Have you seen any yet? I’ve seen two. They’re a real blast from the past, as they show hip young people dragging on an e-cig just like they did back in the days when there were television commercials for real cigarettes.
Decades of no commercials of this kind have made the cigs=sex message seem especially silly.
I’ve seen two of them for blue e-cigs. The one with Jenny McCarthy fits your description, but the one with Stephen Dorff not too long ago was lacking in the sex appeal department. Perhaps their marketing department changed their viewpoint between the two ads.
But yeah, someone lit one of these up when I was in a restaurant a few months ago, and I found it very annoying, even though I was halfway across the room and probably wouldn’t have smelled it even if it was a real cigarette.
I don’t know why it annoyed me so, as I think smoking is something that only restaurant owners should be the ones to allow or ban, but it did.
I also think the kiosks at the mall where they sell them are annoying. But so are most mall kiosks.
I saw one for the Blu brand with a pseudo-macho dude acting overly serious about being your own man and taking control of your life again, all shot in the pretentiously moody weight that only B&W photography can give.
He goes through this whole David Caruso-esque monologue then sticks a bluetooth earpiece equivalent of a “cigarette” in his mouth to make the whole ad far more laughable than it already was.
Why would someone inhaling water vapor annoy you? I’ve never so much as gotten a whiff of a smell even when someone was inhaling one right next to me. And most of the time when they breath out, there is no more vapor.
Well then find out the brand of the e-cig and the solution involved, and let me know, as one of our coworkers has us dizzy with the cloud of vanilla/maple/spice/whatever-scented vapor. Theoretically e-cigs are just as banned as regular smokes inside the office but her age, seniority and life situation are such nobody dares say jack. We suspect she’s maybe overloading/overdoing it, perhaps even taking in MORE nicotine per day.
(I do believe all nicotine delivery modes should be under the same advertising/marketing restrictions; no more and no less)
I threw them away when I used that type, but now I’ll toss them under the cars of folks I don’t like.
Have you a link? They are a thin metal tube with an igniter and absorbent refillable material. I would think they would crush.
