      Nooooooooo victor no

    2. MassivePonyFan

      I switched to vaping and am very happy I did. My lungs feel a lot better every day.

    3. Just Chillin Out

      the best way to make people quit is to use scare tactics

    4. Hilton Klitzna

      Bruh just noticed nigahiga during the unicorn puking. Fuckinnthrowback

    5. ya boi

      I hate truth their annoying and they don't do shit but omg those dumb ass memes

    6. Cryptic Homemaker

      During college, my school did this "make the campus smoke free", which I supported cause I am not a smoker and those who did smoke on campus never followed the rules to not liter or keep it to a designated area. This change was through the Truth Initiative. Another girl and I were brought on as interns to help change campus policy and perception of said policies. We even went to Washington, DC to the Truth Headquarters, for preparing and learning what they wanted us to do. And man, it really does just seem like a bunch of adults grasping at what they think the cool kids will be attracted to. I think Truth has done great things and can continue to do great things, however, they're just going about it all wrong. I worked with them, and still think this stuff is lame as hell.

    7. MEMESTER SQUAD

      dude.......was that ryan higa?

    8. Cassidy Stout

      also i remember the scary one very well, like the guy ripping out a tooth to pay for his cigarettes, that was a good one

    9. Cassidy Stout

      i absolutely cannot believe i just saw a magician in this video

    10. BillyBlocks

      I think a better campaign would be to get influencers (from all different genres) to talk about the dangers of smoking.

    11. FN Gaming

      at least where i live most of us who do or did vape learned about it from the truth initiative and thats what caused people to start

    12. Graham Peterson

      I don’t even smoke and I feel like I should stop. Good job Eddy

    13. Why me

      Shrek McLovin same

    14. alastor lapid

      The way that girl just popped on that girl's phone is terrifying.

    15. Sauce_Aux

      Damn there was Truth ads in skate and bike magazines back when I was 11, in like 2000 ... I figured they would have rebranded at this point. The ads are always gonna suck, cuz the tobacco companies pay for them-So of course they’ll do the bare minimum 😂

    16. chillednthrilled

      My fingers were crossed so hard at the sponsor time title card that this was actually sponsored by #truth

    17. NoahTM

      1:26 I wanna be the badass kid who's smoking a fucking old timey tobacco pipe in highschool

    18. Amanda Bermudez

      Another issue is that companies and people take being “kid friendly” and censorship for children as more important. I don’t know why people think that censorship is more important than being honest with children. Companies have a hard time reaching the younger demographic that are on the internet, a lot companies and their products or campaigns are targeted at children and in turn try to also make it “kid friendly” as well as “relatable” and they miss the mark everytime. One of the biggest disconnect adults have with children and teens is treating them like they aren’t humans dealing with problems and growing up with a complicated mind and complicated views on the world they live in. Companies just further push this disconnect by making shit kid friendly/relatable. Treat teens and kids like actual humans beings and there would be no problem.

    19. vampsk84

      I was at warped tour in 2017, and someone from truth walked up to me and asked if i wanted some free stuff. At the time i had no clue what truth was so i was like fuck yeah i want some free stuff. So they had me sign up for their email or whatever and they gave me some shitty stickers or something but i have been getting cringe up in my email for the past 4 years its sick

    20. IllogicalClover03

      I’m 23 almost 24 and I feel the impact on my lungs from when I was fresh outta high school. It’s not worth it guys.

    21. Bert Harbinson

      My entire family smokes thats all the scare I need to not smoke besides I promised my nana but I will smoke cigars and weed though but not cigarettes

    22. GigaPixel

      I had TiVo growing up so I'd just skip the all the ads. Problem solved.

    23. Deconyus

      Vapes should never have targeted anyone under 18 just because its vapor and not smoke. Kids and teens don’t need to smoke at all and shouldnt think its now okay to do before they can grasp what theyre actually doing to themselves.

    24. Brastix

      Eddy, I respect you so much for this. You raise awareness for smoking, and made the whole video entertaining, including the ad read even! This is just a damn good video, and you just genuinely seem like a good person. To be a commentary channel that isn’t just constantly bullying people and trying to find the positive is just so amazing to me. Keep up the good work, my friend.

    25. SweptApostle

      I am glad to say that on my own I managed to quit smoking cigarettes and haven't smoked one since October 2020.

    26. Blargus__

      this is a reuploaded filthy frank vid lmao

    27. AJSSPACEPLACE

      I don’t like the idea that adults can’t enjoy flavors that are traditionally considered for kids. Like, I’m 21. I’ve grown up with artificial flavors like Watermelon, Bubblegum, and blue raspberry. Why should I loose access to vape juices with these flavors, just because kids occasionally get ahold of them?

