Kids are smoking early in New York State

Smokingkid New York City has the insufferable Throat-Hole Guy to robotically voice its anti-smoking message. Not to be outdone, New York State has its own batch of disturbing anti-smoking ads, including the one that shows kids breathing out smoke—victimized simply by being around parents who indulge in the habit. The best shot is the girl shown here, who has a kind of Exorcist thing going on as she chuckles maniacally, smoking pouring from her nostrils. Given the incessant competition between New York City and the rest of the state, we should probably expect NYC to introduce Throat-Hole Kid shortly.
