JT or Japan Tobacco has been trying to win over the community by promoting a message of “Smoking Manners”. You can see the posters on the train, at the station and in these ashtray info-ads.
Some of the stuff they think up to convince people its ok to smoke as long as you mind your manners can be quite funny, but it is sad to think that the health effects of smoking take a back seat in the campaign.
Ray: D’you know that the human head weighs 8 pounds?
Jerry Maguire: Did you know that Troy Aikman, in only six years, has passed for 16,303 yards?
Ray: D’you know that bees and dogs can smell fear?
Jerry Maguire: Did you know that the career record for hits is 4,256 by Pete Rose who is NOT in the Hall of Fame?
Ray: D’you know that my next door neighbor has three rabbits?
Jerry Maguire: I… I can’t compete with that!
Do you have ads or posters for “Smoking Manners” in your part of town?