    28. Joseph Davis

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't TikTok supposed to SUPPORT cancer?

    29. Mary Johnson

      I actually didn't think vaping could possibly be so addictive until I saw so many kids in my high school doing it, even my brother, and they'd all say the same thing, "I can put it down whenever I want, it's just for fun, I'm totally in control!" Then there parents will find out and take all there vapes and cash and stuff, and I've seen first-hand, teens *begging* my brother to use his, or borrow some cash to buy more. It's absolutely insane how addicted they are after a single month.

    30. I don’t mind pineapple on pizza

      Ever since a few month before a friend got pregnant she stoped smoking and hasn’t started and it has been a year or so.

      1. Garryzento

        i love pineapple on pizza

    31. Noel Charlebois

      what about "the real cost" idk if its only on tv but I remember the commercials and the people would like peel off their skin for cigarettes and stuff hopefully you see this comment because those ads use to scare my ass when I was little

    32. red fang

      Your editing is HMMM exquisite. I mean it's awesome

    33. My Man

      Eddy an add came on that showed two people playing cruel angels thesis with a keyboard and saxhorn it was awesome

      1. Garryzento

        very nice

    34. discreatveus

      A good hit works

    35. Killer Miller

      EDDY! Stop what youre doing, grab up Gus, drive to NY and audition for SNL. That is your path.

    36. Lewis Maddox

      yeah i instinctively grab my vape whenever i see any of those ads. like i dont even realize it anymore. same with most of the other campaigns from other companies too. at least i quit smoking since i started vaping. also not even for my health or anything but vaping and smoking in general is an expensive habit and its really not worth it. take that money and put it towards something cool and youll thank yourself later. i actually did this when i switched to vaping because it was that much cheaper than smoking for me and eventually i had enough to get a really nice watch, and that was worth it for sure

    37. Doug

      I'm one of those guys that the truth ads kinda annoyed, and I've been struggling with nicotine since early high school, and I'm in my early 20s now. I'm lucky enough to not get hit with any health problems (yet). I quit long term about a week ago, and I've been slowing down and taking breaks for the last few months. It kinda sucks to feel as drained and disoriented as I am, but I already feel so much physically stronger, and I feel so much more in control. I love feeling this way, but I'm scared of just slipping back in.

    38. not Ella

      They need to scar children for life if they want their message to work. All the dancing makes it look like a light-hearted issue. The ads of old people with holes in their neck because they can't breathe or the ones with people whose teeth were rotting and falling out scarred me so badly that being around someone smoking scares me

    39. darkeyce02

      Vape companies don't target kids with flavors. Juul the scape goat for truth, has the least appealing flavors. It's literally tobacco flavors. Truth has been in the vape fear campaign for a while. They don't give facts at face value, they exaggerate and try to scare people who other wise could quit smoking using a vape.

    40. Audacity

      There is nothing wrong with vaping.

      1. Superrinus Blick

        It smells bad and it hurts people most importantly the person hat vapes

    41. Noe Ramirez

      They should just scare the shit out of kids, like the older smoking ad campaigns. There was one where a guy in a wheelchair told you not to smoke and it worked like a charm with me. It scared the living hell out of me a kid.

    42. sunchild -

      *hits vape* interesting

    43. GenuinePie

      Thank you, Eddy. This is solid - keep making noise because you have a platform to do so

    44. Bugbears and Wormwood

      I’ve smoked a pack a day since I was 18. That’s $25,000 I could’ve blown on video games, gin or hookers

    45. EnyalatorFlux

      To be fair you have to be stupid and attention craving enough to feel the urge to breathe druggy water through a metal sick to start vaping anyways. Its just natural selection when they get cancer and die.

      1. Superrinus Blick

        not how natural selection works, but vaping is still bad

    46. Andrea Gettling

      The coolest one (im not saying it was the best in terms of effectiveness) was the one where the guy threw a bunch of juuls into cups but the juul would stop before it went into the cup until he threw last one and then they all went into their cups at the same time

    47. Lia H

      Me casually smoking a cigarette while watching this video: 🚬👁👄👁

    48. Maggie

      the worst are the spotify ones

    49. Noa Zaltzman

      This is such a good video!!! i feel like you had a bigger impact on people who think about quitting than those ads

    50. SupraDeluxx

      IDK I think its petty that the "Truth" is going after E-cigs. being up their own asses with statistics they should know that its a better alternative. but not making commercials aint getting grants and tax write offs from the department of health so.......yolo *fortnite dances*

    51. rainisokday

      finally a man for the people

    52. David Crider

      I feel bad for them, they want to help, and have no Idea what they’re doing

    53. Damian9303

      Love how he didn’t make reference to the Pyscho Girlfriend but the “ERMAHGERD” which he pronounced incorrectly.. What does he know about memes lol?

