Weight Loss Dilemma


This following skit revolves around the topic of food marketing. The key theme of our skit focuses on the misleading and often, manipulative, marketing and advertising claims that are made to sell weight loss supplements, pills, and even food. The main character, Leah, is running errands with her friend Zara, and they end up at a health food and supplement store. Leah is drawn to the weight loss drinks and supplements section of the store, and is enticed by a new weight loss drink offering quick results. While the store associate, George, communicates the benefits of this product, Zara does her best to explain to Leah the marketing tactics used to entice consumers to repeatedly buy products that do not work, and the real reasons behind why she believes she needs these products.
