A dramatic anti-obesity public service announcement went viral Thursday morning.

It points the finger at parents for their kids' unhealthy eating habits, even when they're not kids anymore.

The PSA, created by Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, chronicles a fictional 300 pound man's life in reverse, all the way back to his childhood.



While some are finding the campaign effective, there's also backlash. Critics said it puts way too much blame on the parents.

The video's creators said people also need to take responsibility for their choices but hope this message will help break dangerous habits before they begin.
