    Not an advocate - not clever enough, but if I were...

    I would be looking at meme makers to redo these ads in different forms (enough so they dont prosecute for copyright infringement) and claim the sheep as my own so that the sheep can be turned back on them and that they can become pro vaping ads rather than anti vaping

    If its about PR and if they are still using same old same old anti tobacco tactics - then it would make sense to take ownership and turn the tables on them using thier own PR and tactics

    Redoing adds like these to favour vaping would both take the sting out of them and render them harmless more or less

    Lol Not bad... but how about more proffessional versions of these kinds of slogans? ( i cant do creative or slogans to save my life) - but If sheep are used for one or two adds then why not flood media and social media with sheep that counter anti vaping? The alternative is just to be very annoyed and let someone else do it - which is fine too
    and yep I see the last one is a bit dodgey and can be taken either way - but you get the picture ...

    That time in the morning.
    The sun is up, and so are you.

    You're getting up early again. You're doing things right. Good for you.
    You hit 52 minutes on the bike this morning. You're losing weight. You're starting to look good.

    You've had a shower.
    You've had your breakfast.
    You've had your coffee.

    All that's to do now is walk out the door and take the day head on.
    You pick up your keys. But You stop for a moment.
    You think about how far you've come.

    You take a vape, and feel the moment.

    You th.....

    Baaaaaaaa! Hurry the **** up Gerald! My train leaves in 15 minutes!

    What you need to understand is that this kind of advertising is aimed at kids who don't smoke, but vaping looks like fun. Who doesn't want to be a dragon?

    In that context, this kind of stuff isn't too far wrong.

    But as an either/or for vaping/smoking, it's liable to set up someone for a really, big, nasty, angry and expensive law suit.

    All it'll take is some guy with a bunch of kids who took up vaping from smoking, got pushed back to the smokes by this kind of idiocy, and he dies of lung cancer leaving a wife and kids without their beloved father.

    And a blood and guts lawyer who can sniff the money that could be made from such a lawsuit and who's willing to turn the arguments against the peddlers of this kind of horse pucky.

    Start bleeding this kind of crap dry of funds and it'll go away pretty quickly.

    Then again, the world is full of stupid stuff forced on us all by do gooders who haven't got a clue. This is yet another one...

    They're clearly fucking idiots. Telling people to not follow the herd would have to be one of the most ineffective discouragement techniques ever to have money wasted on it. People like to belong to a groupno matter what it does, whether it's smokes, vaping, salsa dancing or crocheting fucking rugs. Telling them not to feel like belonging to something DOESNT FUCKING WORK.

    Instead of falling for the bait and getting angry.

    send the img to peta with a complaint,
    saying your not happy your child found this and he wants to know why they are depicting animal cruelty.

    they are always ready to light pitchforks for crap like this.
