A good clear advert for this cause.

Does exactly what it needs to.

Job well done.

It's only an ad.

Not really sure why they are mentioning burning calories when they are probably primarily talking to women with children in their 30s and 40s. Some might get a little jealous. That's like 5 hours on the elliptical machine at the gym.

That would be pretty twisted. Jealous of someone who has Huntington's disease.

They burn that many calories because of the disease, that's why it's mentioned. They are describing symptoms of the disease, this is one of them. Should they have chosen something else? I don't think it's desirable to burn that many calories in a day while your body destroys itself. I'm shocked, I had no idea this happened to sufferers.

Yeah I know, I was being faeceish (a shittier version of facetious). Just thought it was an interesting way to put it i.e. to relate it to calories burnt rather than the fact that the body destroys itself. I mean wouldn't you be dead pretty soon if you were burning 5000 calories a day? Something doesn't quite add up there so that's why I thought it was odd

Because of your use of faeceish I shall offer you some of my hummus on cracker.
You would be dead pretty soon if you burned that many calories a day. So eat up, there's more hummus where this came from.

I like the execution above all. The idea reminds me a bit of an ad (I think it's for Monster.co.uk) with kids saying "When I grow up... I wanna be underpaid... Work extra hours... Blah blah blah.)
