Yaz Chewables and Other Drugs

If you watch television, you’ve probably at some point in your life encountered advertisements for prescription drugs. These commercials follow a basic format: First, some medical problem you didn’t know you had is shown. Then the drug is presented as a solution to this medical condition. Next, the drug’s side effects are quickly rattled off. Finally, the commercial ends with a tag showing that everything will be better thanks to this new wonder drug.

My friend, the filmmaker Zak Stoltz, has put together a video that takes a number of these commercials and blends them together to comment on the nature of this formula.
