1 DropMurphy, about your comment in which smoking is discouraged by telling people what they can buy with the money spent on smoke: someone stole your idea. I was at some gas stations and saw the ads. That's more like it! An anti-smoking ad that actually makes you want to quit or cut back. Their worst ad is much better at its job than even the best Truth ad. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 16, 2013, 1:21 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 One of the dumbest commercials I ever saw about truth. Is that they had a commercial of waving bop-it looking wives with actual people singing this obnoxious song. Part of the lyrics and the message they were trying to send was that "Smoking will beat your wife." and at the end one of the kids asks "Smoking will beat your wife?" Kindof like my reaction, only except, that Alcohol is more prone to do more damage than cigarettes, bar none. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on August 10, 2013, 11:03 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Well, I recently saw one of the newest ads from The Truth. It's probably one of the worst commercials in the history of television. A stuffed dog is mounted on a giant clear pipe, as is a stuffed cat. You see, tobacco has urea, which is found in cat pee, and methane, which is found in dog poop. People are asked which is the uglier truth and press a button indicating their vote. Press the button for dog poop, and the stuffed dog defecates into the pipe. Press the button for cat pee, and the stuffed cat urinates into the pipe. It's even more disgusting than it sounds. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 1, 2013, 2:03 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 The Truth? These turn me more onto smoking than turn me off and I don't even smoke. -- Submitted By: () on August 5, 2012, 9:32 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 one I particularly remember is one where they claimed that a radioactive element (polonium 220 or something) was in cigarettes. I looked it up in the periodic table and it wasn't even a real isotope. -- Submitted By: (wambamsam) on August 4, 2012, 7:37 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

8 Any site, regardless of its subject matter, which calls itself The Truth automatically bones. (That goes for people who include the word "truth" in their online screen names.) It's a word redolent of self-importance, and self-importance annoys me more than damn near anything else on the planet. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 5, 2011, 4:02 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I, too, am tempted to light up just to spite TheTruth.com. Their commercials and ads are stupid beyond belief and they're condescending to the point it makes me sick. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 27, 2010, 8:54 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 The commercials are absolutley stupid, the "truth" they preach (and that's using the term lightly) is bogus... it makes me want to go out and smoke to. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on June 20, 2010, 11:31 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Should let people kill themselves over a period of 30-50 years. Who says we have to live til 90? When someone is carting us around half brain-dead. -- Submitted By: (Niggarachi) on November 16, 2009, 8:36 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Who can blame you, Stephanie...I don't smoke, and even I'm tempted to light up just to spite the Truth. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 24, 2009, 1:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 I agree with Robert! These commercials make you WANT to smoke. I fire one up everytime one of these ads come on T.V. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on September 15, 2009, 11:30 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

15 Rather than using false/exaggerated information, put it in terms teenagers will care about. Don't make it about health for one thing... teenagers have always thought themselves invincible and these commercials won't convince them otherwise. Put it in terms of money saved by not smoking now that it's so expensive, then translate THAT into what the teenage demographic would like to purchase (Game Consoles, HDTV's, cell phones, etc.). Way more effective. Also, don't have a group of adolescents that are lamer than your average high school Christian club and you might have a campaign on your hands. -- Submitted By: (Dropmurphy) on May 20, 2009, 3:45 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
16 I'm nonsmoker myself but their ads seem to be such heavyhanded, sermonizing dirges that they even turn ME off so I wonder why they think they'll get undecided teens to never be tempted to smoke? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 10, 2009, 2:01 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
