:rofl: Bob Saget just popped into my head. And no I don't think anyone will ever suck dick for cigarettes. That's what I got from it anyway. Can anyone translate?

In pretty bad taste, to say the least!

How typical of the French - dirty airports, dirty train stations, dirty commercials.

I'm sure that dude, at that moment, couldn't give a damn less about that cigarette! I know I couldn't!

If smoking a cigarette is illustrated as oral rape, smoking a pipe can only be illustrated as wedding night fellatio ...

Naughty ads grab attention, which is the major objective with advertising. The French do smoke a lot of cigarettes.

I find the oral-sex-slavery equation distasteful. Probably not a favor to confuse and confute human trafficking with

smoking/health issues. Europe does have a problem with prostitution rings, as does the U.S., where vulnerable women

are shipped around and used in prostitution. Best confront one issue at a time.

So, is this the French method for dispensing loosies?
Have the French developed zipper lighters?
Is this ad supposed to be positive or negative?
These are the questions that come to mind when viewing this ad. Being an "anti" ad and coming from the French .....

IMHO, this ad is pretty typical of today's marketing campaigns. Ad execs are so desperate to get a jaded and uninterested populace to look at their ad, that they will do almost anything - even if the ad makes no sense (as in this case) - to get people to notice.
Zombies are another new (and pathetic) trend in commercials. There's no actual reason behind putting one in - but there they are selling soda and cell phones! Lol.
They'll do anything to appear hip and trendy.
