Shards O'Glass
I did like the Shards O'Glass freeze pop ads. I don't generally like what the truth.com puts out, since most of it is scaremongering and assigning blame to the evil tobacco companies, when most people who smoke know the risks, and those that don't are idiots. This ad seems to have borrowed heavily from the Dan Akroyd SNL skit about unsafe toys; remember the bag of broken glass, bag of rusty nails, empty plastic bag and asbestos Annie?

It is kind of odd that we have a product that is so prevalent in our society that, if used according to the manufacturers specifications, will bring a quicker death in 1 out of 3 users. But hey, as Sgt. Barnes said in Platoon, "Everybody gotta die sometime."
