UNDATED (WKRC) -- A beverage giant is taking on the obesity epidemic.
Coca-Cola released an online video that showcases ways to burn off the 140 calories in a can of Coke.
The ad, which says it takes about 23 minutes of cycling to burn 140 calories, shows happy cyclists working hard to earn a can of cola.
