This anti-smoking campaign really stanks

Nostankyou_1 Has the state of Washington abandoned its anti-smoking advertising strategy which called for creepy little dolls to stuff dead animals in their mouths? Could be, since we just got a release about a state anti-smoking effort created by WongDoody, called “No Stank You.” Like the dead animals campaign, this effort, geared toward teens, doesn’t deal with health issues as much as, well, aesthetic ones. It includes a vlog, in which a teen news crew goes out and, well, goes places. In the scene above, a young reporter, Pierce, goes to the Washington state fair and finds things, besides cigarettes, that smell bad, which include live animals.
