If only official anti-smoking campaigns were like this

We love the chorus in this anti-smoking ditty.

If only official anti-smoking campaigns were like this

We love the chorus in this anti-smoking ditty.

"Cigarettes are manky,

huh?

You can even ask my auntie."

And ye can't beat these lines:

"Bate from the John Player Blues,

That's crazy just like Tom Cruise,

Teeth yellow like a family of Simpsons,

Get mouthwash, go rinse 'em."

It's part of the Irish cancer Society's X-HALE Short film competition which has 38 entries, some of which have catchy titles like "Don't be smoking, be smokin'", "Smokers are jokers" and our personal favourite "The Wheezy's".
