    This is a local commercial for "NY Quits". It's about the dangers of second hand smoke. The creepy part is that they show toddlers with CGI smoke coming out of their noses and mouths.

    Haven't seen the commercial (do you have the link, mem?) but a recent BBC article implicated cigarette smoke in crib death (cot death)?

    Smoking when pregnant is apparently the leading culprit in crib/cot death(60%), and likelihood of death is increased when adults smoke around the baby.

    BBC News article on crib/cot death

    A acquaintance of mine lost her baby to crib death... and yeah, the idiot woman smoked. My mom smoked and I guess it's a miracle that I'm alive!

    It may appear creepy on TV but the reality is even worse when pregnant women and parents smoke around children.

    I'm glad they didn't audition the kids to actually smoke the damn things!:smile:

    It's all creepy! I want to strangle parents when I see them smoking in the car with little children. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    There was recently a similar ad run in the UK. It's not creepy it's effective.
