Im not sure what the fuss is about considering the idea was proved to be done before...at the time when they PR'd it here.

Calling them a ful fledged healthcare agency is a bit of a stretch...this was just an ambient stunt for a otc headache pill....it could have been staged or not....but we'll never know what its effectiveness of the stunt was beyond some youtuve views.

A full fledged healthcare agency is highly specialised unit where team members have degrees in pharmacology etc...they are highly educated about various drugs and how they act on the human system....and can speak of them with authority. I am not sure this is that kind of set up.
