Hello YouTube, my name is Nick Naylor, Vice President of the Academy of Tobacco Studies and I'm here to talk about cigarettes. Now, I know that you're going to roll your eyes at me and say "yeah, yeah, I know how bad cigarettes are" or you're going to brace yourself for a disturbing animation that is so seared into your head that when you close your eyes all you can hear is the "DRRR DRRR" of a ventilation machine.

Well, I'm here to tell you today that you can sleep safely tonight. You see, we believe that in America you should have the freedom of choice. We're not telling you to buy cigarettes or not. The tobacco industry represents the foundations of America - industry, capitalism and the right to choose whether or not you want that cigarette over that cardiac poison they call a lunch. That's why we're launching a youtube campaign that shows the people do or do not want to smoke. The best one will be run as a national commercial and the winner gets 1, 000, 000 dollars.

Because, in the end, don't you want to make your own choice whether or not you want to smoke or drive 100 down a free way in a Ford?
