Default Tobacco Commercial

Have you guys seen that new tobacco commercial with the girl in the grim reaper outfit representing "death"? Anyway, for those of you that haven't it goes like this: We see the grim reaper (a.k.a. death) come out of an elevator in a parking garage and then heads over to his car. Driving, he gets out at what seems to be like an amusement park or something that has kids and young adults. Walking into a dressing room, the figure takes off the outfit and we see a young, beautiful girl get out of it and then go back outside with a tray of sample tobacco. Meanwhile, the background has a lullaby by an indie band called honey/honey. It is a bit disturbing, but it definitely gets the message out. It certainly stays with you for a while. I don't smoke, and it still leaves a message for me haha! Check it out here and let me know what you guys think.

To be precise, the song was composed by this guy:

Well, there's always folk who take everything to the extreme. On matters of personal choice I ignore them and let them prattle on mostly.

I don't live in California, but I've never in my life seen cigarettes just handed out like that. Strange commercial.

I havent enjoyed a cigar in a while. A glass of Scotch and a Cuban is a perfect afternoon.

Smoking is bad so I rarely do it, just to point that out.

No, I've actually never seen anything like that at all.

Actually. now that I think about it I was at a concert once many years ago where they were handing out cigarettes if you filled out a mailing list form. That was about 10 years ago though. Ozzfest if I recall correctly.
