my point is that it's more a commercial made to entice people towards smoking than make them revile it.

That's cute, you think I'm just taking advantage of anonymity. Let me share with you, I'm exactly as much of a cocky son of a bitch in real life.

That's the government regulated message, but you'll notice a lot of these commercials spend a lot more time talking up smoking, or putting your mind on it, or telling you to go to tobacco company websites, and very little in actually denigrating smoking.

"The Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) was entered in November 1998, originally between the four largest United States tobacco companies and the attorneys general of 46 states. The states settled their Medicaid lawsuits against the tobacco industry for recovery of their tobacco-related, health-care costs, and also exempted the companies from private tort liability regarding harm caused by tobacco use.->

@koomori Why do you have to turn something positive into something negative? I hate when people only look at the negative. I think this commercial was really impactful. I was watching the previews on a dvd and I paused it after watching this clip to find it and share it with all my friends on facebook. If it has that kind of impact on a 16y/o girl to stop watching a movie and go share it then I'm pretty sure it's not a "stealth" ad.

The funniest thing about this commercial.... it's a stealth smoking commercial. Think about it, how long do they spend propping up the old image based things about smoking (it makes you look cool, tough, glamourous, sohpisticated, etc.)? How much time do they take to say "you could end up on apparati" (and note that they say *could*)? Most anti-smoking campaigns, at least in the US, are funded by tobacco companies, so they often turn out to be stealth smoking ads.

@PWD777 Ha, yeah, because when we saw it, my then girlfriend and I immediately threw away our packs... ...oh wait, no, we didn't. If I recall, we laughed our asses off.

And tobacco companies fund anti-smoking ads as part of a settlement of a class action lawsuit against Philip Morris, now Altria, a settlement called the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement. See below.

something tells me you have a tie to Ground Zero... or just very similar interests.

@koomori I know this is an old comment, but it is worth replying anyway. Are you an idiot? The beginning sequences of this commercial serve as a deep contrast to the image actively smoking will most likely give you in the long run, NOT to persuade you to smoke. They show the viewer different "images" of these people to sympathize with the whole audience, i.e. some ads persuade people that smoking makes you look sexy, while others tough. You are obviously just looking for an excuse to smoke.

In exchange, the companies agreed to curtail or cease certain tobacco marketing practices, as well as to pay, in perpetuity, various annual payments to the states to compensate them for some of the medical costs of caring for persons with smoking-related illnesses. **The money also funds a new anti-smoking advocacy group, called the American Legacy Foundation, that is responsible for such campaigns as The Truth.**" (Wikipedia, Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement)

And my grandpa did end up looking like that. I wish I could have met him...

I'm not being negative, I'm being realistic. Like I said, most anti-smoking ads in the US, where this was made, are made by the tobacco companies, and they have a much more vested interest in keeping someone smoking. Good for you that some commercial affected the way you think, though.

@aDiosHomie I'd love for a self righteous internet moron to tell me how I'm supposedly "ignorant" though, so go ahead. And while you're at it, why don't you tell me how many people you've lost to smoking, so we both know how superior I am to your genetic line.

@aDiosHomie Let me guess.... someone you knew died because "the evil tobacco company" got them hooked on their "death sticks." Let me tell you something. Both of my grandfathers died of smoking related complications, and I still smoke. I've smoked for five years. You know when the last time I had a cigarette is? Probably about a month ago. And I'm fucking fine. A strong enough person can smoke because they like it, and stay "free" of the "evil influence."
