An Anti-Cigarette Commercial for Stoners

I was just freaked out by one of those anti-tobacco "Truth" commercials. They're taking it too far with the whole animation gimmick.

The commercial I just saw included a disturbing ditty about how smoking can lead to the birth of underweight babies.

Here are some of the lyrics (sung by a cartoon stork):

"Healthy babies are just no fun.
They eat too much and they weigh a ton.
It's really just a shame they have to grow...

They might be small and limp and sickly.
But they’re so cute and extra tickly."

I couldn't find a embedable clip (that worked), so here are some stills.

Also, I addressed only the commercial with my headline, but the entire "The Sunny Side of Truth" Web site seems like it would be more palatable while under the influence of weed.

These guys are there.

Don't bother going to the site though. I wholly encourage you to keep puffing away. More people need to smoke.

Obviously I'm kidding.

Update: Found it!

If given the option, I think I would rather push out a small baby BTW.

And what's up with the gerbil?

I can NOT believe that you people are dissing this commercial. I think it is my favorite commercial because it's true. In 2001 app.300 babies died of SIDS because of second-hand smoke. it may not be a large number but its too much. Little bitty babies are the way to go...What!?...No.

You people? Uh, I'm just one person dude.

I'm not "dissing" this commercial. I posted it because I like it, and think it's funny. And you probably disagree with me, but I think that's what it's creators were going for.

I didn't say "little bitty babies are the way to go." The singing, cartoon stork did, as those are the lyrics to the song.

All of that said anonymous, I'm glad we both like the commercial...even if it's for different reasons.

Oh yeah, second-hand smoke is certainly a risk-factor for SIDS. But unless I'm mistaken, there's no conclusive proof saying that's the cause.

After all, the American SIDS Institute says,"SIDS is the sudden death of an infant under one year of age which remains UNEXPLAINED after a thorough case investigation.

Please don't twist what I'm saying. Pregnant women obviously shouldn't smoke, and neither should the people around them.
