I don't think...
it actually says that, it may imply it, but only to those who are paying that much attention. Shoot, if I didn't have videogames, I'm sure I'd be in much better shape.

Lol!
Maybe, if you combine your videogaming with those cheesefilled baguettes showed in the commercial. They serve potato chips/crisps and soda with their meals and still have the guts to blame games for making kids fat...

I blame that fatboys parents!!!! Don't buy it if you don't want him to eat it! If the kid has a job and is buying his own food,...have him pay rent to and then stay out of his way. LOL!!!

it all depends
if a parent let's their kid play video games all day as a substitute for going outside or playing with their friends or anything, than yeah, it's causing their obesity.
if you're like myself, and i would assume most gamers, we play video games instead of watching a lot of tv, and video games have been proven to be very beneficial for a person in comparison to television.

Gilber Arenas plays video games
He is in much better shape than Jarad.

Subway is a rip, ther $299 sandwhichs are skimpy as hell. Go to a real deli and eat real turkey

that commercial was hilarious. A good question would be if gilbert played video games as a kid, instead of on the b-ball court practicing

if someone is fat it is their own fault
unless they have some "genetic" disorder.

anyway how can you blame soemthing like a damn video game.
let's say all you do is play video games and that is the reason your fat, is the video games or console fault, are they making you sit on your fat as5 and get more fat
or
is the person choosing to sit on their fat as5 and gain a few more pounds???
