Study Says Michael Bay Movies Can Make You Fat

Posted: September 6th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Study Says Michael Bay Movies Can Make You FatSubmit Comment
We've all heard of research showing that watching television results in a larger amount of snacking. Now, according to a new Cornell study, that snacking differs depending on what you're watching.

Researchers randomly assigned 94 students to one of three tasks: watch excerpts from Michael Bay's "The Island" action film with sound, watch "The Island" with sound, or watch the interview program "The Charlie Rose Show."

Each viewer was provided with large bowls of candy, cookies, vegetables and fruit to snack on. These bowls were weighed before and after viewings to measure the amount of each snack eaten.

It turned out that participants who watched "The Island," both with and without sound, ate more than twice as much as those who watched "The Charlie Rose Show." The study claims that action movies cause viewers (men and women) to snack more.

"We find that if you're watching an action movie while snacking, your mouth will see more action too," said the study. "More stimulating programs that are fast-paced, include many camera cuts, really draw you in and distract you from what you're eating. They can make you eat more because you're paying less attention to how much you are putting in your mouth."

The study added that it didn't matter what kind of food was in front of the viewer, indicating that healthy foods were also eaten in larger quantities.

They can also make you incredibly stupid...or is that the *result* of watching Michael Bay films? Dunno.

I meant prerequisite for, not result of. Like I care.

Anyway, the result of this study, which is stupid, is that Progressive talking head shows make people lose their appetite, which is why all viewers of The View are bulimic.

No but really people are conditioned to eat more theater food while watching theatrical movies. Durrrrr. Have them watch another action director instead of Charlie Rose.

Idiots.

Now that research study is out, I think I'm gonna change my thesis into "Watching Michael Bay movies also make you stupid."

I think we should throw David O. Russell and Uwe Boll into this as well. Just saying. LOL

It's simple--watching Michael Bay films robs the brain of adequate nutrition, thus the excessive eating.

Just like watching a Sasha Grey film will rob me of adequate nutrition for the back of my girlfriend's throat.

That's one of the dumbest things I've heard.. I think that goes for movie in general, not necessarily only Michael Bay's horrible pieces of godawful pieces of craps called "movies".

If they could watch "The Charlie Rose Show", The Island with sound and then maybe The Avengers, I would say that they would've eaten candy and stupid sh*t regardless if they watched Avengers or The Island..
