My first AIBU and I was about to write "be gentle with me" but I know it's in vain grin

Has anyone else seen this (very pink) animated advert? It's just been on Sky3 and I've searched for a link online but no joy.

The character so very concerned about her weight (and apparently reassured by a Celebrity Slim advisor) is a stick figure hmm. She looks only very slightly wider towards the bottom but only because of the cut of her dress - if anything, she looks as if might need to put on a few pounds!

On the other hand, I can imagine offence being taken if they did portray someone of a specific larger size.

I know it's "only" a cartoon but AIBU to think that this could still have a very dangerous effect on people with body dysmorphia or eating disorders?

confused

Or even on people of a healthy weight? (!)

Booboo I've found you again smile. I have no idea what this product is and won't ever find out. No access to commercial TV.
