Baby Phat!

It wasn’t fun being heavy as a kid. I got teased all the time: “Hey adipose-head!” or “Look who’s insulin resistant!”

And that was just from my physician parents. Kids at school? Don’t even go there.

But vengeance is a dish best served a la carte, and so here’s a steaming platter of Lady Gaga Pokerface parody power in service of a simple goal: helping our kids get healthier.

We know that childhood obesity is an inordinately complex public health problem to tackle in 3.5 minutes, so we’ve engaged the necessary teaching aids: sumo suited mini-Z, dancing hot dog/french fry parents, and a puppet version of Dr. Harry that is an order of magnitude more charismatic than original. And only marginally less handsome.

Years in the making and tens of dollars over budget (having cost tens of dollars), Baby Phat may well stand as our own personal Ishtar…if we’re lucky.

Lyrics by ZDoggMD and Dr. Harry. Music production by the inestimable Devin Moore. Editing by ZDoggMD. Starring ZDoggMD, Dr. Harry (by proxy), Josh.0 (as Hot Dog Dad), Astrid Schanz-Garbassi (as French Fry Mom), and the ZPupps (as themselves).
