouch. But still. We’re thinking.

And before you use this to start arguing the evils of advertising, please remember that this spot was created and developed by an advertising agency. As part of a PR campaign. And it’s brilliant. So there. And don’t hate. A lot of advertising geniuses (and PR brainchildren, for that matter) are fantastic people who do amazing work.
Secondly, and more importantly, you should feel free to sit back and enjoy the pretty pictures, but please, do not by any means attempt to bodyslam yourself to try them at home. Unless you have a team of 50, many hours, and a professional lighting crew. And photoshop.
And thirdly, let it be a motivator to enjoy a freaking sigh of relief today as you step up and proudly order that venti, extra-hot, half-caf, delish straight up. Skip the low-fat, schmo-fat. And for baby Jesus’ sake, drink your latte with regular milk, like God and Chuck Woolery intended.
