Best or Worst Anti-Smoking Ad of All Time?

Brought to you by the talented minds at BBDO, this anti-smoking ad is sure to stir up emotions (among other things) to get its point across about self-proclaimed social smokers.

The campaign, commonly referred to as “Social Farting,” has actors passing gas in social situations while using the same language that “social smokers” use to justify their habit of lighting up only when they are at parties or out at a club.



The obvious point of the ad is that social smoking is as ridiculous as social farting. Social smoking is simply smoking and can’t be justified any other way.

Let us know your thoughts. Do you find the ad funny, offensive, or just plain stupid?
