Doesn't that look yummy?

NEW YORK (AP) - December 15, 2009

It sounds disgusting -- and that's the point.

The New York City health department has a new video that shows a man drinking what looks like a glass full of fat.

He opens a soda can and pours out a mass of yellow yuck.

He tries to drink it, only to end up with greasy globs on his face.

Health Commissioner Thomas Farley says the video is to drive home the message that just a can of soda a day can add up to 10 pounds a year.

But the American Beverage Association says the campaign is irresponsible.

The fat video is on YouTube and the health department's Web site.
