This is the misinformation we’re fighting against and it’s horrible. We can’t go against them and do positive messages for vaping because it’s against the rules. All we have are those who don’t own shops who can go out and inform the masses that vaping is not the monster they’ve painted it out to be :frowning:

I knew this video would be anti-vaping before I watched it because of where it’s posted here.

But, even if I didn’t, and even if the punchline was trying to paint some other product/habit in a bad light, I still would have the same reaction- I laughed my ass off. Sure, the vapers here bristle at any insane anti-vape piece like this one, but frankly, it is so outlandish and such a stupid correlation that I really don’t think many people are going to be too moved by this inane hit piece. It’s just so damn stupid I can hardly believe it isn’t a parody.

Shame it exists, but wow that’s desperation there.

I thought to myself ‘It’s the movie The Faculty, caused by pods’.

Based off an obscene study, @Phil_Fish… will see if I can find it.
Not sure but I think Chapel Hill and not sure who was involved.

I haven’t seen the ‘vaping is like sucking worms through a straw’ study, so thanks for the impending link.

no… it is where they got the idea to do this so called vid, Phil… there is a study out there that has that info.

I also have seen the autopsies, a few… cotton in the lungs… the metals from our coils effecting dna… You have to think who sponsored the study and that will lead to who sponsored the vid getting out. :slight_smile:

I find myself in a rare disagreement with you on this one Phil. This ad cohabitates with so much of the movies and programming out there I believe it will resonate with a lot of people .

Only severely ignorant people. But yeah, that’s the unfortunate reality.

Cool! I didn’t know you agreed with me so much already!

Whichever way this ad works out resonating, it is still a disgusting shame.

Welcome back (or at least a post or two), missed your mixes, comments, and intellect @Pro_Vapes. I never saw that aired, but I had seen a special on the anti-vaping’s production OF that commercial. Shock value at best, dishonest (and more) at worst.

I had the same reaction when I saw snippets of it in the special.

Hehe @Phil_Fish, I don’t think you’ll see @provapes saying, " What The F@(#!" very often. He saves that for the really good s#$t.

@xxanalogxx If I remember the “special” that I saw resolving around the making of, and marketing of this ad, was focus group tested, and specifically “crafted”.

Holy crap! I thought the exact same thing :rofl:

I’ve often wondered what the Salem Witch Trials experience would be like.
Not anymore…
