There's an anti-smoking commercial running in NY right now and the folks who made it obviously think it's very clever. I'm not sure it means what they think it means.
The tagline on the commercial is "You don't drink every time you smoke, so why do you smoke every time you drink?" The thing is, they show this woman preparing for her smoke break. She's there in the cubicle farm at work with her blender making what looks like a very tasty daquiri. And then she's outside of her office (relegated to a back alley, of course), having her cigarette and drinking her frozen, red drink.
Obviously, this commercial is meant to make me feel like I should forgo my smokes the next time I have a drink. Au contraire mon frere! This commercial makes me want to make sure there's an open bar at my next office.
