Now don't get me wrong, I can see that smoking is a pretty stupid thing to do. That's the ex-smoker in me talking. I quit after 26 years of caning them. I'm proud of that fact, although it had more to do with the drug Zyban http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/medicines/100004174.html than any great will power on my behalf, I can't even open a bag of Haribo http://www.haribo.com/planet/sprachauswahl.php without scoffing the lot, but this new campaign is too much. It's just bullying, plain and simple.http://www.independent.ie/national-news/antismoking-images-for-cigarette-packs-1374934.html?start=2
Maybe we could start putting pictures of car wrecks on cars? yeah or rotten livers on bottles of Cotes du Rhone ? or how about pictures of fucking bankers on loan applications.............................
It's nice though to think that photography still has the power to shock.
