Apparently, last night the Smoker’s Helpline television campaign started to air on the local CBC. It’s the campaign where I portray a 7 foot tall cigarette.
I know it started yesterday because today I received (so far) 4 separate comments from people (3 of them relative strangers) saying they saw it last night. That’s the power of advertising, right there.
While I do like the ads, like what I do in them, and enjoy the comments, I do have an apprehension about them due to my experiences after a certain series of Peter Pan ads aired almost 2 decades ago. Even now, I still get the occasional comment from people reminding me that I was in fact the guy in those Peter Pan ads.
