Three Benson and Hedges 90s ads

In the mid-late 90s, PM made BH ads with the theme of cigs being portrayed as actual people.

The obvious message in these BH ads is smoking is pleasurable and relaxing.  As well as the message of smoking being socially acceptable.

Take note of the BH ad with the Christmas theme.  I was actually trying to find some classical cig ads with Santa delivering cartons as Christmas gifts.  But I came across these neat ads instead.

Using all-white cigs as "people" makes better sense.  Since all-white cigs are better-looking than corked cigs.  (I know I smoke Newports, a corked cig.  But BHs are my favorite all-whites...MLs USED to be my favorite all whites but not anymore).

Three ads with women smoking cigars

Cigar ads were less common to see in mags 3-5 decades ago.  Especially cigar ads with women.  But here are three old ads with cigar ladies.  Take note cigar ads didnt have warnings in em back then.  Just like smokeless tobacco ads didnt have warnings in em before '86.

New Link added

I added a new link  to  my link list (off to the right) to another prosmoking-friendly blog.  "Smoking is Good" is the blog's title.  Has a lotta nice smokey images on it from my first impression of it.

Two Virginia Slims ads pre-1980

I'm guessing the VS ad with the SG warning is from the 70s.  While the one without the warning is obviously from the 60s.  Since cig ads didnt have the infamous warning in em during the Civil Rights era.

One common trend in all cig ads with models is every lady smiles in em.  The Marlboro Man is the only person in a cig ad I have NEVER seen smile.  Unless you wanna count the "Camel Man" who appeared in Camel ads in the early 80s...before Joe Camel was created.

Kansas: Man's e-cig explodes in home

This is the first time in a good while I posted an article link.  But this man from Kansas is lucky he and his future wife didnt get killed after his e-cig exploded.

I aint a fan of e-cigs.  But this page certainly caught my attention.  At least traditional cigs never explode while you smoke it.  Of course, careless smoking can cause fires but the cig cant explode in your mouth.


Three random cig ads

The Kool ad is one of those "modern" Kool ads (Most likely the Kool ad is from the early 2000s).

Motorcycles and cigs go hand in hand.  Especially biker girls who smoke.

Two ads of a cig brand from the 90s

I dont remember hearing of Style cigs. This is the first time I've even seen this brand's ads.  The top ad is from '92 and the bottom one is from '95.    But this brand existed in the 90s.  Style was made by Lorillard.  The original makers of Newports.  I'm assuming Style was taken off of the market by '96 or '97.

More Lights ad

There were actually two versions of More Lights.  One pack had beige More Lights and the other one had More White Lights.  This ad features the beige ones.
