    Know what’s really sad? The first thing that occurred to me is that this guy is probably dead now from lung cancer, and she is probably on her way there because of secondhand smoke!

  3. Wow…that’s…ummm…interesting. I don’t think I’d follow around anyone who was intentionally blowing ANYTHING in my face…even if it was minty fresh. I might punch them. =)

    that is just wrong in so many levels.

  6. WOW…that’s INSANE! I can’t believe it…really…the sad thing is, I’m sure during that time period you could find many more similar ads. I have seen videos of my friend’s parents when they were only little girls and their mother putting cigarettes in their mouths.

    Give me a freakin’ break! There is no way in hell having smoke in your face was ever sexy. I don’t give a shit what the Mad Men said!
