I don’t think it’s quite a bandwagon yet, but I’m jumping on board with the Gluten Dude and Erin from Gluten Free Fun in commenting on the “Sh*t gluten-free people say” video that Cappello’s made (which they have since removed from Youtube).
I’m not going to spend too much time belaboring how lame the video was. But I will say I was not happy to see my gluten free people depicted as bitchy, needy, and frivolous. There’s a lot of work to be done in raising awareness that Celiac disease is a serious autoimmune disorder. You don’t see anyone making a “Sh*t people with Lupus say” video, now do you?
So, here are a few videos on Celiac disease that made me laugh. Ones that were created by people actually living with Celiacs, not a company trying to increase sales.
1. The Quinoa Song:
These guys are great, and this song is actually really catchy/informative! “If you have Celiac Disease, allergy to wheat, the Inca Gold will save you – it’ll get you off your feet!”
2. Royal Empire Celiac Awareness
Gluten Dude shared this video and I loved it so I’m sharing it to give these guys some more views!
3. The Rap on Celiac Disease:
And this one had me cracking up. “Celiac disease, all the way!”
4. Celiac Disease: What kids have to say
This one didn’t make me laugh, but I love these kids. They aren’t following any fad and eating gluten free is hard for them, but they can always find the good in things.
Hopefully more funny, silly, heartfelt, and *hilariously awful* videos will start coming out soon!
