Sugary drinks are a top source of calories in the American diet.

This is troubling because the nation is struggling with an obesity epidemic.

Given that Latinos especially suffer from higher rates of obesity than several other population groups, “The Real Bears,” a recent animated short film that has generated more than 2 million views on YouTube, has now been converted into Spanish.

“The Real Bears,” which tells the story of a family suffering the adverse health effects of soda, including obesity, tooth decay, and diabetes and its associated complications, including amputation and erectile dysfunction, is produced by nonprofit group Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI).

It features an original song by Grammy-award-winning singer/songwriter Jason Mraz and directed by advertising legend Alex Bogusky.

Watch the video now in Spanish or English.
