Ads which the tobacco industry was forced to create to appease the government. They obviously aren't trying very hard. Billboards with Joe Camel have been replaced with a picture of an ugly girl smoking with the word "BUTT HEAD" scrawled next to it. On television, there are ads with a bunch of computer windows which pop up with the word the truth in them with some kid babbling on about how smoking sucks. I have no urge to smoke myself, but these ads are just plain bad and should just be taken off the market. I never, even as a young child saw some guy like Joe Camel and felt like lighting up a cig. Sure cigarettes are responsible for deaths every year, but we shouldn't go after advertising as the main problem, people choose to smoke, they aren't told to.
