The Product that Thrills is the Product that Kills

Although not as controversial as a recent French anti-smoking campaign aimed at young people that equated smoking with forced oral sex, this fake ad from The Truth campaign is designed to get attention.  This ad was created ten years ago as part of a series that also shows fake ads for sneakers and acne cream if these consumer products were as likely to kill their users as cigarettes are.  It is still getting considerable airplay in the United States.
