The ad, court-ordered to hit the airwaves over a decade ago, was finally delivered this month by a primitive relative of Siri, in a bored, monotonous incantation. The message is simple: cigarettes are bad for your health. The story behind the ad is anything but.

The campaign is part of a punishment the US government placed on tobacco companies more than 10 years ago, after the industry admitted it knowingly designed cigarettes to be addictive despite consequences to the public’s health. But the companies—including Altria, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco, Lorillard, and Philip Morris USA—spent years filing and losing court appeals. So the anti-smoking ads, paid for by the big tobacco companies, are only now being run in print and on television in the US.

The opening lines in the video ad made by the companies are frank and unapologetic, setting a “they made us do this” tone.

Here's one of the ads they're going to run very late at night



It wouldn't be that hard for talkloid video makers to pep up those ads a little bit hahaha

Generic aren't going to deter anyone who's addicted to smoking. Over here our cigarettes literally come packaged with shock images of rotting lungs and people with terminal cancer. Still doesn't stop people from literally digging through trash to get their nicotine fix.
