Three Really Strange Anti-Smoking Ads
Here are three of the strangest quit smoking ads you will ever see. Created by Sukle Advertising & Design for the Wyoming Department of Health, three ads explain how the department can help people conquer the challenge.
In "Patches," a man nervously eyes a peg-legged pirate on a city street corner, before gleefully snatching the pirate's eye patch. A deadpan voiceover reminds viewers that free nicotine patches are available. "Gum" opens with an agitated young man watching an older woman take a piece of gum, which he then extracts from her mouth through a passionate kiss. Free nicotine gum is also available from the Health Department.
Finally, in "Someone," a long-haired ex-smoker tells his troubles to a friendly man who dispenses advice. When it turns out the two men are one and the same, the voiceover reveals that "someone to talk to" is also available and free.
