French Teens Give Tobacco Industry a Professional

Are you outraged? Shocked? Slightly turned on? Well, the French have been trying their darndest to stop teenagers from smoking. So they created these sexually suggestive ads in the hope teens will realize that, by smoking, they're giving someone a professional then flick the cigarette out of their hand -- or something. (According to the French Office for the Prevention of Smoking, 8% of 14-year-olds, 18% of 16-year-olds and 25% of 18-year-olds smoke cigarettes.)

Sidebar: If you don't read French, the slogan is “To smoke is to be a slave to tobacco.”
