Last Sunday's Super Bowl (Part 3)

Continuation...

Tobacco companies have tried for years to attract female smokers with slogans like, "You've come a long way, baby."

Now I am thinking... Do I really want a cigarette? Do I really want to make someone else rich and myself sick???

Did you ever see on the television commercial shows a billboard depicting a young, leotard-clad woman smoking a cigarette. Two male ad executives stand admiring it, and one exclaims that women "will love it." The woman on the billboard suddenly becomes real and stubs the cigarette out on his head.

Another spot, 30 seconds long, shows a billboard with three smiling women smoking cigarettes, and the slogan, "Women are making the rush to rich flavor." Panels then peel off, changing the message to, "Women are making us rich."

Now let me thank the tobacco companies for making my hair smells like an ashtray, Thank you - thank you for staining my teeth and increasing my dry-cleaning bills. Thank you for the 52,000 cases of lung cancer you cause in women each year. I only hope we can return the favor some day...

I am not mad at the Ad agencies and or the tobacco companies that made me like smoking, it is my choice. What am just saying is that ads manipulate people... It make us do something that we don't really want to do! GET IT?

To be continued...
