UnTruth In Advertising …

Yeah … a fag company advertising their death sticks with the line, “Life. Full On”

OK, so this photo was taken in a market where cigarette advertising is still allowed – which means they’re already behind the times – but unless their interpretation of ‘Life. Full On’ is one Salem fag puts 10 years of hard-livng pressure on your heart and lungs … then they’re a bunch of lying bastards.

For the record, I took this photo in 2006, so there is a very good chance this campaign – and cigarette legislation – has changed. But since when has that ever stopped me.

First of all, belated birthday wishes to your dad.
As for cigarette advertising. I suppose if communicating your product is banned in most of the World and people know your product is going to kill them, they have nothing left to lose so lying is “on brand” for them.

I like the ‘on brand’ comment. It’s very appropriate and very vicious for you, George.
