    Pure win

  2. Super Jesus on June 26th, 2008 5:01 pm

    Hehehe, Ownt.

    Why doesn’t that happen to Snake?

  3. Zuthulu on June 26th, 2008 5:06 pm

    ‘Cause in the NES games, cigarettes saved his life.

  4. Ars Arcanum on June 26th, 2008 5:23 pm

    This makes up for the wolf joke. Almost.

    Only thing I can say about this:


  5. B-mac on June 26th, 2008 5:45 pm

    This is an awesome commercial.

  6. SpiralCocktail on June 26th, 2008 6:25 pm

    That was a damn expensive commercial. Though it is a little funny, it is kinda stupid how a cigarette suddenly kills him. Was that his first smoke? Was he smoking in a toxic environment? Did he remove his oxygen supply to smoke? Was he sabotaged with cyanide-laced smokes? I mean, even smokers don’t just cough and die, they get cancer. Why couldn’t he get cancer like everyone else and then die from it? Then again, they would have to do a whole “20 years later” and he’ll be in a hospital bed still holding his gun or something.
    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a smoker and I do not promote smoking in any way. I just think it is a perversion and makes video gamers look stupid with this kind of exaggeration in their form of media.

    “im solid snake, and i approve this message *lights one up*”

  8. Red on June 26th, 2008 6:54 pm

    Uh, last time I checked cigarettes took away health but gave you EVE. Totally worth it. I needs my fist o’ lightning.

  9. Ham Sandwich on June 26th, 2008 7:35 pm


    ….SHUT UP….

  10. MonkeyP1P on June 26th, 2008 7:42 pm

    Isn’t this a free country where i can decide wich religion i want, what I can say, or, hell, whether or not to smoke without it being oppressed or questioned by others?

  11. Zeroshimako on June 26th, 2008 7:44 pm

    He contracted the fastest case of lung cancer the world has ever seen.
    Oh, and it sounded like Snake. GDit, Snake, stop being a joykill. You’re not allowed to smoke just because your cells are decaying at an alarming rate. >:{

  12. MasqueNoMercy on June 26th, 2008 8:28 pm

    did he use a rocket launching spartan laser to destroy that ship?

  13. Setsuna Setsunai on June 26th, 2008 8:33 pm

    The HUD looks like Master Chief’s. You know, if only the Covenant knew this, they could have just brought with them a pack of Marlboros instead of all that fancy plasma garbage.

  14. npc killer on June 26th, 2008 8:42 pm

    he he he that was great let me get mah weed and watch bit again jk jk

  15. Mace on June 26th, 2008 8:57 pm

    I would totally buy that game….

  16. Caelun Niveus on June 26th, 2008 9:00 pm

    His ammo counter stops going down after he pulls out the rocket launcher. And is the kill counter in the lower right really necessary?

  17. burnoutspartan on June 26th, 2008 9:38 pm

    ummmmm……. HA!

  18. Pigeon Army on June 26th, 2008 9:54 pm

    So…how many hours until Jack Thompson finds out that this ad is going around? And how many hours until he rails against it?

  19. Evitron on June 26th, 2008 9:54 pm


  20. Da Noob on June 26th, 2008 10:06 pm

    i would love to play that game…

  21. Paulrus on June 26th, 2008 10:39 pm

    The money these people go through to state the most obvious of facts.

  22. Marr on June 26th, 2008 11:18 pm

    It is a free country where people can freely express their opnions about, say, ciggarates.

  23. Valdis M. on June 27th, 2008 12:04 am

    @Caelun Niveus
    Wouldnt it be funny if the kill counter went up 1 when he died from the terror cig?

  24. Haywire on June 27th, 2008 12:54 am

    @Pigeon Army
    Hopefully, not soon.

  25. Rayza B on June 27th, 2008 2:13 am

    I thought ol’ Jack was bogged down with that misconduct stuff.

  26. Blank-Mage on June 27th, 2008 3:13 am

    @ Pigeon Army. He was probably already attacking it even before it was made. He senses it!

  27. FrEEz on June 27th, 2008 5:41 am

    Rofl very well made xD
    They shouldve had that somehow instead of the loadscreen warning :P, it’s so much better. 5 stars

  28. SpiralCocktail on June 27th, 2008 6:59 am

    @Ham Sandwich
    …BITE ME…

  29. ObadiatheSlim on June 27th, 2008 8:24 am


  30. Pauld'Arbonne on June 27th, 2008 12:27 pm

    Haha! Great commercial.

  31. Dan on June 27th, 2008 3:36 pm

    The unnoticed irony here is that soldiers are the only people for whome there are health benefits for smoking. They were standard issue in WW 2 I believe (and it’s not worth looking it up for, sorry guys.) In high stress jobs, like any where you are getting shelled on a daily basis, lung cancer isn’t your greatest condern and anything that can let you deal that stress was likely to save your life.
    It would be irresponsible to say an argument like that one anywhere around impressionable children though as they are likely to miss the point. But I don’t think this commercial is going to influence people’s smoking choices. Anyone so impressionable that they would be swayed by this kind of add is also impressionable enough to fall for “it’ll make you cool” so really it was a waste of money.

  32. Pigeon Army on June 27th, 2008 9:32 pm

    @Rayza B
    Jack may well be bogged down with misconduct hearings, but since when did anything stop Jack? He’s like the Energizer Bunny of idiot lawyers -- he just keeps going and going and going and going…

  33. ManiacalZManiac on June 28th, 2008 3:29 am

    Initiate Halolz Flame War Mk III

    Haha, I Kinda Laughed At The Commercial, But, Damn, It Looks Expensive.

  34. Stick on June 28th, 2008 2:57 pm


  35. killercartoons on June 28th, 2008 3:55 pm

    haha, nice, good commercial. and im not going to lie guys, it was well made, but it really probably wasnt that expensive. oh and
    @SpiralCocktail, “BITE ME”, really? did you really just reply with that? its a commercial, they were jsut trying to make a point to people!

  36. Saiden on June 28th, 2008 7:10 pm

    Was expecting an MGS4 smoke-jokes again XD, But this is just as good.

  37. The Silent One on June 29th, 2008 10:13 pm

    Horrible marketing ploy. Did they even think before they made this? Seriously. What percentage of gamers smoke? I’ll give a rough estimate: 2%. Fucking horrible idea for a no-smoking ad. PR Team Fail.

  38. Not Chris on July 14th, 2008 10:05 am

    I’ma send this video to… some game company that would make this game… and then buy it when it comes out.

  39. Justin on April 20th, 2010 2:57 pm

    This commercial disappointed me so much when i first saw it. It was stupid how he takes one puff and dies. What would have been REALLY funny is if it showed a sniper looking through his scope and seeing the smoke, then shooting his head off.
