Media Monday: Trenta graphic makes online waves
This National Post graphic illustrating the enormous size of the new Trenta drink at Starbucks went viral on the Internet last week. It was so talked about that Anderson Cooper brought it up on his CNN show 360.
I think what everyone finds so compelling is the fact that the drink's size exceeds the capacity of the average human stomach. Yuck, it makes me feel full just thinking about it.
I found the graphic on Charles Apple's blog. You can read about the graphic's initial rise to web popularity and reblogging at the National Post's website.
