Those lovely people in ASH have come up with an absolute whiz of an idea.

They are all giggly and slapping each other on the back and hugging each other and saying how excited they are and this is a cracker of an idea and it is sooooo funny.

They are going to launch their new campaign called "The Wrinkler" and they cannot wait until the big day.

They are going to advertise cigarettes and tell us all how those cigarettes will give us wrinkles!

Now I thought advertising cigarettes for any reason was banned, but if they can do it, then so can I –

OK, so this is more of an advertisement for Photoshop than cigarettes so maybe that's how they get around the law, but is there a grain of truth in their presentation?  Do cigarettes in fact cause wrinkles?

I decided to have a look.

Now it's not easy finding photographs of people who do or do not smoke as they tend not to advertise that aspect of themselves either way, but I persevered.


James Reilly

OMG!!  Would you just look at the poor wretch!  Look at those ghastly wrinkles and the blotchy skin.  Look at the nicotine stained hair!  The poor man.  He looks as if he's in his seventies but hard though it is to believe, he is only 59!  The ravages of his smoking addiction have certainly left their mark there,


David Bowie

Good heavens, just look at the difference!  The smooth blemish free skin with just a few laughter wrinkles around the eyes.  The difference is incredible!  Now you will not believe this but this chap is 68!!  Yes – he is a full nine years older than our poor smoking wretch above, but just look at the difference between the complexion and hair!  He's maybe nine years older but he looks twenty years younger.  Who would think that those evil cigarettes could make such a difference?  He was very wise to stay off those disgusting cigarettes, wasn't he?

So maybe The Wrinkler works after all?

Whoda thunk it?

  1. LOL!

    And guess, who're really gonna be asking for "The Winkler"?

    That's right: The Cheeeelrdren!

    For the young ones this is totally appealing. Look as mature as you feel. Never be told again by those old prunes to "wait 'til you're older" or "you don't look old enough".

    • Heh!!  Welcome, Norbert.  Indeed, seeing as many [if not most] of their efforts have backfired completely, then you are more than likely spot on.

  2. And let us not forget that Mr Bowie has doubtless indulged in lots more that the simple pleasures of tobacco during his Rock'n'Roll years. I have to say he looks remarkably good on it!

    Jesus, but that Reilly is a fat pig of a man. He looks as if his heart is going to explode at any moment.

    • We went through a nice period here of employing the most unhealthy people possible as our health ministers.  Reilly is a classic heart attack waiting to happen [I'll say nothing…  *cough*] and before that we had that fat slug Mad Cow Harney.  At least the current incumbent looks as if he has a reasonable chance of hitting the sixties.

  3. These are actually adults who made this video? And they were serious? Looks more like something Monty Python would've come up with.

    • That is the kind of mentality that sucks up millions of Dollars/Euros/Whatever to further their cause.  Pretty pathetic?

      • Pathetic is the word alright. Especially when you consider the ones who actually buy into this rather obvious BS and not just the ones selling it.
