Soda consumption is associated with increased risk for Type 2 diabetes, which can lead to blindness. If it's bad for your health, it needs higher taxes.
The ad asks what the real taste of two different soft drinks is and says it will use a blind test to find out. A man with sunglasses sits at a table with two glasses of soda. He says he is the perfect one to take the test because he drank soda since he was a kid but didn't knew it had so much sugar and developed Type 2 diabetes and later blindness.

Viewers are urged to support tax on sugary drinks, which are good for health and for the economy.
