Good ad. Seriously, degenerate freaks get people talking about new products. Of course, once your brand is established, you will want to dial down the fucks. Can you imagine:

You're in good hands with fucking Allstate.
Have a fucking Coke and a smile.

Does anybody have a marketing idea that doesn't involve a woman being an asshole or a woman kicking a man in the nuts?

"Relax! It's a f***ing BLACK REPUBLICAN!"

Hee hee....the video didn't work here, but suffice to say that anything Courtney Love puts in her mouth will never be put in mine. Yee f***ing Gawd.

Courtney Love: class personified.

The ad embodies the spirit of vaping.

And I have heard Rush Limbaugh talk about vaping in the same terms. Uptight squares are aghast that you're smoking but you're not smoking. Ha ha. Stupid, uptight square people can go to hell.

Your endorsement was better, Madame.

Stephen Dorff makes e-smoking look cool, without all the vulgarity of that Cobain woman!

Purchase of the f**king Day,

De-f**king-pends

We have no f**king idea who bought these f**king things, but God bless 'em, the poor incontinent SOB.

So use the Althouse Portal for f**k's sake! What are you waiting for?

There is a spirit to it? Wow must be like that other fumble fussy body habit of smoking a pipe...with less ash.

I know how hard it was to quit after 55 years of 3 packs a day, because I did it..."vaping" is for weak kneed pussies. It's the wanker form of smoking.

Amartel said...

Yeah, the Stephen Dorff commercial appeals to a different demographic. (Mine.)
It's the same message but different messenger: e-smoking* is cool.
Cool = hollering at the squares if you're Courtney fucking Love.
Cool = no risk smoking

*I doubt "vaping" is going to catch on

Aridog said...

Amartel ...let me assist you here:

Vaping is to smoking as masturbation is to fucking.

halojones-fan said...

It's like the movie "Idiocracy", only not a joke.

Amartel said...

Haha. Got it. Not the same thing.

Chef Mojo said...

Courtney Love: The epitome of being famous for being famous.

Oh, but yes it is the same equivalence to a guy who smoked three packs of Camels or Winstons a day for 50+ years....then quit. Trust me, vaping is wanking....from my perspective anyway.

I'm not one of those "born again" anti-smoking zealots either...there is an ash tray cup in my truck, and on my porch, for smokers. Would I like to smoke again? Damn right. But I won't.

Sucking on a small steam pipe is not alternative. It is the same thing...a habit, and no sense calling it heaven sent.

I've been quit for a long time. But the idea of being able to get away with it with e cigarettes is like a demon whispering to me...do it do it do it. Please give me a reason or several not to do it.

Yeah, she sucks, but Live Through This was a pretty decent album.

Okay. E-cigs are imitation cigarettes, a portal to return to smoking if you will. It enables the addiction side of smoking directly [nicotine]and soon enough evolves the habitual side [chain smoking or "vaping"].

If you are or were like about 90% of smokers, you will soon discover you have no patience for e-cig apparatus and stuff to keep them active...just like cigarette smokers found with pipe smoking. You/we are human...when something irritates us we will act to remove the irritation and keep the satisfaction...e.g., resume smoking cigarettes again. Simple as that.

Check out just this one advertisement for vape gear...let it scroll through all the hardware and chemicals, check out all the tabs.

If all else fails, if you try you too could become a three pack a day camel smoker like I was...that's about $450 per month in Michigan. Pure genius, eh?

If it turns out that it isn't bad for you long term, I think it's wonderful. We could all smoke with no ill effects; what's not to like?

Freeman Hunt said...

You can buy disposable ones.

Liz, I wouldn't take it up now because it may turn out to be terrible for you. I'd wait. But that's just me. Another's calculus may be different. I would probably do it if I were several decades older and therefore less co concerned with possible cumulative effects. I suppose it would be a pretty monetarily wasteful habit as well, so that's a good reason to avoid it.

Aridog said...

Freeman Hunt .... The negative effects of nicotine have not been established, other than it is an addictive substance more addictive than cocaine. Carcinogenic properties appear to include bladder cancer. I guess you can pick your cancer.

The disposable ones I've seen do require charging of a battery...e.g., you want a fag, but it's uncharged...OMG, light up a Winston! No thanks, I have enough trouble keeping my cell phone fully charged.

You are well served by advising K-Liz to skip it. Trust me, after 50+ years of severe addiction I looked at every single option, bar none. They ALL lead directly back to the real deal. Man, I've even smoked a camel a couple of times just to prove to myself I would not sustain it...I am really quite the knot-head.

I never wanted to quit, I really really liked smoking and the pleasure of it all. But I had to quit and it just became another challenge to meet and periodically defy in a masochistic way. I have friends who think I am nuts to even be near anyone smoking...but the thrill is the risk, and knowing you can ignore it.

If all that fails, in today's dollar terms, my addiction cost me over $275,000 over the 50+ years. Now that is just PLAIN S-T-U-P-I-D.
