Philip Morris Advertisement

July 13, 1988

I would like to say, "I can't believe it!" But I can believe it--the shameless arrogance of all-powerful Philip Morris.

The full-page ad implied, and threatened, brazenly--smoking is good because it makes money, lots of money, for America!

If so, then:

Cocaine is good because it makes money, lots of money, for Colombia!

Slave labor is good because it kept industry costs down in Nazi Germany!

People die from smoking, remember?

But that's not important. Profit, over people, is what's important!

So, everybody, remember to "CALL . . . FOR . . . PHILIP . . . MORRIS!"
