Despite being aware of health risks of carbonated drinks, many people are addicted to the beverages. They might be well aware of the fact that such drinks may cause diabetes, make them obese or they may even suffer early tooth decay.

In 1971, Coca-Cola came up with its "Hilltop" anthem, in which people from different nationalities were seen singing "I'd like to buy the world a Coke and keep it company." 

The commercial even recently appeared in the season finale of the hit TV show "Mad Men".

Now, 40 years later, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), a non-profit organisation, has remade the famous "Hilltop" anthem, starring real people suffering from diseases caused by the intake of soda-based beverages.

The new video, which has gone viral on social media, shows people singing "I like to buy the world a drink, that doesn't cause disease," instead of its actual lyrics.

"They have used the most sophisticated and manipulative advertising techniques to convince children and adults alike that a disease-promoting drink will make them feel warm and fuzzy inside," said CSPI executive director Michael F Jacobson, according to Dailymail.
