The Dairy Farmers of Canada have got it backwards.

Who’d of thought that chocolate milk is a good post-workout recovery beverage for athletes? Certainly not many. That’s probably why the Dairy Farmers of Canada decided to launch a campaign featuring these two ads, created by Toronto-based Due North Communications, that show athletes doing things backwards, first crossing the finish line, going back to the starting line and then all the way back to the day before the race when they imbibe in some chocolate milk. And why not? Chocolate milk is a tasty drink and there’s nothing backwards about that.