    54. Gavin the Comrade

      I’m only 14 and I would never smoke, even when I’m an adult I wouldn’t, I have asthma

      1. Lia H

        Good! It’s difficult to stop once you start you’ll be doing your body a huge favour

    55. IKEAbirdLivesOn

      Please come back to iFunny!

    56. Gabriel Antos

      To anyone trying to quit l-theanine (a cheap amino acid that's in green tea) helps limit the effect of nicotine somewhat like how suboxone blocks opiates

    57. Luke mccaulley

      This video has made more of a impact than than anti smoking ads have

    58. Pistol Slothely

      Im 30 my dude and smoke a pack anday from 15-23 quit for 2 years then vaped for 2 years then dipped for 2 years. Finally got quit this year. Still crave nicotine all the time. Its hard to describe the feeling of knowing what your doing is pointless and harmful but feeling like your not in control too stop. If dont smoke dont start and if you do smoke know that there are resources that can help you stop.

    59. Perfect Burden

      Meanwhile my school hosted an anti vaping escape room in the gender neutral bathroom a few years back

    60. kiko S

      Thanks for speaking up about this especially for the minorities being targeted

    61. Paige Mahler

      Anyone else Immediately notice the KGuprs that were in the commercial at the beginning?

    62. Angel

      this is amazing, thank you for speaking about this. these kids are such easy targets its so sad to see big tobacco exploit them like they have #fuckyoujuul

    63. The Lost Dojo

      I got unsubbed >;(

    64. Alpha Chad

      Dude, I was always afraid of those commercials where those people were paying for cigarettes with their skin and teeth. That sure scared me away from the idea from smoking. And I was always afraid of seeing those burnt pork chop looking lungs... Lean into fear, I guess.

    65. MidwestNerd

      I'm about a year older than you. I started smoking off and on in 2012 and switched to vaping in 2014 as a means to an end. I finally stopped vpaing completely in 2018. Just a few weeks ago I caught COVID and because of all of the damage to my lungs while I was growing up I damn near died. Luckily I'm recovering now but at 24 years old I am regretting that decision I made as a kid

    66. anonymous blanketgirl

      Fun fact: A girl nearly died from vaping. Her name was Simah Herman. I think Truth should give facts that convince others not to vape, like this fact.

    67. Gabriel GSA84 Novich

      Cant we just realize most these kids who does not stop are stupid? Im 14 and never taken any kind of intoxication thingymajing. If you are so stupid you are intentionally permanently damaging yourself, *not EVEN for jokes* its horrifying.

      1. Gabriel GSA84 Novich

        @cheese guy okay sounds cool(in a concerned way)

      2. cheese guy

        Yes, you're right to some degree. The thing is, though, addiction pretty much rewires the brain. Especially in kids who (mostly) all have really high neuroplasticity. Your body truly believes that you NEED it to stay alive, like food or water, even when that's irrational

    68. Evan 3

      The little lungs in A Great Big World ads scared the hell out of me because in every ad the little lungs get impaled or stabbed in some shape or form

      1. Lia H

        Yeah those ones were creepy

    69. Begnsteal

      Your the only one I wait for the ads lol

    70. Hidden Fate

      See, I don’t have Tiktok but every time I see their ads it’s actual facts about smoking/vaping. Which is effective - at the very least more so than this

    71. Ozmataz Groves

      I'm for anti-smoking campaigns and against smoking in general. I vape now and used to smoke a pack a day. I gotta say the flavors aren't for kids. They exist to draw adults into the healthier alternative (and also hobbiest like making and trying new recipes). If you don't believe me; Would you prefer apples or severely burnt toast? Strawberry milkshake or tree bark? Candy or dirt? The flavors are to help people stay off cigarettes by giving them something more enjoyable and less harmful. Dont start either if you currently don't partake, but definitely try to go to vaping if you are on cigs.

    72. Salty Butter

      The best way to get people to stop smokinh isto just show real people with horrible smoking side effects.this one woman's nose was so black and full of tar to the point it was entering her brain, now she just doesnt have a nose anymore

    73. Na2awesome • 2 years ago

      You should see the NHS anti- antibiotics adverts to stop overdosing on medicine

    74. Sun Ryder

      good ol' filthy frank made a video about how cringy this anti smoking ads before. i miss him....

    75. Krash Furst

      I hate to be that guy that defends the truth.org's content, but the beat drop magician with the card, he WAS holding a face card...

    76. ThatOneMexiCHUNGUS

      Before: Oh hey, a "talentless hack" just popped into my feed. After: Yeah, just as I thought. Fuckin Keem.

