38. Who cares what the brand is - the concept is to see them smoking
Edited on Mon Nov-07-05 03:03 PM by LynneSin
And even without the brand name on the product many times the pack of smokes has the design of the brand.

You watch a movie and see such popular stars as Cameron Diaz or Matt Damon (these are just examples) puffing away on a smoke, young kids pick that up and think "Well <insert name here> smokes so I guess that's cool to do"

All I'm saying is there is no reason for most movie characters to be smoking in the film. There is overwhelming proof of the affects of smoking on the body (and please, don't insult me by arguing otherwise - I've watched close family members die of lung cancer).