    77. Evan Weaver

      Remember that south park bit with the cringey anti-smoking people? “Remember kids: if you don’t smoke, you could grow up to be just like us!” “Cough cough cough dude smoking is hard, but we gotta keep going.”

    78. DeadlyFredXXX

      Honestly I think the moronic ads are perfectly targeted...

    79. Marcos Sanchez

      I eat ciggarettes. Ten packs a day.

    80. Shit Multiverse

      "Heavy metal song about environmental damages" There's already an entire album by Gojira about that...

    81. darkninjafirefox

      Quitting cigarettes/vaping is much harder than people give credit for. If you're struggling with quitting hang in there!

    82. Gabriel Flamerich

      The new truth videos aren’t that bad

    83. LightLock

      honestly this video was more effective for me than truths ads.

    84. Godeaters Podcast

      They spread so much miss information about vapeing like saying vapeing can caous you to inhale toxic metals evan though you are no more likely to inhail toxic metals vapeing than you are if you were to just breathe oxygen

    85. Tvmgn

      clicked because I thought this was julien solomita

    86. Sir Poopsalot

      The theory that anti smoking adds are horrible intentionally so they won't be very affective.

    87. lily hoggarth

      bro I got a nicorette ad on this video

    88. Reese Cunningham

      hey eddie check ur inbox

    89. Commit Yeet

      The heavy metal song is actually decent clever because E Cigarette waste leaves heavy metals in the ground and stuff which damages the environment, or something like that I can't remember exactly but I do know E Cigarette waste leaves behind heavy metals which are bad for the environment

    90. Thicc Papa

      filthy frank reacted to these years ago, and jon tron covered the drug PSA's

    91. TunaKing5 YT

      I don't use Tik Tok and I can CONFIRM that I NEVER saw Truth as "CRINGY" bc on KGup and TV they only run the good ads (I didn't make this comment only to hate on Tik Tok but like... this goes to help prove many peoples point of why its "CRINGE", including mine)

    92. Tito

      You make a really good point when you say people don’t expect to regret taking up smoking until late into their adulthood’s. I started smoking when I was 14 and now at almost 21 I can say I’m already being SUFFOCATED with that harsh reality. Not only because of how garbage it is for yourself, others around you and the environment but HELLO your wallet!!! I don’t even like to think about the money I could have saved or put toward healthy activity’s and habits, but hey never to late to start and to anyone reading this I promise promise promise (and I know it’s not easy.) but you got this. You honestly do

      1. Lia H

        Exactly! I’m only 18 but I started when I was around 14 also and it really takes a toll after a while

    93. Lynette TheMadScientist

      There was this one PSA where a robot is eating food from a conveyer belt and then a can/box of drugs comes rolling down the belt into its mouth and the robot falls apart. It fucked me up so bad I skipped dinner.

    94. Jonathon Rodriguez Thomas

      You know the meme ones are quite funny to look back on, though I feel that it is more in a cringe sort of way, it's also nice to see that the hookah it still somewhat in use you don't see those often.

    95. Just another Jojo Weeb

      I know it sounds wrong but I honestly think the advertisements should be scary as fuck and tell facts about vaping and smoking because those types of ads scare the kids out of doing vaping and smoking, those “Real Cost” ads scared the shit out of me as a kid while also educating me on the dangers of smoking, that’s probably why I don’t vape or smoke

      1. cheese guy

        Yes exactly. Fear of death/ailment is innate so showing morbid images is actually a great idea. It really scared me when I was a kid too. Really effective

    96. Born of Zapata’s Guns

      I can’t believe you didn’t mention “No you don’t always die from tabaco”

    97. Dizzy K. Block

      Are we not talking about Ryan Higa being in the first anti smoking commercial ?

    98. Tommy Pigskin

      maybe the tobacco companies are buying these anti smoking trusts and purposefully making terrible ads to indirectly make people smoke more

    99. elfkid4

      I quit smoking but I began in high school despite all the ads because at the time I was depressed&suicidal and didn't care about the costs to my body. I knew a lot of people who picked up vaping and smoking around the same time with the same mindset. I wish more ads talked about mental health in conjunction with tobacco use, because its definitely a problem from what I've seen.

    100. doback

      yeah hey as a 16 year old who’s vaped for way too fucking long these ads really don’t make me want to quit. Just saying.

      1. doback

        @cheese guy oh nah man I fucking hate it just fell into a bad thing that’s pretty hard to get out of

      2. cheese guy

        Probably because you've rewired your entire brain to be addicted and see it as crucial resource for survival like water or food. Or the alternative which is that you just think it's cool
